Mom loved being with her family and enjoyed travelling, music, reading, the theatre, her friends and a large glass of wine - though not necessarily in that order!

Such a sweet kind generous lady. Remembering gentle ways and of course her baking. Thanks Madeline for the peanut butter pie recipe. Rest in peace.

I remember Mrs Curnow picking me up to go to church meetings. She was a very wise woman and always had great advice! She will be missed.

A truly lovely and classy lady has left us. I am so grateful for the years I spent with Madeleine Curnow teaching at J.L. Mitchener School. She was a wonderful mentor, confidante and friend.She will be missed. I hope she's sipping a glass of wine and smoking a slim cigar in Heaven as we mourn her loss. Condolences to Madeleine's family. May God comfort you at this sad time.

I worked with Madeleine for several years at J.L.Mitchener. Always a classy lady. I was privileged to enjoy the odd glass of wine with her as well. God bless her and her family.

So many memories of the Curnows. Gordon and Madeline were such good friends of my parents(Craig and Ethel). Our deepest sympathies to Wendy, Dennis and families.

I have fond memories of Mrs. Curnow from being a library assistant at J.L Mitchener School. We always loved the treats she left for us, and of course the year-end parties where she drove us to a park for Kentucky Fried Chicken and then to Hewitt's for ice cream! In my adult years, I used to see her at the Haldimand Press when she came in to renew subscription and we always had a little visit. My appreciation for reading, writing (and spelling) would have started in that library, thank you Mrs. Curnow.

Her memory will live on in the wonderful stories, anecdotes (and recipes) that will be shared and cherished for years to come!
May these comfort and console you.
Our love,
