Ida May Ellis was born at Brownsville, Nebraska, on April 1, 1867. She moved to Kansas while still a small girl, and spent her early life near Eureka. She taught school for one year at District 94, now known as the Seeley School, southwest of Madison.
On January 28, 1886, she was married to Daniel J.(Jarvis) Curry. They immediately bought and settled upon a farm along Willow Creek, seven miles southwest of Madison, and here she spent the remaining 57 years of her life. She passed away in her own home.
She was the mother of eight children, four of whom have preceded her in death. The four remaining children are: Mrs. Nellie Uhl, Ralph Curry, and Miss Daisy Curry, of Madison, and George Curry of White River, South Dakota. Her husband died in 1933.
In her childhood, Mrs. Curry united with the Methodist Church. In recent years she has been a faithful attendant and loyal devoted worker in the Christina Church of Madison.
Besides her children, Mrs. Curry leaves ten grandchildren, a half sister, Mrs. David Carson of Kansas City, and a number of nieces, nephews and other relatives.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Madison Christian Church. Rev. S. H. Barley, pastor of the church, conducted the services. Mrs. Barley sang, "Rock of Ages" and "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere," accompanied by Miss Pearl Brumba.
