Patricia Ann Perry, age 76, passed peacefully in home hospice on 16 Sep 2023 with her son Patrick and daughter Sherry Ann by her side after a courageous battle with cancer. Born 12 Nov 1946 in Westerly, RI, she was predeceased by her parents Ann and Alexander Newing, Jimmy Perry her husband of 44 years, and her sister Kathy. Patty is survived by sisters Sherry and JoAnn, her brother Ted, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends. Patty was the epitome of a hardworking mother and devoted wife. She was blessed with endurance and a firm sense of fairness. She worked various jobs in service support fields and formerly co-owned the Blue Crab restaurant in Ocean View area of Norfolk. Patty loved museums and dragonflies, was sharp of wit, loved life, and saw humor that others missed. As a humble and private person, she requested no funeral. A quiet family oriented celebration of life may be planned in the distant future. Her favorite charity was Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Condolences may be left for the family below.
