Marjorie Curr Obituary

Marjorie Ann Curr

December 10, 1938- February 21, 2024

It is with saddened hearts we say our final goodbye to our dear mother of 85 years. She is survived by her daughters, Sherri-Ann Shura (Mike); grandson, Adam; Lynette Curr (Dave); great-granddaughter Tenika Johnson and son Jeffrey Curr (Donna). Marjorie was predeceased by her husband, James George Curr in January 1999 and her grandson, Jesse Daniel James Curr in December 2010. 

Majorie was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. From an early age she was trained in voice and piano and sang in various church choirs that carried her into her adult years. She met and married her husband, James Curr on June, 29, 1957. After their children were born and in school, Marjorie went to work for the Edmonton School Board working in the Educational Department at North Edmonton School. They continued to live in Edmonton until 1974, when they bought an acreage near Millet, Alberta and moved there with their three children. Gardening and canning took up much of her time in the summer as well as crocheting and doing pottery throughout the year. She also worked at the Millet Library and was an avid reader. She loved to cook and cake decorate and was very good at both.  Welcoming friends and family to her table, there was always plenty to go around and no one left the table hungry. In later years, after her kids left home, Marjorie and James sold the acreage and moved into Millet. Although they did some travelling in their motorhome after James retired, while still living on the acreage, they decided to do a lot more of seeing Alberta, B.C. and the U.S. When her husband passed in 1999, she continued to reside in Millet until 2016, when she moved to Okotoks, Alberta, to be closer to her eldest daughter, Sherri and her family.  Her greatest enjoyments in life were singing, painting, playing the piano, reading, playing with her cats and spending time with her family especially her two grandsons and great-granddaughter. We will miss you mom! Only later in life and when we have families of our own we realize the enormous wealth of knowledge you passed onto us. Thank you for being our mom.
