Sue Curtner, 76, of Jonesboro passed away on Friday, January 19, 2018 while in Ohio.
Sue was born in Jonesboro on May 6, 1941 to the late Roscoe Tinsley and Sylvia Farrar Burrington. She married her husband, Rayborn Don, in April of 1957 and she moved to California with her husband after they were married. She acquired her nickname while serving tables in California by saying “Hi, my name is Sue, how do you do?” She returned to Jonesboro in 1994 to be close to most of her family. Sue’s house was always welcoming of any family that needed her. Along with her own children, she raised her sister’s (Alma) children upon her passing until they were adults. As the matriarch of the family, she also helped raise her grandchildren and even some great grandchildren with lots of love, humor, discipline and home-cooked meals (including everyone’s favorite, biscuits and gravy).
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Rayborn Don Curtner; her sisters Alma Hutchison and Marie Hanks; grandson, Dennis Curtner Jr.
She is survived by her two sons, Dennis Curtner of Calico Rock, and Michael Curtner (Tia) of Jonesboro; three daughters, Elaine Barnhart (Merl) of Ohio, Misty Moreno (Guy) of Jonesboro, and Johanna Curtner of Ohio; fifteen grandchildren, Rayborn Ford, Heather Schramm, Alex Zazueta, Nikita Gale, Nick Dolittle, Andrew Moreno, Alysha Bowers, Elena Moreno, Guy Moreno Jr., Leah Moreno, Desirae Hernandez, Martin Navarro, Natalie Navarro, Lee Curtner, and Aiden Curtner; seventeen great grandchildren, Jamie, Alysha, Aubreigh, Rayla, Makenzie, Mason, Hallie, Liam, Hannah, Evan, Caterina, Ray Jr., Ashley, Haley, Waylon, Asher, and Annistyn; and a host of other family and friends.
