Mrs. Currie was a devout Catholic and longtime member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Centralia, where she nurtured her strong faith. She loved to learn and was a proud graduate of Centralia High School, participating in Wiz Kids and excelling in Math. She went on to earn her certificate in Psychology. Dimple was a military wife who traveled with her husband, Glenzo while he served in the United States Air Force. They were stationed throughout Europe, even living in Germany for a time. Dimple had a gift for caring for little ones, working at a Daycare Center while living overseas. She later was a loyal employee of Kass Potato Chips and JC Penny both of Centralia. Dimple was the glue that held her family together and she was an amazing mother. She gave her heart and soul to provide support for her husband and children, giving them a warm, comfortable, loving environment to grow in. Everyone complimented Dimple’s beautiful handwriting and marveled at her passion for reading numerous books each year. She had a green thumb and she and her husband, Glenzo worked as the perfect team to bring bountiful vegetable gardens to life. Dimple held a special place in her heart for her precious grandchildren. They could always bring a smile to her face, and she never missed an opportunity to shower them with love. Dimple’s family will hold treasured memories of her wonderful life and share the stories of her love for generations to come.
