Allan Dell Perley, beloved husband of Elma (Schwab) passed away suddenly on December 1, 2012 in the care of Wascana Rehab Centre, Regina at the age of 92 years. A celebration of Allan's life will be held in St. James United Church, Wolseley on Friday, December 14th at 2:30 p.m. with Rev. Suzanne Edgar officiating. Interment will follow in Wolseley Cemetery. Allan was predeceased by his wife of 57 years Elma, a sister Jean (Perley) Stone, and a sister Noreen (Perley) Rannie. Surviving Allan are his son and daughter Eldon Perley and Janet (Perley) Marsh, Janet's husband Wayne Marsh, niece Krista (Rannie) Shultz, nephew Douglas Stone, grandchildren Shaun and his wife Lesli (Freeman) Perley, Jaime Matt, Chad Perley, and great-granchildren Tyla and Emry Perley. Allan was born on the farm north of Wolseley in 1919, oldest child of W.D (Dell) Perley and his wife Nan (Armitage)Perley. Allan grew up a hard worker, quitting school at a young age to help on the farm. In later years he cut wood for a living, and at the outbreak of war in 1939 entered the Canadian forces in defense of his country as a volunteer, where he served until the end of the war. Allan took advantage of the Veterans Land Act to re-purchase the family farm and set himself up there, marrying Elma Schwab in 1955. They lovingly adopted two children, Eldon and Janet to share their lives on the farm, where they lived until 1976, at which time the farm was sold and the move was made to Wolseley. Allan and Elma lived in Wolseley for 34 years, excluding a year in Peachland, BC in the early 80's.On line condolences may be made at
