Elizabeth Curry

September 23, 1938 — January 8, 2023

Quakertown

Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Curry, 84, of Quakertown passed away at her home on January 8, 2023. She was born in Philadelphia on September 23, 1938 to the late Peter and Rose (Brady) Mullin. She was the loving wife of Leonard Nytz for 22 years until his passing in 1982, and to Robert Curry for 2 years until his passing in 1992.

Betty was a loving mother and grandmother, an avid reader, and nature lover. As a young girl, she found enjoyment in horses where she would assist in their upkeep in exchange for riding time. She also loved listening to music and attending live concerts. Some of her favorite artists were John Denver and Johnny Mathis, who she excitedly met in person at a local concert hall. She also had the thrill of a lifetime when she was called up on stage after she baked a cake for Peter Wolf, lead singer of the J. Geils band, and participated with the entire audience in a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday. A major event for such a shy young woman.

She traveled the world as a Navy wife for many years while raising her young children before settling down in Florida to run a successful and popular fishing camp with her family on Lake Lochloosa. She eventually returned to Pennsylvania and went back to school to obtain her GED at the age of 42 after her children were grown. She went on to have a very fulfilling career as a book keeper and office manager for Lower Southampton Township for nearly 20 years until her retirement. Her remaining years were filled with joy attending her grandchildren's sporting events, watching her favorite Philadelphia Phillies on television, collecting anything related to lighthouses, and catching up with her extended family and friends.

Betty is survived by her children Christina (Edward) DePamphilis, Lawrence (Renae) Nytz, John (Marcella) Nytz, and Michael (Teri) Nytz; grandchildren Jack, Keegan, Ryan, Matthew, John, and Marcella; brothers Thomas and Joseph Mullin; and many other loving family and friends. She is predeceased by her parents; both husbands; grandson Christian Lawrence Nytz; and siblings Edward, Catherine, Peter, Loretta, and Frank.

All are invited on Thursday, January 12, 2023 to a visitation from 10:00am-10:55am and a funeral mass at 11:00am, both at St. Isidore's Roman Catholic Church, 2545 W. Pumping Station Rd., Quakertown, PA 18951.
