Mrs. Perry was a resident of Star, Mississippi and passed away on Sunday at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson. The viewing took place last night at Chancellor Funeral Home in Florence, Mississippi. The service will be private.
Perry adopted Faith with her husband of 59 years Wesley “Ted” Perry.
Faith praised her parents in an interview with Larry King in 2006,
I actually had a pretty amazing childhood,” she said. “I was adopted, if that’s what you’re referring to, but my family, my mom and my dad and my brothers, they are amazing, very stable, good Christian, God-fearing home, and a great small town of Star, Mississippi. I actually had a really stable childhood.
Faith continued to shower praise on her parents and family,
I was placed into an incredible home that I mean basically is responsible for the way I am today and the backbone that I have in order to do this for a living, which is a crazy, sometimes unstable world that this projects. But the most important thing to me is about my family and that was definitely taught from my mom and dad.
Memorials to Mrs. Perry can be made to Star Baptist Church Children’s Wing Renovation, PO Box 69, Star, MS 39167
Mrs. Perry leaves behind her husband, sons, Wesley F. Perry and Steve Perry, her daughter, Faith Hill, seven grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, her sisters, Paula Bunch and Sara Shannon; and her brother, Pat Thaggard.
