Nodee Curtis had many interests, especially when crafting nice creations with her hands.

She was tops with a sewing needle and made many blankets and other crocheting items, said her son, Joseph Varella.

She was equally talented when holding a paint brush, he said.

In her younger years, Curtis loved painting beautiful flowers and various landscapes, he noted.

Nodee L. Curtis, 81, of Hobart, formerly of Gary, died March 21.

In her professional life, she crafted a 38-year career with Indiana Bell. She worked in many Indiana Bell offices, including in Gary and at Inland Steel, before retiring in 1991.

Her son recalled many happy holiday celebrations as he was growing up, including his mother's baking specialties such as pies and cakes.

"She used to make big dinners" for the holidays, including breaded pork chops and roasts.

Curtis was a very generous and caring woman.

"She used to donate to the Christopher Zorich Foundation," Varella said. She also gave money to other charities.

"We will all miss her very dearly," her son lovingly said of both family and friends.
