Letha Marie Guthrie Curtis of St. Clair, MO, departed this life in Union, MO on May 10, 2010 having reached the age of forty-seven years and eight months. Letha was born in Washington, MO on September 10, 1962, daughter of Donald Lee Guthrie and Gracie Mae Guthrie nee Payton.

Letha was a Christian and member of Duly Baptist Church in St. Clair. Her favorite pastime was reading her Bible and prayer books and attending church. Doing embroidery and going for drives and sight seeing were other favorite pastimes. Letha had a passion for horses and loved her dogs. She was very family oriented and nothing made her happier than spending time with her family. Although she had no children of her own, she loved her nephews as though they were her own children and treasured the time they shared.

A devoted and loving fiancée, sister, niece, aunt, cousin and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
