August 11, 1923 ~ January 20, 2013
Peggy Perry passed away January 20th. She is survived by her only child, Sandra, three granddaughters, six great grandchildren and three great, great grandchildren.
In April 2012, Ms. Perry was honored as a "Healthcare Hero" by the San Antonio Business Journal having worked as a volunteer greeter at the NIX Alamo Heights Health Clinic for the last two years. This honor solidified her 60 year commitment to the medical field starting her career as a medical secretary in 1947 and eventually joining the radiologist team in Dallas that developed the heat shield for the Apollo astronauts. Ms. Perry proved the motto: "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life."
Ms. Perry will be laid to rest in Dallas next to her husband at Restland. A lover of people, pets and all things Asian and Egyptian, she will be greatly missed as her passing was too soon.
