Marcia E. Curry, 81
SAUGUS — Formerly of Marblehead and Lynn, Marcia E. (Mudge) Curry, age 81, beloved wife of John A. Curry of Saugus, died peacefully at the Massachusetts General Hospital surrounded by her family.
Marcia is survived by her two sons, Robert Curry of Danvers, Timothy Curry and his wife Susan of Saugus, and her daughter Susan Brown of Saugus. Also survived by six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Born in Marblehead, Marcia graduated from Lynn English High School, Class of 1954. Upon graduation, she was employed at Mass General Hospital as an administrator in the welfare department. She was deeply involved in the social life of Northeastern University, where her husband served as President. So much so, that when her husband retired the Board of Trustees voted to name the new student center in her name as well as his. Marcia was actively involved with the Cliftondale Congregational Church in Saugus, serving as a member of the Board of Deacons and the Church’s social clubs. She enjoyed playing the organ and was proud to be one of Lynn’s first woman basketball players in the early ’50s.
