March 14, 1945 to Feb 14, 2020 ~ Unexpectedly, on Friday, February 14, 2020, our mother passed away quietly with dignity, surrounded by the love of her family.
Beloved wife of the late William Currie. Her children, Kimberley Kienhofer (Michael), Douglas (Joanne), Curtis (Karen) and Christopher (Vanessa) are left heartbroken. Very special Grandma to all of her grandchildren, Jan, David, Paul, Greggory, Brett, Robyn, Megan, Jadyn, Melanie, Alyssa, Caitlynne and Cassandra. Great Grandma Faith of Cody, Trixie and Ellie and Bryce. She loved you all so very much. Daughter of the late Harold and Kathleen Oliver (nee Curtis). Loving sister of Sharon Hill (late Gerry), late Maureen Pyke, late Curtis Oliver, David Oliver (Natasha), Susan Lampi (late Gary), Ann Finn (Michael), Mark Oliver (Heather), Michael Oliver (Tina), late Jonathon Oliver and Evan Zappacosta.
Mom knew her time was short but that never stopped her from doing the things she enjoyed with the family and friends that she loved so very much. Mom took great interest in family history and traditions. She was strong in her faith and convictions and raised us to know the same. “You work hard for what you want, speak truth and from the heart, love unconditional, and remember the joy in simple things.” Coffee was always on, Mom’s door was always open and everyone was always welcome.
