PERRY, JOAN, 67, of Waterbury, passed away in the comfort of her home and family on February 10. Born in Morrisville Nov. 4, 1946, she was the daughter of the late Donald and Jeanette (Fiske) Senna. On Dec. 5, 1964, she married Donald F. Perry in Waterbury. Joan grew up and attended schools in Stowe.

Joan’s memberships included the Waterbury Area Senior Citizens, the Harry N. Cutting American Legion Auxiliary Unit 59 and the Red Hat Society. Joan is lovingly remembered for all the joy and happiness she experienced spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren; for the simple pleasures she enjoyed such as a good book, playing bingo, bowling, doing jigsaw puzzles, as well as spending time in her garden, canning and cooking. Joan is loved and mourned by her husband of 49 years, Donald Perry, of Waterbury; their daughters Dawn Russell and husband, Floyd, of Waterbury Center, Valerie Mercer and husband, Jeff, of West Berlin, and Karen Bryce and husband, Timothy, of Charlotte; her four grandchildren; and her brother, James Senna, of Chelsea.
