Mrs. Perry was a member of Indian Oaks Christian Church. She was an educator for 30 years, specializing in elementary education, where she touched the lives of so many throughout her career. Mrs. Perry was a member of the Pilot Club, AEA, Girl Scouts of America, and the Saks Retired Teachers Lunch Club. In her spare time, she was known for her consummate hosting of family gatherings, especially birthday celebrations where she could easily convince her family they "needed" at least one delicious homemade cake. Selflessness was a trait that Mrs. Perry exhibited throughout her marriage and life. She was a devoted military wife, never wavering in the support she continually gave to her husband; she was a wonderful mother, always encouraging and devoting time to her children; and she was an exceptional "Grandma", who spoiled her grandchildren greatly and made them the "apple of her eye". Mrs. Perry had many hobbies she enjoyed in her spare time, including her love for reading and shopping. She also enjoyed traveling to the beach when she was able. Mrs. Perry will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made to Saks Elementary School in Mrs. Perry's memory, to help provide school supplies for the students. You can mail donations to the school at 31 Watson Street Anniston, AL 36206
