  • Grandma Curry was such an incredible woman. She has left us with a legacy of love and a lifetime of living- really living. She taught me by example so much about being who I am no matter what and about what it means to be loved and to love unconditionally- only a Grandma can do that statement justice. I love you Grandma and I am so grateful for the time that I have had with you.

  • Kathy,

    I have thought of you often through the years and wondered how to contact you. My condolences on the death of your mother. With the death of my own mother not that long ago I certainly understand your sorrow at this time.

    Please feel free to contact me at anytime! I would love to hear from you!

  • To the whole Curry Family

    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Mama Curry was very special to me and she always made me feel so welcome in her home. I have so many great memories of her especially at St. Patty’s day. She was a strong woman and sounds as if she was until the very end. My heart goes out to all of you at this difficult time.

    I shall miss her deeply.

    I must add that when I lost my mother Aggie, one of the older members of the family stated, ” I hope our Dad is in Heaven, but he better hold on to his hat. cause here comes Mom………

    God Bless all of you. Bob

  • I am so sorry to hear about your Mother and as you probably know I have alot of memories about her and your whole family. Mostly I think I remember her singing at the top of her lungs some of those old Irish songs and sitting in her rocking chair with a kid or two on her lap. I also remember helping her and Micky in the kitchen making pickles, I really thought that was fun. I know you are all going through a hard time right now. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  • I am so sad to hear of Aunt Deloris’s passing! I will miss the many visits we had through the years reminiscing about old times, her liveliness, her Irish wit, and her warmth and generosity. She was a wonderful person and now she will join the rest of her beloved family in heaven. God bless you all! Love, Eileen Wolf

  • Deloris was a wonderful mother-in-law. Some of my fondest memories are of mom holding my infant son, Ryan, in her arms. As Ryan grew, she continued to have him sit on her lap whenever we were together. But her lap just wasn’t for little ones, her lap held all of us adult children, too. We were never too heavy for her and she always enjoyed those times. Mom was a very spiritual woman and she showed me how powerful prayer can be. I will always be grateful for our time together and our friendship. I love you, mom.

  • My mother gave us all so many gifts throughout our lives. She taught us through example to have courage,persistence, strength, and above all unconditional love and loyalty for our family. She loved to sing, rock her babies, and cook wonderful homemade bread and chicken noodle soup. She was a tough mother- but she had to be with 9 children to raise. Her purpose in life was her family and her faith. I know she will watch over us all until we join her in heaven. I love you Mom.

  • I have read the obituary and all of the condolences for Deloris. I am just a stranger….

    researching the line/connection between my grandfather Casey Carter Curry, my mom Frances and George Curry of the Hole In The Wall gang/Butch Cassidiy, Sundance Kid etc. when i ran across William Arthur Curry and then Deloris incidentally. All of this is irrelevant to what I have to say and that is this:

    I have read many, many obituaries and tributes to passed-on relatives and I have never come across such an interesting woman and one who seemed to be so loved and so Christian as this lady, this mother and grandmother. I’m sorry for your loss as temporary as it is and beg your forgiveness if I am not welcome here. Yours With Christ, Linda Finch

  • Your mother will be truly missed by many of us here in the Siouxland area.

    I was fortunate enough to be able to visit with her on my travels through Washington. We shared many stories and fond memories of the old days in Siouxland.

    Love always,
