Irene G. Curcio
Richfield Springs – Irene Grace Angier Curcio, 88, of Elm Street, passed from this life quietly on Wednesday, January 28, in her home with her loving family at her side.
She was a lifelong resident of Richfield Springs and youngest of eight children born to William and Ella Gallagher Angier. Irene was educated in the Bronner Street School and as a young girl worked at ShurKatch and the Cary Cottage.

Surviving are her daughter and son-in-law, Sheila and Ralph Osterhoudt, of Richfield Springs; her devoted grandson, Cory, and his companion Lisa Asher, of Waterford; and many nieces and nephews. Besides her parents and husband Frank she was preceded in death by her youngest daughter, Susan Curcio, along with five sisters and two brothers.
