There comes a time in our life that someone special touches us in such a way that leaves us with wonderful memories. Betty Jean Curry was just that person.
She touched some many lives that she came in contact with. Most knew her by the family nickname "Tweety Bird" . For the past few years she had been battling the dreadful disease Lupus, Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the body's healthy tissue. There are many kinds of lupus, but the most common and severe type is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which affects many internal organs in the body. SLE most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable.
She lost the battle on Monday, September 18, 2017.
