In loving memory of Betty Jean Curry 

    Betty Jean Curry 88 years old, died Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 8:00 am at her residence, where she was living with her son in Indianapolis.
    She fought a long hard fight to raise eight children after her husband departed October 12, 1969, forty nine years earlier. She kept the children together and help everyone succeed to their present status.
    She had to work for a few years at Preferred Tomatoes on Shelby Street in Indianapolis until she became eligible to draw Social Security. Many days she walked to work, because she never drove a car or obtained an operators license. Later in the evenings her feet were often raw and swollen and quite often there were many times she was in extreme pain. But she never let that deter her from surviving and getting up to go back to work the next day.
    She was preceded in death by her husband Raymond Curry. She is survived by eight children, Raymond, Gloria, Jimmy, Larry, Nancy, Dennis, Edward and Shannon.
    She discovered that she had cancer earlier this year and fought that battle as bravely as she face uncertainty after the death of her husband, until she lost that final battle. Ironically cancer claimed not just her husband forty nine years earlier, but also became the means of which took her life. 
    Betty Curry was a wife forever to one man only. She remained faithful for forty nine years after the passing of her husband. She never remarried, dated or accepted suitors, instead she remained true to her first and only true love Raymond Curry for the forty nine years after his death of cancer.
    She had developed a necessary hard streak of which became the nucleolus of her will to raise her children that she had been left with, following her husbands untimely death. That strong will developed into one of the most wonderful mothers every known. She was without a doubt a mother who loved everyone of her children and never once strayed from the responsibilities of raising her children.
    She will rest beside her beloved husband Raymond in New Crown Cemetery 2101 Churchman Ave, Indianapolis.
    She will be a beacon of inspiration for her children, grand-children and great-grand-children for many years to come.
    The best way to describe her devotion to Raymond Curry her one-and-only love is in this short saying.

True love never dies.

    When two people fall in love,
they stay in love forever.
    When one departs the other
waits to be together again.
