Interfaith and Habitat join forces and complete legacy to Joe Curry
KILMARNOCK—Nearly a year after fire left the home of Audrey and Lankford Lee of Kilmarnock uninhabitable, the couple was presented the keys to their restored residence during a ceremony last Saturday.
The restoration was possible through the efforts of the late Joe Curry, along with backing from the Lancaster/Northumberland Interfaith Service Council. “My house would still be a boarded-up shell if not for Joe Curry’s leadership,” said Audrey Lee.
Kilmarnock mayor Mae Umphlett called Curry “a great man who put others before himself,” during the key presentation.
Unfortunately, Curry, who died in late September, passed away before he could see the work fully completed by Lancaster-Northumberland Habitat for Humanity, but he had everything on track for completion, said Interfaith vice president Junell Haskins.
