Annamae Curry, 77, of Pasadena, MD was born on Valentines Day and went to be with her savior Jesus Christ and heavenly Father God on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020 after suffering an illness. Her love of family and unwavering faith and belief in God has always supported her and ultimately gave her peace. Annamae was not afraid to go to the light and wanted her life celebrated.
Annamae was born to the late Anna “Anne” and Thomas “Bo” Bowen of Powhatan Beach, originally Baltimore, MD; sister to the late Thomas Bowen, Sr. and sister-in-law to the late Doris Bowen of Pasadena, MD.
Annamae is survived by her husband of 60 years Thomas Curry Sr.; their four children Thomas Curry Jr., Nancy Curry, Michael Curry, and Anna “Little Annamae” Curry; brother-in-law Edward Curry and his wife Sondra; loving grandmother to her grandchildren Bridget McSwain Trevillian and her husband Rob, Jenna Curry Flynn and her husband Kevin, Storm Curry and Thomas Jonathan “TJ” Curry; Annamae was blessed with her great-grandchildren Robby Trevillian, Gavin Trevillian, Lucas Trevillian, Alex Trevillian; Julia Curry Flynn and Esme’ Curry Flynn. She is also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends all of whom she loved very much.
Annamae and Thomas were longtime members of Faith Baptist Church located at 7378 E Furnace Branch Road, Glen Burnie, MD. Wednesday night church dinners were very much remembered by several members of the family with delicious delight.
Annamae was a very kind, generous and loving women with a cosmic heart. She would give to strangers when she had little to give never expecting anything in return. She was independent and determined to never allow anything to stand in the way of her goals and dreams. She told her children often how proud she is of all her children and family and how much she loves them.
Annamae had an amazing sense of humor and was a huge animal lover. She would care for neighborhood animals that ran free by taking them to the vet when their owners had financial difficulties to ensure their health and shots were up-to-day as well as being neutered or spayed. She had the eyes of a hawk and would stop the car suddenly to move a turtle to the other side of the road so they safely made it to their destination. She would pick up an injured or baby bird, wrap them in a napkin and place them in her bosom to keep them safe and warm until she could nurse them back to health. She had many canine companions growing up to include Gracie (deceased) her dachshund, Sarge (deceased) the black and tan german shepherd, Pierre (deceased) the white poodle, and Sarge II (deceased) the black and tan german shepherd whose ashes will be buried with her. Annamae is survived by Rebel her African Grey given to a family in need who lost their African Grey and their Mccall bird was in great mourning refusing food and water until Rebel arrived to give him back a best friend that made him sing again. She is also survived by her grand “fur” babies Kato the shar-pei, Puma the springer-spaniel border collie mix, Boo and Bear the dachshunds and great grand “fur” babies Mr. Bo Jangles (deceased) the basset hound/lab mix, Lady and Murphy the black and tan german shepherds, Doc the basset hound, Kavanagh “fat man” the labrador, and Zelda, Peach and Daisy the golden retrievers.
Annamae like her mother, father and brother had a green thumb and could make anything grow and bring anything back to life by just looking at it. She had a basement of hanging plants as far as the eye could see. Annamae would take clippings from these hanging plants and put them in cups to sell at school or Havenwood softball fundraisers. She would have a table full of little starter plants selling for .50 cents and each time every one would sell. She would also paint rocks to be pet rocks and place them in her gardens.
