It is with regret that we write of Etta McCurry’s passing on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. She had been a deeply valued member of Partners in Care Foundation and GSWEC. Etta’s career with Partners’ started in 2003 until retiring in 2020.


During her time with Partners, she worked with the Administrative Team, Community Wellness, the Geriatric Social Work Education Consortium (GSWEC), and the Evidence-Based Leadership Council (EBLC), among others.




Staff who worked with Etta all have similar things to say about her:

“Etta’s presence was a balm to those around her.”

“She was supportive without being a push over”

“Etta provided a calmness, support and sincerity to whatever it was that she was approaching.”

“She was kindness personified and will be deeply missed by those of us who had the privilege of working with her.”

“Etta was very talented and very smart; her work was outstanding.”


Our condolences to all who worked with or knew Etta.

June Simmons, CEO of Partners in Care Foundation and GSWEC Steering Committee Co-Chair
