Obituary for Janet May Perry

Janet May Perry, 91, formerly of St. Thomas, PA, passed away peacefully on Monday morning, October 26, 2020 at The Shook Home in Chambersburg. Born November 21, 1928 in Lurgan, PA, she was a daughter of the late Joseph M. and Ruth Stouffer Paxton. Mrs. Perry was a 1946 graduate of the Shippensburg High School.

She was a member of King Street United Brethren Church and a former member of the Lurgan United Brethren Church. She had been an active member of the American Business Women’s Association and was a talented seamstress.

Perry and wife Kathleen of Cranberry Twp., PA; eight grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and three great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by three sisters, Joan Wolfgang and husband Larry of Chambersburg, Winifred Reed of Fayetteville, and Anna Mary Diehl of Shippensburg.

So sorry for your loss. Sending deepest sympathy. I have found memories of visiting Aunt Janet and Uncle Glen with Grandma and Grandpa Perry each summer. Also Grandma Pete and I would say Hi when we were in Sears. Love, Cousin Vickie
