Perry and husband Reid of Hilton Head Island; her grandchildren, Catherine Morgan (Marvin), Leslie Lance (Jonathon), Lauren Parks (Chris Marshall), Lyle Parks (Ashley), Beckman Perry (Tom Apsey), and Chas Perry; 5 great grandchildren. She was predeceased by a sister Mary Louise Lackey.

The family will receive friends Saturday, October 7th from 3:00 to 5:00 P.M. at the home located at 109 Sheffield Road.

The family wishes to make a heartfelt thank you to Caris Hospice Care, and special friends Nita, Bridgett, and Lynda who enabled their mother to stay in her beloved home.
