Mariana Goyenetche lived her childhood in Currie, a small town southwest of Wendover, Nevada. There, her mother owned the Currie Hotel which she ran until Mariana went to high school in Ely. A few years after Mariana moved to Ely, her mother moved there as well and bought the Spokane Rooming House there. 

Over the years, Mariana has run the Spokane, as well as living on ranches with her husband and running a grocery store in Ely as well. In this interview there is some great information about the old Currie Hotel, including what facilities were available at the time.
