It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Connie ‘Ma’ Currie on Friday, June 29, 2012, at the Glace Bay Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of the late Harry and Winnie Murphy.
Connie enjoyed spending quality time with her family sitting around the dining room table as well as her long drives with her best friend/sister-in-law, Joan. Connie resided on Third Street most of her life and was known as ‘Ma’ to many.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Naish, daughter, Florence, brother, Donnie, sister, Margie, sister-in-law, Ralphie and nephew, Little Don.
