Date of Death: October 05, 2021
Former nurse, loving mom and beloved friend Lawannah Ann Curry's youthful spirit blazes beyond her time here on Earth. Lawannah entered eternal rest on October 5th, at the age of 73, after an acute illness. Lawannah will be lovingly remembered by her son, Chad Curry, sister, Mary Luke, Brother-in-Law Robin Luke, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her adoptive parents, Emile and Eleene Chevreaux. For the family, friends and acquaintances she leaves behind, Lawannah needs no introduction. Lawannah lit up every room with her charisma, charm, passion and drive for life. Born in Sullivan, Missouri and raised in Sedona, Arizona, Lawannah was always ready to enjoy a walk outdoors...and willing to beat you at tennis. She shined most when she acted in community theater and performed in roles for commercials, television and movies: she swore that one day, she'd be on the red carpet. Lawannah was a survivor. Adopted at a young age and moved across the country, it was Lawannah's resilience that encourages her megawatt smile to shine, even when things got tough. She attended Flagstaff Highschool and Good Samaritan Hospital of Nursing, both with older sister, Mary. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was just another hurdle, and she focused on her health and her Christian faith to see her through to remsission. Any friend of Lawannah's knew how much she loved her son, Chad. Lawannah was an adoring mother, and was so proud and supportive of any journey Chad undertook (and she was happy to tell anyone about him). She saw motherhood as one of her greatest accomplishments. She was also a cherished aunt and great-aunt. Even though she was geographically separated from her many members of her family, she closed the distance with frequent handwritten letters, emails, and social media posts. Lawannah's family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at the Abrazo Hospital, Scottsdale campus, for their compassion with her care, and for Sherman House Hospice.
