I have many memories of the Perchuk family - our paths as families often intersected.
My mom and Jean were friends who had a good deal in common - rural isolation, many rowdy children, often cash-strapped and the challenges of keeping it all going.
Jean was generous with her time and her love - which often appeared in the form of food from her kitchen. Anytime of the day or night if you appeared at their house something was burbling on the stove and you were handed a dish of it.....borscht, cabbage rolls, perogies, oatmeal, turkey, meatballs etc. (Thank goodness she didn't insist on sharing the headcheese!)
Jean worked hard. Fruits and veggies were bought by the case, picked by the case, grown by the acre it seemed and all were stewed, pickled, canned, frozen or cooked. She did this while running her household and the office at the lumberyard.
Again, I have so many fond memories - that precarious balance of fun and danger that shapes a child and carries them into adolescence.
What a character. I have no doubt that Mrs. Perchuk is in the good place - I only hope the good place is decorated purple and has a never-ending supply of lotto tickets.
Sincere condolences to the family.
Love to you all.
