Lois Curry

January 25, 1929 — January 16, 2021

Lois Justis Curry, 91, longtime Mooresville resident, passed away January 16, 2021. Lois was born January 25, 1929, in Bloomington, to the late Wilson Raymond and Wilma Inez (Benson) Justis.

She graduated from Ellettsville High School. Lois married William R. Curry and caringly raised three sons, Terry, Jay, and Jim, and was a proud supporter during her husband’s educational career in several Indiana communities, culminating as Superintendent of Schools at Mooresville. She was a devoted member of the First United Methodist Church, where she sang in the choir for years. She enjoyed traveling, attending Broadway musicals, and was an enthusiastic spectator at her sons’ many sporting events through the years. Lois will be fondly remembered by all for her sweet and compassionate manner. She loved unconditionally and had a special ability to make you feel better after having been in her company.

Born in 1929, Lois grew up during the Depression and World War II. When her father Willie could not find work at home, he took a job in 1940 on construction of powder plant in Charlestown, Indiana. In order to keep the family together, he bought an old-fashioned school bus, parked it next to a truck bed, and fashioned living quarters for the family. Having lived through those modest circumstances, Lois cherished family and appreciated the many blessings we enjoy.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, William R. Curry; brother, Richard Justis; sister, June Kinser.

Survivors include her sons, Terry (Anne), Jay (Diane), and Jim (Donna); sisters, Phyllis (the late Fred DeFord) and Jane (Stewart) Spencer; grandchildren, Melissa (Scott) Coxey, Amanda (David) Brown, and Brian Curry; and great grandchildren, Evelyn and William Coxey.
