Angie died Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012, at Genesis Medical Center, East Rusholme Street, Davenport, following a brief illness.
Angie Farber was born on Jan. 27, 1932, in Clinton, Iowa, a daughter of Raymond and Vera Martin Farber. She was raised in DeWitt until she started high school, and graduated from Immaculate Conception Academy, Davenport, in 1950. She was united in marriage to Paul Curtis on Dec. 26, 1997, at Holy Family Catholic Church, Davenport. He preceded her in death on Oct. 5, 2005.
Angie was employed by the former Peterson Harned Von Maur for 10 years. She retired in 1990 from the Rock Island Arsenal, following 24 years as a supply specialist in the Defense Ammunition Directorate.
Angie was a member of the American Business Women's Association from 1970 until 1989, where she won numerous awards. She also was a former star volunteer for the Genesis Medical Center Auxiliary, and a member of Holy Family Church for over 66 years.
She was an avid reader, and enjoyed her lunch dates with former co-workers or classmates from ICA nearly every single day. Angie was also a proud cancer survivor of 45-plus years.
Memorials may be made to Holy Family Church.
She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Margaret Eileen and Richard Loos, Davenport; nieces and nephew, Patty (Ron) Miller, Moline, Mike (Tammy) Loos, Davenport, and Beth Loos, Moline; great-nieces and -nephews, Samantha (Landon) Geronzin, Erinn Shaffer, Billy Hermanson, Courtney Loos and Brandon Loos; and Mr. Curtis' children, Bob (Pat) Curtis, Blue Grass, Fran (Salvador) Santos, Pueblo West, Colo., Charles (Cammie) Curtis, Wheaton, Ill., Paul (Wendy) Curtis, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Connie (the late David Breece) Curtis.
