Mother Linda Washington Curtis

October 3, 1948 ~ January 23, 2021 (age 72)

It is with heartfelt sorrow that the management and staff of Mitchell-Josey Funeral Home, Inc. announces the passing of Mother Linda Washington Curtis of Florence, formally of Darlington who transitioned peacefully from labor to reward on Saturday, January 23, 2021 in McLeod Hospital. 

Celebration of Life for Mother Linda W. Curtis will be 1:00PM on Saturday, January 30, 2021 in the Church Yard of Glorious Remnant Revival Church, 109 Langston Road, Darlington.  Interment will follow in the Faith Memorial Gardens, Rogers Road, Darlington.

Mother Linda Washington Curtis was born October 3, 1948, in Georgetown, SC.  She was the daughter of the late James and Mary Rodgers Washington.  She was the seventh child of nine born into this union.  She was reared by her aunt, Nancy (Jake) Rodgers Hiers.  She departed this earthly life on January 23, 2021 at McLeod Regional Medical Center. 

Linda, affectionately known to many as “Nannie,” attended Florence County Schools and was a proud member of the 1966 graduating class of Wilson High School.  She also attended and graduated from Florence-Darlington Technical College with a degree in Nursing.    

She continued her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse at Faith Nursing Home, McLeod Regional Medical Center, and Nitronics of Darlington as staff nurse. Continuously displaying a love for people, she was promoted as a Human Resources manager at Nitronics, along with maintaining her nursing position within the company. In 1984, Linda resigned from Nitronics to be a helpmeet for her husband in running the family business, Curtis Oil & Trucking Company.  They worked diligently together, with Linda also opening Linda’s Boutique and C&M Grocery with her husband’s support. Eventually, their work together led to the reorganizing of the companies to Curtis Enterprises of Darlington, Inc, where she later retired.

Linda was a faithful woman of God and a mighty prayer warrior.  Her favorite scripture was Psalm 118:17: I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.  She served God through her church until her health declined. Linda gave her life to Christ as a young woman at Round O Baptist Church where she served on the Missionary Board, UBIA Ministries, Spiritual Choir, and Youth Department Advisor for several years until she was led by Holy Spirit to transfer her membership to Glorious Remnant Revival Community where her spiritual growth continued. As a member of Glorious Remnant Revival Community, Mother Curtis served as a member of the Finance Ministry, Wise Council, and a Children’s Church teacher.  Whatever her hands found to do, she did it will all her might (Ecclesiastes 9:10)

Linda loved to sit outside, attend church, read, travel, and spend time with her family.   She enjoyed watching old Western shows and ironing clothes.  Linda was a loving individual with a heart of gold and would do all she could to help anyone.  Her warm smile and contagious laugh will truly be missed.

Linda was a  devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, godmother, and friend. 

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband of thirty-six years, Samuel Cornelius Curtis; a stepson, Ronald Curtis, Sr.; three brothers, John Washington of Far Rockaway, NY, Bennie Washington of New Orleans, LA, and Lonzer Washington of Brooklyn, NY; one sister, Mattie Evans of Bronx, NY. 

She leaves to cherish her memories: three daughters: Anastacia (Jarvis) Simon of Darlington, SC, Tifani (Apostle Jeremiah) Merritt of Florence, SC, and Sandra Curtis (Kirby) Samuel of Darlington, SC; ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.  She also leaves two brothers: Rev. Levi (Christina) Washington of Hemingway, SC and Rodney (Carrie) Washington of Florence, SC; three sisters: Bertha Washington of Far Rockaway, NY, Emma Lee Seymore of Huntersville, NC, and Barbara Ann Washington of Fairburn, GA; three special godsons: Pastor Kelvin (Yvonne) Charles and Minister Lionell A. (Lakeisha) Cribb, both of Darlington, SC, and Eddie Robinson of Myrtle Beach, SC; a longtime friend, Sarah Gilbert of Hartsville, SC; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.  

Visitation for relatives and friends will held at the residence of a daughter and son-in-law, Anastasia and Jarvis Simon, 2304 Holly Circle, Darlington. Mask wearing is required to visit the residence. 

Please keep the Curtis Family in your thoughts and prayers.
