Wife of Former ALTA President Mike Currier Passes Away

July 17, 2012

Linnie Currier, the wife of former ALTA President Mike Currier, passed away Monday, July 16. Mike, who resides in Carlsbad, N.M., served as the 1994-95 ALTA president. Anne Anastasi, who was recruited years ago to become more involved in ALTA by the Curriers, said she’s never met a man who loved his wife more than Mike loved Linnie. “Known to be kind and caring, Linnie had a sense of humor that was never unkind toward others,” said Anastasi, who served as ALTA president from 2010-2011. “She was a strong, sensible business woman who suffered no fools. The right way was the only way Linnie would do things.” Anastasi said her parents, Bill and Genie Davis, were grounded, down-home folks who set an example that Linnie passed on to their daughter, Missi. Known to do the jitterbug with Mike during ALTA conventions, one of Linnie’s greatest pleasures over these past two years was the planning and the celebrating of her daughter’s wedding, Anastasi said. A memorial service is scheduled for 4 p.m. July 21 at First United Methodist Church. Immediately following the service, a reception will be held at the Riverside Country Club, 1700 W. Orchard Lane.
