On Sunday, February 17, 2019, Mary Louisa (Gordon) Perry passed away, surrounded by the love of her children, at the
age of 94.
Mary Louisa (Mary or Louise as known to friends and family) was born on September 23, 1924 in Paxton, Florida to
William Lafayette and Bama (Mason) Gordon. She went to Paxton High School where she played on the Girls Basketball
Team. She was very active in 4H that is where she learned to sew. She worked at a Sewing factory in Florala, Alabama
and at Wolverine Knitting Mills in Bay City, Michigan. On February 29, 1942, she married Daniel James Perry. They
raised 6 daughters and one son.
Louise was very competitive. She loved playing Tripoley with the women of Silver Lake, Bunko with the ladies of Lake of
the Pines and Tuesday night Euchre with the gang at Lake of the Pines. She would play cribbage or skip-boo with her
husband Dan and when she would win, she would celebrate a little too much, that in turn would send a deck of cards
into the wood stove. She loved to play checkers and the board game Trouble with her grandchildren, never feeling sorry
when she would win and would never let them win to make them feel better.
From Florida, Alabama to Tawas, Michigan, Essexville, Michigan to Lake, Michigan and anywhere in between, Louise
made friends wherever she went, always ready to chat or to comment to someone. After moving to Lake, Michigan in
1977, she became active at the Lake of the Pines. She started the Lake of the Pines Women's Club, which is still active
today. She has enjoyed many other clubs that the women of Lake of the Pines have going on, especially "Stitch and
Bitch" as she liked to call it. She was also active in the VFW Auxiliary Post 3039 in Farwell, Michigan. There she enjoyed
the meetings, friendships and most of all marching in the Labor Day Parade.
She is survived by her children Geri Warren of Bay City, Daniel Perry (Deb) of Oshkosh Wisconsin, Susan (Jeffrey
Witbrodt) of Midland, Linda Martin (Don Leslie) and Elizabeth (Bernard Yantz) of Traverse City, 18 Grandchildren, 30
Great Grandchildren and 12 Great, Great Grandchildren, Brother in law Dick Perry (Maxine), Sister in laws Darlene Perry
and Violet Perry, along with family and friends from all walks of her life. A special thank you goes to Vicki Brauner. A
neighbor and friend, that without her caring ways, Louise could not have stayed in her home as long as she did. Also,
leaving behind, Louise's one true love, Chocolate.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents William Lafayette and Bama Gordon, her husband Daniel, her daughters
Mary Lou (Fred Merkle, Don Fella) and Margaret (Art Hofmeister), her brothers William (Caroline), Wilson (Elsie) and
Lansing (Edith), her sisters, Letha (Kenneth Noble) and Lilly (Bill Carnley), Sister in laws Marvel (AI Sly), Rose Ellen
(husband Bill Gilson), Patricia (Percy Silbernagel), Monica (George Hinkley), Brother in laws Cullen (Kite) Perry (Deloris),
Bernard Perry, Donald Perry (Adele), Bill Perry and John (Jack) Perry, along with so many of her dear friends.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday February 23rd at the Campbell Stocking Funeral Home in Farwell, Michigan. A funeral luncheon will follow, provided by the Lake of the Pines. Pastor Connie Bongard will officiate with burial taking place in Freeman Township Cemetery in Lake, Michigan. Family and friends may visit with Mary’s family on Friday from 5 until 8PM.
