On the afternoon of Monday, October 18, 2021, Doris Causby McCurry, age 76, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away at her residence.

She was born in McDowell County on September 27, 1945, to the late Jack Causby and Pauline Krause Causby.

She was a devout Christian and was a member of St. Mark's United Methodist Church, where she served faithfully over the years. Doris was an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves, and she was a very active member of the Lion's Club.

Those left to cherish her precious memory are her daughter, Jennifer McCurry Young and husband, Michael; two grandchildren, Michael Edwin Young III "Three" and Cameran Reece Young; her brother, Ronald Jack Causby "Boo"; and special cousins who were like sisters, Loretta Young, Lib Brown, and Hazel McNeeley.
