Mamie Evelyn Curran, 93, made her trip to heaven Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at The Retreat at Fishersville.
Mamie was born on September 10, 1929 in Richmond to the late Alfred Gulley and Eliza Bernice Duke Curran.
She was a graduate of Saluda High School in 1946 where she was actively involved with the yearbook and student council. In 1948, she received an Executive Secretary Diploma from the College of Hampton Roads.
She started her career at the Life of Virginia, in Richmond and held many office positions throughout her life. She retired as an administrative assistant for the Valley ASAP in Staunton.
After retirement she enjoyed volunteering, traveling, working in her yard, and spending time with family. She always had a smile on her face and never met a stranger.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Hugh Olson Curran, and the father of her children, Paul F. Cecchini.
