Mrs. John Curry Passes To Rest
Mrs. John Curry passed away Saturday, Jan. 16, 1937, at the home of her son, William G. Curry, near Flora. She had been in poor health for months, suffering from troubles brought on by her advanced age. Funeral services were held at Flora Methodist church Tuesday, conducted by the pastor, Rev. H. G. Luscombe, and burial was in the Flora cemetery.
Lizzie Maria Burnett was born in Ireland, Dec. 12, 1857, and came to the United States alone when a young woman. She was married to John Curry at Seattle, Wash., March 26, 1887. Then years later Mr. Curry came to explore Wallowa county and filed on a homestead in the north end, which remained his home until he passed away, Feb. 23, 1935, and has been the home of his widow since then.
Mrs. Curry was survived by four children: William G. and Samuel of Flora, Vena of Long Beach, Cal., and Mrs. J. B. Rowell of Honolulu, Hawaii territory and by 11 grandchildren. Two children passed away years ago. Miss Curry came from California for the funeral, her brothers meeting her at the train late Monday night.
A long time resident of the county, Mrs. Curry had done her full part in the development of the north end. She was a woman of kind and gentle character and was loved by all.
