Charlotte A. Curran

October 16, 1925 ~ March 7, 2010 (age 84)

Charlotte Curran, 84, passed away Sunday, March 7, 2010, at the Sanctuary
at Holy Cross with beloved friends, Betty Vascil, Patty and Karen Koellner and
her long time caregiver, Sharon Thomas, at her side.

Charlotte was born October 16, 1925 in Mishawaka, Indiana to Herman and
Mayme Henry. She was a South
Bend/Mishawaka resident all of her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents.

On May 4, 1946, Charlotte was united in Holy Matrimony with Herbert
Curran at Christ the King Catholic Church.

Bonded by a committed lifetime of friendship and devoted love,
Charlotte and Herb shared a passionate journey of first class pleasures from
their active membership in Knights of Columbus #553; as avid supporters of all
Notre Dame sports and long-time seasonal ticket holders of Notre Dame football,
who relished tailgating with countless friends with an Irish salute or two;
were die-hard Chicago Cubs fans win or lose; and traveled extensively with
their close friends, Steve and Betty Lisek.

Her beloved husband, Herb, passed away on September 29, 1993.

Charlotte is survived by her brothers-in-law, Dick (Dorothy) Curran of
Kokomo, IN and Robert (Barbara) Curran of South Bend, IN; sister-in-law, Ginny
Lockmondy of South Bend, IN; and cousin, Denise (Ralph) Dabrowiak of South
Bend, IN.

Charlotte was a 1943 graduate of Riley High School, where she played
violin in band and orchestra. She was a
loyal "Wildcat" sports fan and a regular monthly attendee of the "Riley Lunch

Charlotte was a long-time insurance associate of the former
Taylor-Moyer Insurance Agency in South Bend.

A devout Roman Catholic member of Christ the King Catholic Church, and
in later years St. Pius X Catholic Church, she was a member of Christ Child
Society. An avid reader of books and
newspapers, Charlotte had a keen interest in civic and national politics and
enjoyed debating political issues of the day.

A weekly bridge/euchre card player, she was fiercely competitive while
enjoying a fine glass of wine and being the consummate hostess.

Fridays, until recently, were reserved from mid-morning until well into
the evening with her lifelong friends Doris Paturalski, Marlene Kachur, and
Sharon Thomas for a day of culinary dining pleasures and shopping to add to her
exquisite home decor and personal wardrobe par excellence.

Charlotte took great pride in her home, and with the immaculate attention
to detail by her longtime friend Connie Hess, an interior design/stylist, every
holiday of each season was a warm inspiration in her home.

Our heartfelt thanks go to all of the staff members of the Sanctuary at
Holy Cross for their devoted service and care, and to Dr. Robert King, her
trusted physician.
