Rose PerryDunmore, PA February 25, 1925 ~ January 16, 2018 Date of Service: January 22, 2018
Rose Perry, 40 days short of her 93rd birthday, died Tuesday in the Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit in Dunmore. She was the wife of the late Paul P. Perry who died in 2007.
Born in Jessup, she was the daughter of the late Salvatore “Sam” and Marion Intore Prizzi. Rose was a graduate of Jessup High School and prior to retirement she was employed as a spot welder at the former Luger Wire in Dunmore. She was a member of SS. Anthony & Rocco Parish in Dunmore.
Rose loved her sweets, and in high school she worked at the Loftus Drug Store in Jessup where the kids wrote a poem about her for being generous with the ice cream when making them sundaes. She enjoyed monthly outings to casinos in Atlantic City, Mt. Airy, and Mohegan Sun. She also enjoyed PA lottery tickets and playing the daily number. She kept her mind sharp by regularly playing crossword puzzles, crypt-o-grams, and scramble word puzzles.
Her family would like to thank Dr. Mary Ann McDonald and the staff and nurses at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart in Dunmore for the care provided to their mother.
Surviving are a daughter Linda (Morgan) Perry, Harrisburg; two sons: Paul Perry, Washington, DC, and Ron Perry and his wife Stephanie Warholak Perry, Dunmore; four grandchildren: Christian Morgan and his wife Elizabeth, River Edge, NJ; Candice Wilson and her husband Skip, Quaker Hill, CT; Sandra Perry and companion Jeff Krenitsky, and Marc Perry both of Dunmore; great grandchildren: Ashley Morgan, Lancaster; Hannah, Abby, and John Morgan, River Edge, NJ; Luke, Lydia, and Levi Wilson, Quaker Hill, CT; and a great-great grandson, Leo Morgan; several nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by three sisters: Theresa Prizzi, Grace Fortese, and Carmella Siracusa, and an infant brother, Sam Prizzi.
A mass of Christian burial will be held Monday at 9:30 a.m. in St. Anthony of Padua Church, Smith Street in Dunmore. Memorial contributions may be made to the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 100 William Street, Dunmore, PA 18510.
