Our beloved Mother, Violet (Dorothy) F. Perry was carried by the angels Sunday, October 6, 2013. Dorothy celebrated her 96th birthday and 75th wedding anniversary with her husband Harry C. Perry, Jr. and family on September 25th. Our mother was a most exceptional woman with a heart that was extended to everyone she met. Her joy was to bring laughter wherever she went. Her energy was contagious.
Dorothy was born in Washington DC. She lived most of her life in Silver Spring, Md.
The last three years she lived with her daughter and son-in-law in Medford, NJ.
Dorothy had many hobbies; square dancing, line dancing and bowling, which she did until she was 90 years old. But there is no question...her most important job in life was to be a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother known as Nannie.
Dorothy leaves behind her husband of 75 years, Harry (Bud) C. Perry, Jr., her son Harry C. Perry III and wife Kay of Marietta, Ga., her daughter Judy Braddy and husband Charles of Medford, NJ. The grandchildren are Eric Perry (deceased), Melissa Perry, Ryan Perry and wife Elizabeth all of Georgia and Lauren Corso and husband Ryan of Marietta, Pa. The great grandchildren are Evan Humphries, Logan Perry and Camden Perry all of Georgia.
Violet will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery. At that time family and friends will come together to have a joyful celebration and small family memorial.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Holiday Park Senior Inc. , 3950 Ferrara Drive, Wheaton, Md 20906 in honor of Dorothy Perry.
