Lucille Rebecca Perry

July 11, 1930July 13, 2021

Lucille R. Perry, 91, of Waynesburg, left this world peacefully July 13, 2021 in her home.

She was born July 11, 1930 in Waynesburg, to Metta Jane and David E. Morris and spent her whole life in Greene County.

In 1953, she married John Perry, who died in 2011.

She is survived by three children and their partners: Mike Perry (Linda Cooper), Cindy Bailey (Bob) and Brad Perry (Randi).

Also surviving are five granddaughters: Allison Perry, Julie Bailey Cohen (David), Annie Bailey, Brenna Perry and Livi Perry.

She was preceded in death by her daughter-in-law Janet Perry.

She was the last of her immediate family, which included siblings Metta, Albert and Covert. Her greatest sorrow was Covert’s death at Normandy on D Day, June 6, 1944. For the rest of her life she remained patriotic and supported several veterans organizations.

In her late 40s she returned to work as a cook at the former Curry Memorial Home in Waynesburg where she worked for 15 years. She was a member of Bates Fork Baptist Church.

She remained independent and stayed current with news and enjoyed reading and word games. Recent politics shocked her, but she said people should respect the President, no matter how bad he may or may not be.

She was a Taylor Swift fan and agreed that it’s best to “shake it off” when people are mean. She was fortunate to spend her last birthday with her whole family just a few days before she passed. Her whole life was devoted to her family and the light from her life will live on in them.

“Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise....” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:31‬

Arrangements were in the hands of Behm Funeral Home and services were private.

So, so sorry for your loss. I remember just having seen pictures of her with the girls a few days ago and thinking it looked like she had lost some weight compared to other pictures of her that I had seen. I know you were very close to your Mom. May she rest in peace. And may you find solace in the memories of good times. God Bless, Kathy
