Curenton; her daughter, Georgie Debra Curenton; grandson, Richard “Ricky” Thomas Frazier, II; and siblings, Mildred, Pauline, Robert and Virgil.
Jenny left school and went to work at Gifford’s Restaurant in Enterprise where she eventually met and married George Alton Curenton of Coffee Springs, AL upon his return from military service in WWII. After raising their family she returned to school and earned her GED. During their 67 years together they partnered in the life and travels (adventures) of a military family.
She is survived by her daughters, Virginia Ann Frazier (Richard), Betty Sue Harwell, Hilda Jane Hawkins (Mike), Irma Lanette Rydel (John) and Brenda Kay Curenton; 15 grandchildren; 52 great-grandchildren; 7 great-great grandchildren; siblings, Cecil Counts (Dee), Jerry Counts and Nell Jean Counts Murphy (William); and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to express deepest gratitude for all our family, friends and neighbors for so much love and care making Jenny’s life and Earthly departure richer. May our Lord bless each and every one with his peace and salvation.
