Carolyn Curry

April 18, 1941 — March 12, 2016

Carolyn Kay Curry, the daughter of Ray Harley and Lela Ethelene (Diggs) Wirth, was born April 18, 1941, in rural Taylor County, near New Market, Iowa. Carolyn entered eternal rest on Saturday, March 12, 2016, at the age of seventy-four years, ten months, and twenty-three days.
Carolyn was a member of the last class to graduate Nodaway High School, Nodaway, Iowa, in 1959. She was united in marriage to Terry Gene Curry on June 28, 1959 at the Methodist Church in Villisca, Iowa. They purchased farm ground in 1972, and have resided on their current farm since 1979. Five children were born to bless this union: Mike, Annette, Barb, Marc, and Matt.
Carolyn was a homemaker, raising five children, while diligently tending to her plants and flower gardens. Later, after her children were raised, she worked at the Carbon Post Office. Carolyn also worked as a cook at the “Back 40 Steakhouse” in Carbon. When it closed, Carolyn worked as the head cook at “Burgundy and Brass” in Corning, and eventually she cooked at the Corning hospital for several years. Carolyn retired from the hospital in 2011.
