R.I.P. June Curry (A.K.A. "The Cookie Lady)
« on: August 20, 2012, 01:43:27 pm »
I heard that June Curry, the long standing "Trail Angel" of the Trans Am route (ever since it's beginning, in fact) has passed away. This is certainly not by any definition 'new' news, as it happened last July 16th (http://www.vabike.org/june-curry-the-cookie-lady-dies-at-91/).

Yet for some reason there is no mention of it on any of the forums that I have found, nor in the addenda for that section of the route. So I decided to start this thread in memory of her, and for anyone to ask questions about her or what effects her passing will have on that part of the route.

I never got a chance to meet her, I was in fact on the Trans-Am trail at the time, crossing the country and looking forward to meeting her when I got there when she passed. I was in Kansas at the time ( http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/?o=1&page_id=292933&v=1L ).

Somehow, thinking I will have to say I did the TransAmerica route without being able to see her takes a rather significant piece out of the accomplishment.
May you always have the winds at your back, and a low enough gear for the grades

A nice tribute by our own Jim Sayer: http://blog.adventurecycling.org/2012/07/our-trail-angel-flies-away.html contains links to much more about June.
