BRADENTON, Fla. - Elizabeth Means Currie, 90, passed away peacefully on Dec. 16, 2017.
Ms. Currie was born on Jan. 31, 1927, to John Scott and Ida Means. She was raised on a farm in the beautiful Catskill Mountains.
She graduated from Keuka College in 1948, and went on to receive a master's degree in social work from Smith College, and a master's degree in business administration from State University of New York.
She had a successful career in social services, working in Delaware County child welfare and eventually the New York State Department of Social Services in Albany, until she retired in 1982.
She enjoyed her retirement by playing golf, piano, bridge, and, in her words, "finding an unexpected capacity for loafing."
She transitioned from a part-time Florida resident to full-time resident, when she moved to Pinebrook Ironwood Golf Club in 1989.
She is survived by her nephew, David Bruce Cronk and his wife, Patricia Cronk; niece, Ann Spooner; several great-nieces and nephews.
She is predeceased by her brother, Scott Porter Means and sister, Ida Roberta Means.
Donations may be sent in her memory to Tidewell Hospice of Sarasota, Florida.
