Janet Marie (Blades) Curley, 52 years old, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, August 8, 2019 surrounded by her family at Mass General Hospital.

Janet was born in the Bronx, NY on July 13, 1967, to her parents Donald P. and Virginia S. (Coyle) Curley. As a young teenager Janet and her family moved to Cape Cod, where Janet resided to this day with her son, James Blades, the light of her life. Janet lived life to the fullest with her generous personality, quick sense of humor, beautiful smile, and contagious laugh. Janet’s most precious thing in life was her family. Janet is survived and will be missed tremendously by her parents and son, her sister Patricia Curley, her brother James Curley, and his wife Jan Curley. Additionally, her nieces and nephews: Laura and her fiancé Scott, Donna and her husband Collin, Ryan, Finn, and her grand-niece Cora. Some of Janet’s most joyous moments were those spent with her nieces and nephews. Everyone who knew Janet was the better for it. Janet was a devoted friend, beloved daughter, sister, and aunt, but her proudest title was mother to her son.

I don’t know where to begin, Janet was a sister to me there’s not many memory in my life that she’s not a part of. I am so fortunate to have had her in my life and right now I share in your unmeasurable grief. This world was a better place because of janet, she loved unconditionally and gave from her heart. She lit up a room with her smile and she found a love she never knew when James entered her life . I can hear her saying very clearly don’t worry about me Cath I’m fine ,just be there for James.
I am sending all my love and my prayers to all the Curley family . I know Janet will never be far.

Janet was the kindest most considerate person I have ever met, she tried to help everyone she could even when you didn’t deserve it. She will leave an empty place in my heart. Rest In Peace my friend and know I will never forget you. My prayers go out to James and Janet’s family.
