Lynn Curry Kumar was working as a medical assistant when I first started working at the Standard Ave office of Healthcare of Louisville in 1978. She was Dr. Robert Cox’s assistant at the time and when he retired about 1990 she worked with me until we moved to the Humana office behind Kroger on 26th St. She was dedicated, intelligent, and the patients all loved her. She was also known never to kill any insects, but would pick them up and take them outside. She also told tales of her many cats. I saw Lynn occasionally when she was working at the Speed Art Museum, and she seemed to enjoy that experience as well.
I had the good fortune to take care of her brother, Larry Curry, as well and we enjoyed talking about tall ships especially the Rose. As a retiree from the Civil Engineers he enjoyed drawing ships and other things nautical. Through him I had glimpses of Lynn from time to time. Larry, unfortunately, died prematurely in December 2017.
Dr. Cox passed away a few months ago and in looking through some old photos of the Standard Ave group to give his son, Paul, I found the one I’m posting which I took in 1981. Lynn is kneeling down just behind the table to right of center and Dr. Cox is the doc far to right. A couple of the other assistants who knew Lynn well are still working in our office. We all have fond memories of her and share with the family our sadness that she is departed from this visible world.

Lynn Curry Kumar was my aunt, the dear sister of my father Laurence Curry Jr who passed away in December 2017. Lynn was the daughter of Laurence Curry Sr and Frances Stoll Curry of Louisville. She was preceded in death by her husband Devendra Kumar. I didn’t get to know my aunt Lynn and her children, my four cousins, Jaime Kumar (Debra), Nimmi Kumar Wiggins, Sanjay Kumar, and David Kumar (Carole), as a child because she married and moved to India before I was born. But she returned in the 1970’s when I was in high school and she was a new person in my life! After that, I’ve had the wonderful friendships with my cousins who followed here after her, to whom she has always been deeply devoted. They have been her greatest joy. I’ll never forget how she has always spoken of her life as a great adventure.

Lynn was born 8 days before I was. I called her my twin cousin. We didn't see one another often, but Christmas at Grandpa Curry's was a very special time. All the aunts, uncles, and cousins came together for Christmas. The aunts and my mother baked cookies for weeks in preparation. The cousins ate downstairs at a long table. Food was always ham and potato salad as well as other dishes. Afterwards, we went outside and sang carols.

Lynn was so pretty and smart while I was a tomboy. I admired her so. She was so poised and gracious...always a lady.

I'll always remember her with love and admiration.
