Elwan Belew Perkins

1944 - 2008 Obituary Condolences
Elwan Belew Perkins, 64, entered eternity Friday, Sept. 19, 2008, in Alamogordo at Good Samaritan Society Betty Dare. She was born Sept. 16, 1944, in Los Angeles, Calif., but her home was Clayton, where she graduated from Clayton High School in 1962. Elwan touched everyone in a very special way. She spent 32 years of her life in a wheelchair as a result of a car accident in 1976. She taught us all how to enjoy life with her laughter, jokes and tears.
She is survived by a large family; the Betty Dare staff ABD residents; her mother, Marjory Belew, of Springhill, Fla.; sisters Noel Marie Colangelo (Bob), of Raton, and Joanne Kurtright (Joe), of Springhill, Fla.; her daughter, Pamela Rogers (Rick), of High Rolls; and three sons, Samuel Perkins (Hope Ann), of Hopedale, Ma., and Noel Perkins (Danniel) and Bill Perkins (Betsy), both of Springhill, Fla. She is also survived by nine grandchildren, Amanda Marshall (Tim), of Cloudcroft; Alexandra and Brianna MacDonald, of High Rolls; Zachary and Samuel III Perkins, of Hopedale, Ma.; and Cameron, Samuel, Chesney and Alyssa, all of Springhill, Fla. Also surviving are Norine Lindblom, of White Rock; David and Sandy Lindblom, of Pojoaque; Todd Lindblom, Gretchen and Tom Saunders, Susan and Dick Blinzler, all of Albuquerque; and many nieces and nephews. A memorial service will take place at a future date with family.
Direct cremation will take place under the care of PCS Direct Cremation Services.
