Lillian Lexie Ash Curry, 98, of Bridgeport, WV passed away at her home
on July 30, 2020 surrounded by her family.
She was born in Ashley, WV on October 30, 1921, a daughter of the late
Guy B. and Belle Stackpole Ash.
Lillian graduated from Roosevelt Wilson High School in 1939 and was
the last surviving member of her class. On September 20, 1946, she
married James R. Curry. They were married for 68 years until his
passing on December 10, 2014.
Following graduation, Lillian was employed as a secretary for
Metropolitan Life, where she met her husband, and later worked for
Westinghouse and Rish Equipment. After staying home to care for her
children, she returned to work, finding employment in the offices of
Roland Glass and McNicol China. She also colored sepia photographs for
Ideal-Sayre Studios before the widespread use of color photography.
Surviving her are one son, Michael Curry of Bridgeport; one daughter,
Amy Diane Hayden of Bridgeport; four grandchildren, Ryan Curry and
wife Sharon, Jennifer Conroy and husband Daniel, Spencer Hayden, and
Crystal McCloy and husband Christopher; five great-grandchildren,
Justin Curry, Molly Conroy, Macie Conroy, Kendall McCloy, and Alanna
McCloy; and one brother, Loren Ash.
In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by
one brother, Rayph “Jack” Ash.
Lillian was highly devoted to her family; her kindness, warm hugs, and
hearty laughter will be greatly missed. She was known to be a
wonderful cook. There was always room for guests at the dinner table,
and no one ever left hungry. An accomplished artist, she gathered
regularly at the Harrison County Senior Citizens Center to paint with
her friends. Mrs. Curry was a member of the Bridgeport United
Methodist Church and a former member of the Chestnut Hills Garden
