Obituary for Carrie Currie (Sensenbaugh)

Carrie Susan Sensenbaugh Currie passed away unexpectedly yet peacefully at home February 18, 2023 at a moment known only to her creator, just a week shy of her 70th birthday. Susan, or Sue as she was known to those fond of her (which seemed to be most everyone she met), was preceded in death by her father Donald Clifton Sensenbaugh and her mother Esther Mae Jacobson Sensenbaugh, both US Marines, whom she was born to in Baltimore in 1953. She grew up in Hagerstown, MD whose farms and fields she loved and returned to often throughout her life.

Susan was a devout disciple of Christ and a humble embodiment of God's love in this world. Her kind words and firm hugs were always freely given and warmly received. If there was ever a shoulder in need of a comforting arm, she made sure it was hers. Her handwritten letters and thank you notes, (often thank yous in reply to earlier thank yous) were always thoughtful, sincere, and personal. That's just who she was.

Susan never left a favor unreturned or a kindness unrepaid, though it is God's graceful blessing of life she returns now in death.

She found joy in nature - gardening, growing, hiking, and helping God's creatures.

She found joy in nurture - especially children. Besides her own - the children at the West End Center for Youth, the four children in Kenya she sponsored from childhood to adulthood, the hundreds of children who received weekly backpacks of food through her tireless devotion to the RCPC Hunger Mission Backpack Program.

She found joy in looking out for the last and least among us. She wept at the worlds smallest injustices and raged at the greatest. She DID justice. She LOVED kindness. And she walked HUMBLY all of her days.

She is survived by her husband, Mark, of 43 years, Her sisters Sandy Zimmerman and Sally Dozier, who love her fiercely. Her sons - Luke, Jake, and Morgan, and her only grandson Maxwell, who made her beam with pride. She leaves behind many wonderful cousins, nieces, nephews, and bosom friends all of whom miss her dearly.

Her ashes will be interred in the columbarium at Raleigh Court Presbyterian Church following a funeral service on March 18, at 10 o'clock. In lieu of flowers, her survivors ask that donations be made to the Hunger Mission Program at Raleigh Court Presbyterian Church.
