Lacy Lynn Perry

August 8, 1995September 11, 2020

Lacy Lynn Perry, 25, of Duette, soared with the eagles to be with her Lord on Friday, September 11, 2020.

Lacy was born in Sarasota, Florida to Kelly Lynn and George Weeks Perry, Sr. on August 8, 1995 and is survived by her loving mother and father, her sister Savannah Lynn and brothers, George Weeks Jr., and Landon Michael Anthony Perry. She is also survived by her grandparents Mary and Barry Smith, Carol and Mike McLeod, and Frank Perry Sr; her uncles Richard McLeod (Shirley), Frank Perry Jr., and William McCallister Jr. She also leaves behind a huge family of aunts/uncles, great aunts/uncles, cousins, and friends who are family. One very special lady of note, Great-Aunt Debbie Freer (Joe), was a pillar in the last part of Lacy’s days and is known to have had the best flashlight parties ever with all the cousins. She was preceded in death by her grandmother Gloria Jean “Jeanie” Perry.

Lacy was a master of her craft as lead barista at Raymond James Financial, St. Petersburg. This brought her much joy in sharing her unique creations that so many enjoyed. Lacy was a bright light to a sometimes-dark world. And though her earthly time has ended way too soon, her light remains as bright as ever before. She lived life to its fullest and sought adventure in everything she did. Lacy was unapologetically Lacy and she faced every challenge like a warrior princess. While every earthly battle was not won, she has been the ultimate victor in the joys of eternal life.

Funeral mass will be held at Holy Cross Catholic Church, 501 26th St. W Palmetto, FL 34221 on Saturday, September 19th at 1pm. A reception will follow at Courtyard by Marriott Riverfront, 100 Riverfront Dr. W., Bradenton, FL 34205 from 3pm to 6pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Manatee Children’s Services, 1227 9th Ave. W. Bradenton, FL 34205.

We had such great times with Lacy or as we lovingly called her, Larry! The years we homeschooled together were such a blessing. And we have countless memories, from school to college classes, field trips to SeaWorld and Publix, quilting, cro-knitting, strawberry and tomato picking, baking and jam making, and so many more! She truly was a joy to me and I will miss her.

As a family friend outside of Florida, I didn’t personally know Lacy but I am so very sorry for your loss. Reading these memories makes me smile because it is clear she was a life so well loved. It is that gift that leaves such an important mark in this world. Lifting up your family and Lacy’s friends in prayer during this sad time.

Where do I even begin? We go way back to Gene Witt Elementary where we were 7-8 years old! We did so much together! From golf cart rides to playing in your barn at night, hours of just talking about life itself, even to sports at BDCA and JUMP. I could go on and on about the adventures we did together and everything we accomplished as kids. You were always so full of life and so about trying new things. You’ll forever be my little sister that I always wanted and I will miss you babygirl. I love you💔❤️ #foreverinourhearts

Where do i start you came into my life 11 years ago .I never knew at that time we would become family . We have been through alot in those years and we have had alot of good times and some not so good but no matter what I have always loved you and i always will. I Remember the times i would stay at your house when your parents were away we had good times some so funny i could of peed my pants. And nights i would stay up because you weren't home yet. You are so beautiful and that smile would light up a room. And sometimes you would come into a room and you would be like a tornado and needed to be left alone.But you are home now and you will never be alone you are loved by so many you have left your mark on all of us and I will forever be grateful for that. Lacy you are in my heart and my thoughts every day and I miss you more then you can imagine. Fly High beautiful Angel I love you xoxoxo

From the moment you entered my life, you were like the sunflower shining through. So I want to share this poem with you .
Of all the many blessings
and However great or small
To have had you as a loving niece
Was the greatest Blessings of all.
Our family chain is broken now
And nothing will ever seem the same
But as God takes us one by one
Our Family chain will link again. ❤️❤️❤️I love you Lacy your passing will not be in vain!!

Growing up, me and Lacy were near inseparable. Very quickly, her family became a second home for me. She became the very best friend one could have. Moving away was a tough thing for me, but even when I came back down to my hometown some years back, it was like nothing changed. She never failed to make someone laugh, or see the bright side of things. I’m truly going to miss having her wonderful spirit around, but I know she’ll be watching over. Till we meet again.
