Helen J. Perry

June 27, 1937-February 2, 2021

Helen Jeanine Perry, born June 27, 1937 in LaGrande, Ore., died February 2, 2021.

She was one of five children and was an adventurous young woman, traveling to Seattle, working for the phone company, flying in airplanes and eventually marrying Raymond Perry.

During their 30-year marriage, Helen raised her three sons Douglas, Donald and Dean in Waitsburg, Wash. The boys kept her busy with never a dull moment.  She loved to fish, was a great cook and enjoyed spending time in the family garden.

After her children left home and Helen turned 50, she returned to college and remarkably became a registered nurse. She spent many years caring for her patients in Washington and Montana before settling in Pomeroy, Wash., for a peaceful retirement. She loved reading, putting together puzzles and her cats.

Helen attended church at Pomeroy Christian and she treasured the time she got to spend with her sons and grandson. Helen fought a brave battle with Cancer and even beat the odds by beating Covid!

She was preceded in death by her son Douglas and her sister LouAnne.

She is survived by her sons Donald Perry, and Dean (Cheri) Perry, her only grandchild Tyler Perry, her siblings David (Lita), Mary and Susie.

Helen was loved and her family is comforted to know they will see her again in heaven.
