      Mrs. Perry began her career as a registered nurse at Potsdam Hospital, where she was head nurse of the first floor. In March 1948, she was appointed public health nurse in Massena and was one of the original eight public health nurses of Oswego County.

      She was a communicant of St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church, Parish, and a member of the Hastings-Parish Veterans of Foreign Wars Post.

She enlisted in the Army Nurses Corps during World War II and served as a second lieutenant in the European theater for 15 months. Upon her return home, she attended Syracuse University, where she majored in public health nursing and graduated Aug. 23, 1947.

      She married Joseph H. Perry on Sept. 1, 1947, in St. Mary's Catholic Church, Potsdam. Mr. Perry died in 1989.
