When I was touring assisted living homes looking for my mom, I saw Muriel and knew that it would be the right choice. She was my first grade teacher (and I’m 57 now) and one of my favorites. She was like an angel sent down to watch over my mom. It was so special having my husband and daughter meet her and getting to know her when we would visit mom. We loved getting the Curry hugs from her. She loved telling the story of Paul encouraging her to go to school to become a teacher and I’m so glad she did as she touched so many lives. We’re happy that she can be with Paul but she will be missed here. We all loved “Mrs. Curry”❤️

Mrs. Curry was an amazing person and an exemplary teacher. Her eyes were truly mirrors of her soul as they showed her deep love and respect as well as her deep sympathy for those who were struggling or suffering. She was kind and caring toward everyone. The world would be a better place with more people like her. My children were beneficiaries of all her goodness and I remain grateful for their experiences in her first grade classroom. She was much loved and will be missed by many. My deepest sympathy to her family.

I first met Muriel Curry when my youngest daughter was in first grade at Wilson School. (Cathy is now 55). Later we became friends thru ladies circle at First Baptist Church. She was a great help for the many bazaars over the years. In 2002 we became "across the street neighbors" and watched one another's houses when we were away. We gracefully "aged" together as we did women's work in the church and saw her family come and go. She was such an influence for me and a mentor in so many ways. When we were in OH went to see her at the beautiful place she lived and she still missed her Paul so much! Always loved that lady and she will be part of who we are forever.

Muriel was a favorite of mine..... a wonderful teacher to my children, a wonderful co-worker, and just a beautiful lady.... with a beautiful spirit. I will not be back in town for her visitation but I will always have fond memories of our friendship. God bless and may all of you be comforted with His love.

My family and I got to know Muriel in the past few months. She loved to talk about teaching her 1st graders (as I am an elementary teacher too) and she loved seeing my daughter, Josie, each week. Josie always looked forward to seeing Muriel in the dining room or in the lobby on each visit to see my parents. She gave the best hugs and is missed!

I had Mrs. Curry during her last year of teaching at Wilson School. In fact, she resigned halfway through the year. I cannot say enough about her enthusiasm and kindness. She had such a way with us and really helped me fall in love with school (which as an early childhood educator myself, I believe is SO important). I know she meant the world to many, many students over the years! She will be missed!

The night of November 29th..I was visiting my mom at the location Muriel lived. I first met her last year. She and my mom..Marge..became good friends...and Muriel talked to me about her years as a teacher( I am one as well) and her life.

We played bingo on Friday night...Muriel won the last round I believe. She could not decide on a prize...and said she would decide later on. I was informed of her passing the next day.

Her prize is life in a world more real than this one. No more walker..no more pills. But yes..Bingo...and the love of others.

Thank you Muriel...for you may think my mom helped you...but by allowing her to do so..you helped her..and me..more than you can know.
