Doris Louise Curry, age 92, passed away on September 12, 2022, in Ogden, Utah. She was born in Scofield, Utah to Nita and Clifford Bailey and was raised in Clear Creek, Utah, where her father worked in the mines. She truly was a coal-miner’s daughter. She loved the beautiful quaking aspen and pine trees that surrounded her childhood home. While growing up, Louise learned the value of hard work from her parents. She graduated from Provo High School and worked at her father’s business, Bailey’s Moving and Storage. She went on to manage Quality Quick Print after moving to Ogden in 1975.
Louise had a gift of compassion and was a loving friend and caregiver throughout her life. She spent time as a victim’s advocate for the Weber County Attorney and the Weber-Morgan Children’s Justice Center. With her daughter Vickie, she volunteered at Ogden Regional Hospital and at the Salt Lake Airport as a therapy dog handler. Throughout her life, she served tirelessly in many leadership positions in her Latter-day Saint ward. She was also a service missionary in Ogden’s inner-city and volunteered in the Ogden Utah Temple.
Louise will be sorely missed by all who knew her. She will be remembered for her loving kindness, her famous chocolates, and her sense of humor (scaring the kids at Halloween by taking her teeth out and pulling a stocking over her face.) She was a devoted mother and a woman of determination. She was, for many years, the sole provider for her four children.
Louise is survived by her children, Deborah Gill (John) from her first husband, and Vickie King and Mike King (Bonnie) from her second husband. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Susie Bailey, son-in-law, Richard Taylor (Bonnie), eight grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, the Curry stepchildren and many nieces, nephews, and loving friends.
She was preceded in death by her daughter Wendy King Taylor, brother Jay Bailey and her sister/cousin, Gwila Nelson.
The family is grateful for the loving care given to Louise by her many friends, the staff at Mountain Ridge Assisted Living Center and Debbie Johnson from Inspiration Hospice Services.
In accordance with her wishes, a graveside service will be held for Louise at the Ben Lomond Cemetery 526 East 2850 North, North Ogden on Monday, September 19th at 11:00 am.
