Just 2 days short of her 97th birthday, Mary Perry left us to be with her parents, brothers, sister and her wonderful husband Gabriel. She was a believer that great things will happen to you when we pass from this life to the next and that all of us will be able to share in this experience if we can just believe. She was a long time resident of Biggs, she enjoyed sewing and camping and crafts. She was a devoted homemaker, loved her family and volunteered many years at the food closet. She also worked at Libbys Cannery.
She is survived by her two sons, Gene (Marcía) Perry and John Perry, all of Biggs; two daughters, Arlene (Richard) Grein and Dorothy Steevs also of Biggs; seven grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
