Nelia de Jesus Curtis, 73, of Greenville, MS passed away peacefully at home on August 26, 2020.Nelia was born in Antipolo Rizal, Philippines on March 30, 1947, to Demetrio and Florencia de Jesus. In 1973, she was recruited to work as a nurse in America. She compassionately practiced nursing for all but the last four years of her adult life.
Nelia wholeheartedly loved her family. Second to that, she loved to travel. Even while battling illness, she explored Spain, France, England, Ireland, the Philippines, Korea, and New York City. She also had a passion for cooking and all things food.
Nelia is preceded in death by her parents, Demetrio and Florencia de Jesus, and brothers, Emmie and Jessie. She is survived by her daughter, LaDonna Holland (Chad) of Madison, MS; son, Nicky Curtis (Sarah) of Quezon City, Philippines; grandchildren, Izzy, Dimitri, Zurich, Evan, and Daphne; and sister, Tessie de Jesus of Antipolo Rizal, Philippines. Nelia also loved and was loved by “the Dixon girls,” Perla, who was like a sister, and Theresa, Michelle, and Diana, whom she loved like daughters.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to French Camp Academy. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date.
