Obituary
Genevieve M. "Jen" Currie, 84, of Fort Gratiot, died Saturday, August 11, 2012.

She was born June 2, 1928 in Detroit and moved to Capac as a young girl. She married Walter "Bud" Currie on August 24, 1946 in Capac. He died April 14, 1979.

Mrs. Currie owned and operated Currie Jewelers with her family for many years prior to her retirement. She was a sweet, gentle soul who enjoyed rescuing animals, working in the garden, feeding the birds, baking, and babysitting the grandchildren and for Julia. The Manor Neighborhood, where she lived for many happy years, called her the Cupcake Lady and she lived up to that title to the delight of the children there. She baked hundreds of cookies for The Harbor Open Houses and for the Christmas Season at Currie Jewelers for all of the customers to enjoy.

She is survived by five children, Nikki Carse, Dean (Judy) Currie, Sally Currie, Rick Currie and Jeanne (John) Telfer; five grandchildren, Lori, Deena and Jennifer Currie, Ammie Winstone and Jamie Currie and Renee Wulff and John Telfer; six great grandchildren; and a sister, Lucille Conan-Thompson. The love and joy Jen had for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren was boundless and unconditional. Her dear friends, Dick and Sue Davies enriched her life immensely. She was preceded in death by a daughter, Linda Lee.

Visitation will be noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 25, 2012 in Pollock-Randall Funeral Home followed by a memorial service at 2 p.m. The Reverend Mitch Olson of Grace Ministries will officiate.

Memorial contributions may be made to The Harbor Shelter for Runaway and Homeless Youth or to the Animal Hospital of Lakeport for animal rescue.
