Kim Curry

May 28, 1961 — April 8, 2015

Kim (Covey) Curry, of Groesbeck, passed away Wednesday, April 8, 2015, at Providence Hospital in Waco, following a sudden illness, at the age of 53. A Memorial Service to celebrate Kim’s life will be held Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 6:00 P.M., at the First Baptist Church in Groesbeck. Reverend Tracy Sims and Todd Nicks will officiate. Kim was born on May 28, 1961 to Robert Lee Covey and Shirley Jean Miley Covey in Amarillo. She graduated from Trinity High School in Euless in 1979. She worked for Russell Grace Insurance Agency in Fort Worth, learning the insurance business on the job, and was an underwriter for commercial insurance lines. Kim met Clyff Curry through her friends and his brother, and they were married on August 31, 1985 in Arlington. Kim and Clyff moved to Waco in 1985 after their marriage, and she worked for National Lloyds Insurance there. For two years, the city girl was crying for home. Waco was small-town to her, with only one mall. Then in 1989, Kim and Clyff moved again to Groesbeck, which was another culture shock. However, she grew to love raising her family in a small town, and soon had no desire to move back to a city. She stayed in touch with her Mom and Dad, with the 7:00 phone call every night, and more often if she needed to talk over problems with her Dad and Mom. Kim worked at the old Family Medicine Center in Groesbeck from 1991, and then went to work in 1995 for Dr. Rettig’s Family Health Care, as office manager. She loved the patients she worked with. Kim loved her children and grandchildren and all their friends. She was very involved in all her children and grandchildren’s sports and school activities, attending every event. Kim had an open heart, willing to help anyone in need if she could, and was willing to take in stray kids in her home, and even stray dogs. After the kids were grown, Kim and Clyff loved going to Winstar in Oklahoma and frequent trips to any casino, although Clyff was the lucky one. Kim is survived by her husband, Clyff Howard Curry of Groesbeck; daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Kendall Funderburk of Kosse; son and daughter-in-law, Charles Curry and Tori O’Neal of Coit; granddaughters, Jaci Costilla of Kosse and Kenlee Funderburk of Kosse; her father and mother, Robert and Shirley Covey of Bedford; brother and sister-in-law, Darrell Lee and Terri Covey of Bedford; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Charles and Phyllis Smith of Haltom City; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Katilou and Donald Helms of Eddy; brother-in-law, Jack Marshall of Kerens; uncle and aunt, Jerry and Margaret Covey of Amarillo. Nephews and nieces include: Jordan Covey and Dulce Pina, Clayton and Christy Covey, and great nephews and great nieces, Carson Covey, Violet Covey, and Christian Covey (all of Bedford); nephew, Bobby Smith of Haltom City; nieces, Arianne Helms and Seren Helms of Eddy; niece, Tammy Bobbitt and husband Terry Bobbitt of Kerens; as well as numerous great nieces and great nephews, and cousins in Amarillo and California, and many other extended family.
