The former Christa Lou Zuhlke was born on July 26, 1953 in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to Charles R. and Lois J. (Dobbratz) Zuhlke. She was a 1971 graduate of Horicon High School and then worked at John Deere Horicon Works. On September 21, 1974, Christa was united in marriage with Jon R. Curry at St. Malachy Catholic Church in Horicon. She later began her most important career by becoming a mother. Her children were her life. Anything they were involved in, Christa was involved in. She was a Girl Scout Leader, a Cub Scout Den Mother and for about ten years, she ran a child care business out of her home. Church was also very important to her and was involved as a religious education teacher at St. Malachy. Christa worked for several years at Curry Foods and worked at Horicon Bank.
Christa will be missed by her husband Jon of Horicon; children, Nick of Horicon, Monica of Las Vegas, NV, April (Jeremiah) Herrera of Lomira, and Valerie (Steve) Christian of Mayville; four grandchildren, Brayden, Adalyn, Emily, and Clark; father-in-law, Bud Curry of West Bend; brother, Larry (Sherry) Zuhlke of Desoto; in-laws, Lisa (Andrew) Sullivan of Horicon, Ellen (Thomas) Resch of Wawatosa, Richard (Jill) Curry of Horicon, Jill Curry and Jeff Curry, both of Phoenix, AZ; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Lori Zuhlke; brother, Charles Zuhlke; mother-in-law, Margaret Curry; and sister-in-law, Kathy Arndorfer-Zuhlke.
