     SELKIRKóWilma E. French Currey, 94, passed away peacefully at home on April 9, 2021 with her loving family by her side. Wilma was born in Lawrenceville, Illinois, daughter of the late Hillis and Gladys French.

            Wilma met the love of her life, Francis S. Currey, in 1947 and married on January 15, 1949. She moved to Selkirk, raised a family and would later spend her winters in their Bonneau, South Carolina home. Wilma enjoyed the summers at Camp Woodstock walking around the lake, playing cards, watching the grandchildren fish, reading and watching the Golden Girls. They enjoyed doing everything together, but her proudest moments were celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary in 2019 and being with her family. She enjoyed many world travels with her husband, as he was a Medal of Honor recipient. Wilma more recently loved the many visits from her great grandchildren. You could see her face light up when they would come visit.

            Wilma is survived by her children, Michael (Anne) Currey, Kathryn (Thomas) Domery Jr., and Jonathan (Lorri Ducharme) Currey; grandchildren, Jessica (Michael) Moran, Kyleen (Scott) Dambrosio, Diane (Jesse) Lammers, James (Tammy) Currey, Christopher (Juli) Currey, Kevin Currey, and Travis Currey; 13 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews. Wilma was predeceased by her beloved husband Francis S. Currey; and 5 siblings.
