Obituary of Dorothy Curry
~~In Avalon, Texas on July 11, 1925 a little baby girl came into this world. Her parents were Sam Sneed and the former Annie Mae Louder. She did not know how many lives she would touch but, she touched more than she would know. Her name was Dorothy Mae Sneed.
Miss Sneed lived her early years between Avalon and Italy, Texas but moved to Dallas for her adult years. She lived with her aunt, Ardella Carter. Shortly thereafter, she met Robert E. Curry. The two married December 24, 1953. The two also became prominent members of the Good Street Baptist Church.
Mrs. Curry established herself as a Professional Domestic Servant. She worked in that position until her retirement in the late twentieth century.
God blessed Robert and Dorothy Curry with their only son, Myron, September 6, 1963. While she was active with her church, she became more active, working with the youth and various other auxiliaries.
ON August 12, 2015, Mrs. Curry lost her husband of sixty-two years, Robert. She chose to stay close to her home. In late first quarter 2017, Mrs. Curry developed an infection resulting from pressure points on her hip and heels. Treatment for the infection brought about her stay at Matlock Place Nursing Home in Arlington, Texas. The infection proved to be her greatest battle. The Lord relieved her of her agony, July 2, 2017; nine days shy of her ninety second birthday.
Dorothy Mae Sneed Curry leaves behind Myron and his wife Maudia and a host of relatives, friends and acquaintances.
