Marlys was born on July 19, 1940, in Menomonie, WI. Marlys was the eighth of 12 children born to Mary and Walter Price. She grew up in Wisconsin, but life took her to Florida, Missouri, and finally Minnesota. Marlys married Earl Curtis on March 15, 1969, in Lindstrom, MN. When her health and eyesight were still good, she had many interests that included puzzles, reading, fishing, crocheting, and was an avid Minnesota Twins fan. She enjoyed the many years that she and Earl spent time at their lake home.
Although she would never tell you in many words, she greatly loved her family and spending time with both her children and grandchildren; especially during the holidays. Family gatherings were her favorite. Although a country music fan, she did admit to one of her daughters that she had always like Elton John.
