Lisa Ann Lyman Curley died Tuesday, March 8, 2005 at her home in Morgan Hill. She was 45.
Mrs. Curley succumbed to terminal brain cancer with which she was diagnosed last July.
She was born April 30, 1959 in Provo, Utah. She and her family have lived in Morgan Hill for the past 18 years where she has been active in her children’s schools, in the community, and in her church. A professional seamstress, she owned her own drapery business for many years, but her real love was working with young children. For the past seven years Mrs. Curley taught junior kindergarten at Oakwood Country School where she blessed the lives of many 5-year-olds and their families.
She is survived by her husband, Douglas Ward Curley; children, Amelia Kate Curley Ortiz of Mesa, Ariz., Miles Lyman Curley, currently serving an LDS mission in Naga, Philippines, and Annalise Curley, a junior at Live Oak High School; parents, Richard and Mary Ann Lyman; granddaughter, Abigail Lisa Ortiz; and her siblings Lynda Bassett (Craig), Leslie Nelson (Steven), and Kendall Lyman (Donna).
Visitation will be held from 7 to 9pm Friday, March 11, 2005, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1790 E. Dunne Ave., Morgan Hill.
Memorial services, to which everyone is invited, will be held at 10am Saturday, March 12, 2005, at the church’s chapel.
In lieu of flowers, a college scholarship fund for her children has been established. Contributions should be made payable to “Oakwood Country School – Lisa Curley Fund” and sent to 105 John Wilson Way, Morgan Hill, CA 95037.
Lisa will be greatly missed by all who knew her and who were blessed by her cheerful life.
Arrangements are under the direction of Habing Family Funeral Home, Gilroy.
