Lois G. McCluskey Curran left us for her heavenly home on September 19, 2014, with her loving family by her side. Lois had 93 wonderful years, and retained her great attitude and sense of humor until the end.
She was born August 8, 1921, to Art and Hazel Gravenstein of Grundy Center, IA, and had the good fortune to live in many places and touch many lives. She greatly enjoyed her golden years in Venice, Florida. Lois never met a stranger, and made many lifelong friends wherever she was. After working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington, D.C., she married John McCluskey, raising a son and daughter, Kathy and Mike. John succumbed to cancer at age 69, and she was fortunate to find a second love in Henry Curran, a longtime family friend. They enjoyed life together for the last 14 years of her life. Lois is survived by her husband, Henry Curran, son, Michael McCluskey, daughter-in-law Deborah, three grandchildren, Katherine Knabel, Megan Mulder, and Mark Harvey, and three great-grandchildren, Emma and Sadie Mulder, and Kayla Harvey. We will all miss her every day.
Lois was preceded in death by her daughter, Kathleen Harvey, and her husband, John McCluskey. Lois will rest in peace in Grundy Center, IA, with a private family service. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in her name to the Macular Degeneration Research Foundation, 22512 Gateway Center Drive, Clarksburg, MD, 20871, and the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 11454, Alexandria, VA 22312.
