Cinda Lou Curry
Cinda Lou Curry, 67, a resident of Matlacha, FL since 2013, formerly of Elizabethtown, KY, and Bowie, MD, passed away Sunday, November 29, 2020 in Cape Coral, FL. She was born August 12, 1953 in Belleville, IL.
Cinda was a veteran of the United States Navy, where she served as a Photographer’s Mate. An avid gardener, she learned from books, trial and error, and other gardeners. Her skills were those of a master gardener, and she did all of the work herself. When she wanted a Koi pond, she grabbed a pickaxe and shovel, and dug it by hand. Folks would come from all over to see her work, as she transformed three different yards into neighborhood showcases. Her cooking skills matched those of her gardening, and her multi-course meals rivaled those of a four star restaurant, with everything made from scratch. She did not do anything half-way. But her greatest gift was her open, friendly personality. Everybody loved her, and there was nothing she would not do for the people she cared about.
She is survived by her beloved husband, Conrad Curry of Matlacha; loving mother, Kathryn Shriner of Cape Coral; two loving children, Michelle Newlon of Cape Coral, and Christopher Curry (Beth) of Elizabethtown, KY; as well as four grandchildren, Xander Martin, Jake Newlon, Devin Curry, and Cohen Curry.
Cinda was preceded in death by her father, Richard Shriner.
Private family services will be held.
Memorial Contributions in memory of Cinda Lou Curry are suggested to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
