The Greatest Wife and Mom

Our wonderful and beloved wife and mother, Mary Bell Devotie Currie, 82, of Galveston, Texas was born November 28, 1924 on the island and passed away into the Lord�s loving hands on February 21, 2007.  She showed great strength and fortitude as she heroically held on through a 10 month battle before succumbing to complications from a massive stroke.  Her faith remained eternal throughout.  We rejoice that she is now with Jesus.  She will be remembered for her incredibly strong faith, loving and selfless ways and her beautiful brown eyes and warm smile.  Most of all, her love, compassion and guidance as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend.

 

She is preceded in death by her parents, Joseph Albert and Cora May Bell Devotie.  She leaves behind her husband of 51 years, John �J.W.� Currie, three loving daughters, Emma Johnson and husband Frank; Mary Ann Jackson and husband, Robert; and Carol Currie; nine grandchildren: Julie and Chip, Lisa, Kevin and Danielle, Amanda, Renni, Trenton and Amy.  She is also survived by two great-grandchildren, Devin and Marissa; and a lifelong friend, Ercilia Kalsnes.

 

Special thanks for her care by her nursing staff at The Heritage Retirement Community in Tomball, Texas and Lighthouse Hospice.

 

Visitation will begin at 2:00 PM until on Sunday, February 25, 2007 at Malloy & Son Funeral Home in Galveston.  A rosary will be held at 3:30 PM.
