About Donna Curry

Donna Curry was born on Nov. 29, 1965 in Clinton, the daughter of Al and Annahue (Baisch) Wood. She grew up in Custer City, where she graduated high school and was an All-State basketball player. She then received her Bachelor's Degree in Education from Oklahoma State University, and later received her Master's Degree from East Central State University in Ada. She and Curtis Curry were married on March 11, 1989 and in 1997 made their home in McAlester. Donna immediately went to work at Frink-Chambers School as a kindergarten teacher and quickly got her counselor's certificate, and was the school counselor for 25 years. She loved her work and so loved all the kids that, outside of her own family, her work was her life. She was a 4-H leader for the school kids, many of whom earned multiple state and national awards. She was also active on the family ranch, where they breed and raise registered Hereford cattle. She was a member of the Oklahoma Hereford Women and the National Hereford Women, where she served on the Board of Directors. She also loved to spend time at the lake with her family.
