She worked at the Telephone Company for 20 years and retired in August 1982. She loved children and spending time with her family. She enjoyed sewing and gardening.
She was admirably strong or stubborn as others would say.

She is survived by Larry Bion Perkins (Sherlene), Franklin Terry Perkins (Janet), Carla Althea Thorstrom (Gary), Joseph Lee Perkins (Michelle), Linda Florine Springer (Marvin “Sip”), Nona Cay Nibley (Robert), and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She will be remembered and loved by so many for years to come. Anyone who is lucky enough to have known her will not be soon to forget her.
