Healthy Traditions Network and the Weston A. Price Foundation Community are sad to announce that Deidre Currie recently passed away. Deidre Currie was a devoted Weston A. Price Chapter Leader in Michigan and also in her homeland of New Zealand/Australia.
Dee’s husband, Archie Welch, has been involved with Healthy Traditions Network for many years and we send our deepest sympathies to him and to Dee’s family.
Dee passed away from a pulmonary embolism while giving birth to her son. The baby is doing well, but is still in the hospital’s NICU unit.

We are heartbroken to have lost such a vibrant person who passionately taught and lived her life following the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation. The Weston A. Price Foundation will be setting up the “Deidre Currie Memorial Scholarship Fund” to support international students that need financial assistance to attend the annual WAPF conference. This will honor Deidre’s work as a WAPF Chapter Leader, and the fact that she and Archie met at the WAPF conference years ago.
