Beloved wife of the late Everett Karl Perry. Devoted mother of Jane Perry Forman and her husband, Charles, John David Perry and his wife, Deborah, and the late Thomas Andrew Perry.

She was an elegant, warm, kind and gracious lady and will be so missed and always loved by those she left behind. The family is so grateful for her devoted caregivers, Beth, Iesa, Nadia and Gladys. A private graveside service and interment will be held in West Springfield, MA. There will be a Celebration of Life gathering, the date and location to be announced.
