Obituary

Obituary for Margaret English "Peg" Curran

Margaret E. “Peg” Curran, 93, of Providence, formerly of Saunderstown and Warwick, passed peacefully on June 17, 2019 at The Harbor at Capitol Ridge where she received extraordinary care for the past seven years. The family extends profound gratitude to The Harbor’s compassionate and caring staff as well as to the dedicated team from Continuum Care Hospice. They extend special thanks to Jenny Miller and Senior Care Concepts, Inc. for help dealing with the complications of dementia care.

Peg was born at home in Providence to the late Dr. John M. F. English and Margaret (Brogan) Hall. She grew up with her late sister, Joan (English) Gammino, R. N., in Edgewood. She graduated from Dean Academy (now Dean College) and the former Rhode Island State College (now URI), where she was a member of Sigma Kappa. Peg was a social worker for the State of Rhode Island, retiring to raise her three children.

Peg, also known as Snit, was an outstanding student athlete, excelling at softball, volleyball, basketball, and tennis. She continued playing tennis through much of her life. From a young age, she was also a hustler-level pool player. That muscle memory served her well into her late eighties.

Widow of William A. Curran, to whom she was married for 53 wonderful years. She is survived by her three children; Margaret (Meg) Curran of Providence, Chairperson of the RIPUC; David J. E. Curran, RI State Deputy Fire Marshall, and his wife Phyllis, of Hope Valley; and Jeffrey P. Curran and his wife Lynn; as well as nine grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. She also leaves her sister-in-law, Sheila Pliakas; her brother-in-law, Joseph Hall, and his wife Jane, and many nieces and nephews.

Peg’s family will cordially receive visitors on Sunday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at ‘The Pavilion at Grace’, 300 Westminster Street, Providence. Committal services will be held Monday morning at 11:00 am at RI Veterans’ Cemetery in Exeter.

In lieu of flowers and in honor of Chippie, Peg’s beloved Abyssinian feline friend, donations to Defenders of Animals, Inc. in Providence [www.defendersofanimals.org] would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Berarducci Funeral Home, Providence.

I was very sorry to hear (too late) of Peg’s passing, as I would have worked to attend either the visitation or the funeral. Peg gave me my first paid summer job at Plum Beach as the one to watch over Jeff’s kiddo exploits around the plat. Husband Bill was my parents’ lawyer. The Currans, like us, were part of the fabric of Plum Beach during those years, with us all being involved in swim lessons and tennis lessons, and the adults in the summer tennis tournaments. I have warm memories of Peg, always gracious, always really nice to me. I’m so sorry I didn’t hear of her death in time to attend. My sincere condolences to Meg, David and Jeff, et al
