Margaret was loved by all who knew her for her wit and charming, frank manner. She was a long-time member and Sunday School teacher at the Brewers United Methodist Church and an avid Marshall County sports fan. She was well known for her interest in the activities of young people in the community, especially her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was a proud member of the Homemakers Association.
She is survived by her sister Mildred Browning of Frankfort; two daughters-in-law Sharon Perry of Benton and Gail Perry of Benton; six grandchildren, Darren Smith, Kevin Perry, Drew Perry, Derik Perry, Kyle Perry and Jason Perry; and 10 great grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Bill Perry; four children Kay Perry, Diane Perry, Roger Perry and Richard Perry; and two brothers Tom Padgett and John Padgett. Her parents were Clarence Padgett and Genella and Norman Lawrence.
The family would like to especially thank the staff of Stilley House Assisted Living and Marshall County Hospital.
