OBITUARY: Newspaper - Providence Journal Enterprise, Thursday, April 24, 1952
Mrs. Roxana (Annie) DORRIS CURRY, 88, died Monday morning at her home on Tapp street when her clothing caught fire from an undetermined cause. Marvin MORSE saw smoke at 9 o'clock when he went in another part of the house to deliver ice to Mrs. Ella DAVIS, who was not at home. He had a neighbor, Mrs. Charlie BLACKWELL, call the fire department. When Mr. Blackwell went to investigate he found Mrs. Curry's body lying in the bedroom. The room was filled with smoke, and bedding, a bed post and part of the floor beneath the bed were burned. Mrs. CURRY's body, which had fallen away from the bed, was badly seared and most of her clothing was burned off. Verdict of an inquest conducted by Coroner J. Murray BLUE was that death was caused by suffocation. Coroner BLUE said that evidence led to the belief that Mrs. CURRY's clothing had caught fire when she started to light a kerosene stove in the kitchen and that she had gone to the bed in the next room in an attempt to extinguish the flames. Mrs. CURRY, a lifelong resident of Providence, was a daughter of the late Harriett WILSON and Elder Eleazar DORRIS, pioneer Providence residents. She taught school for a number of years in Providence and Webster county. She was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church. A brother, Edwin DORRIS, of Evansville survives. Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Primitive Baptist Church, with Elder J. D. SHAIN of Madisonville officiating, assisted by Elder Gordon HEARON of Clay. Burial was in Cullen Cemetery, near Providence.
