Gale Fritz-Curtiss Obituary

Gale received her wings on March 11, 2024 at the age of 71, surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her memory by living their lives to the fullest.

Gale was preceded in death by her mother, Irma Fritz- Jones; sons, Donovyn T. Fritz and James C. Fritz; sister, Victoria B. Fritz; brother, Dale V. Fritz and granddaughter, Mizette Printup.

Gale leaves to cherish her memory: her loving husband, Samuel L. Curtiss; her daughters, Dionne (Paul) Camp, Jamie Fritz, and Jannelle (Ralph) Benton; bonus children, Kimberly Reed, Tracie Craft, Sandi Moreland and Samuel L. Curtiss Jr.; sister, Deborah (Jeff) Davis; brothers, Arthur Fritz Jr., Ian Fritz, Adrian Fritz and Darryl Montgomery; nieces, Dechelle (Lamar) Beckham, DeAnne Groves, Tracey Glenn, Merisha White and Ronesca Reid; nephews, Dexter Fritz and Dezmond Fritz; grandchildren, Bruce Byrd, Brandon Byrd, JaCorria Cortner Jenay Benton, James Benton, Derrick Kidd, Jamicia Kidd, Jazmine Kidd, Daniel Kidd, Asia Caldwell and Daaryn’ah Willoughby; great grandchildren, Doryan Frazier, Ja’Ceon Langston, Ja’Carri Langston, Kyden Byrd, Avery McElrath-Byrd, LaDaris Bryant, Kiyah Bryant and Karter Brown along with a host of cousins, great nieces and nephews, other family members and friends.

Gale accepted Christ early in life. It gives us pleasure to know that she is in the arms of our loving father. 

She was a hard-working mother who loved and adored her children. She was so proud of all of her grandkids and tickled by her great grandkids. She was loyal and fiercely defended her husband and family, and was not to be messed with...

She was pretty clever with her words and was not shy about speaking up for what she knew was right.  She was a great listener and problem solver at the same time. She was always someone you could go to and knew you would get an unbiased opinion. Many would say she had wisdom beyond her years.

She defended her dog “Butch” at doggie school, when they would say he was untrainable, “that was a no-no".

She was passionate about her work and patient care, which earned her “Employee of the Year.”

She had this angelic voice with dancing eyes that was sure to put a smile on your face.

The time God allowed us to spend with Gale will be honored, cherished and truly unforgettable.
