Charlotte A. Curran
Oct. 16, 1925 - March 7, 2010
SOUTH BEND - 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 longtime 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 Mary 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 longtime 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 Bunch." Charlotte was a longtime 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 the 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 décor 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. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, March 10, 2010, at St. Pius X Catholic Church, 52553 Fir Road, South Bend. Burial will follow at Highland Cemetery, South Bend. Friends may visit with the family from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. today, March 9, 2010, in the Palmer Funeral Home - Hickey Chapel, 17131 Cleveland Road, South Bend, and one hour prior to Mass on Wednesday in church. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy on behalf of Charlotte may be made to the American Diabetes Association , 6910 North Main Street, Granger, IN 46530; or to Catholic Masses of the donor's choice. Online condolences may be sent to the Curran family at www.palmerfuneralhomes.com.
