Lois Joanne Curro

Curro, Lois Joanne (Nee Gaetz) Born to Life August 15, 1926. Entered Eternal Life Saturday, November 10, 2012. Preceded in death by her beloved grandparents John and Sofie Stone, parents John and Inga Gaetz, sister Eunice Sorenson, little cat Ebby, and partner-in-crime Betty Vogel. Lois is survived by her children Richard, Cynthia, Paulette (Michael), Jon (Angela), and daughter-in-law Sally; grandchildren Tina (Jeremy), Nick, Nate, Vince, Sam, Jason (Jessi), Flannery, Antonio (Lesley), Kelly, Alexandra (Brian), Arianna (Kevin); great-grandchildren Luis, Jacob, Max, Allie, Maddie, Nick, Myles, Chloe, Joey, Brhianna, Gabriella, Nicholas, Matthew; brother John (Gertrude); cousins Shirley (Donald) and Joe (Dorothy); nieces, nephews, friends and additional special loved ones. Fondly remembered as a highly spirited soul, determined to do things on her own, with a spunky wit and bit of mystery, Lois weathered life's challenges bravely and with true grit. Her passion and joys included her delightfully feisty family and friends, loving pets, visiting her much loved family in Washburn, and membership in the Lois Club, VFW Auxiliary 726, and Atonement Lutheran Church. She left this world in peace and dignity, surrounded by loved ones. A special thanks to the staff at Luther Manor for their loving and dedicated care of Lois the past four years. You helped make her life whole. Visitation at the HARDER FUNERAL HOME on Tuesday, November 20, 2012, from 3:30 PM to 5:45 PM, with Funeral Service at 6:00 PM. A private family burial will be held in Washburn, WI.
