Joan Marie Perrier Perret

April 2, 1935 — February 10, 2023

Crofton

Joan Marie Perrier Perret entered into eternal life on February 10 at the age of 87 years old, following a long illness.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 65 years, Joseph Francis Perret, Sr., her 8 children: Joseph Francis Perret, Jr. (Colleen), Joni MacDonald (William), Nancy Ann Stuehler (William), Lynn Marie Ross (James), Leigh Ann Perret Dowd (Robert), Mary Ann Perret (James Baldwin), James Perrier “Perry” Perret (Michelle), and Paul Aleman Perret (Pamela), 21 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren plus another expected this June, and her sister Karen Perrier McGoey.

She is predeceased by her parents Claude Victor Perrier, Sr. and Inez Steiner Perrier, her brother Claude Victor Perrier, Jr. , and her sisters Mary Ann Perrier, Marie Louise Perrier Hardy and Inez Perrier Grieshaber.

Joan was born April 2, 1935 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was raised in the city, attended Ursuline Academy, and Loyola University of New Orleans where she studied Medical Technology and met her husband. Joan spent many years working and volunteering at St Pius X Catholic school and parish. She taught art for many years to the elementary school children, was a member of the Sodality, and organized the school uniform exchange, among many other activities she enjoyed. After she retired, she was a regular volunteer at Caring Collection, making stained glass angels to benefit Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and patient care at the DeCesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Joan was an avid tennis player until her knees no longer cooperated and she loved to watch professional tennis on TV. Her favorite weekend pastime was cruising neighborhood yard sales negotiating deals on all sorts of treasures. She loved arts, crafts, and playing the piano.

To her last days, Joan remained a positive, happy person. She never complained about her decline, smiled with joy at every visitor, and expressed thanks for a wonderful life. She was a beautiful wife, mother, and human being.
