She married Larry Jay McCurdy on August 11, 1961 in North Carolina but married again a few weeks later in Adamsville, Pennsylvania.
She was a housewife for many years.
She loved reading, sewing and crocheting.
She and Larry had taken in many foster children and also neighborhood kids when needed. If there was a lost soul at Larry’s work, he would bring him home for supper.
