Theresa Maria (Meehan) Currie

June 17, 1954 ~ December 24, 2019 (age 65)


Early on the morning of December 24, 2019, Theresa Maria Currie departed her

earthly life for a greater reward in heaven with our Lord. She was born in

Washington D.C. at Walter Reed Army Medical Center to Francis and Maria

Meehan. The Army kept them traveling in her early childhood until they landed in

Augusta, Georgia. It was in Augusta that she met the love of her life, Marshall

Dean Currie (aka Deadeye). They married quickly and started a family. She had a

deep and abiding love for family, and nothing made her smile more than spending

time with them. She was arguably one of the best cooks around. When she

announced she was making pizza, everyone wanted a seat at the table, and it

gave her great joy to see that the fruits of her labor were well appreciated.

She loved with a quiet, unassuming love. It was not showy. There were no grand

gestures. But if she loved you, you knew it. She loved with a love that was more

than love

She was predeceased by her parents, Francis and Maria Meehan. Left to cherish

her memory, are her husband, Marshall; a daughter, Hope Purkey (Michael); two

sons, Frank and his fiancé Shena; and Nick Currie; a stepdaughter, Samantha

Coe; 6 grandchildren, (Joshua, Daniel, Jesse, Gatlin, Lucy-Maria and Kate); a

brother, Brian Meehan (Michele); a sister, Edie Meehan; two brothers in law, Chris

(Beth) and Gary; and numerous nieces and nephews who all loved her dearly, as

well as friends who became family, Cheray Newsome, a friend who became a

daughter, and several cousins and other extended family.

A celebration of life will be held at The Sanctuary Church at 4584 Cox Rd. Evans,

Georgia at 11 am, on Friday, January 3. In leu of flowers, the family requests that

you take a moment and breathe in all of life. Practice random acts of kindness.

Help the homeless. Donate to a food bank. Plant a tree. Flowers quickly fade

away, but to honor her memory in this way ensures that her legacy not only lives

on through her family, but that it creates a ripple effect which will make a

difference to so many lives.
