|Let the memory of Marsha be with us forever|
Marsha Kay Perry (71), resident of North Logan, Utah, passed away Friday, September 5th, at the Sunshine Terrace Rehabilitation Center as a result of cardiac failure.
Marsha was born on July 21, 1943 in Logan, Utah, and was the fourth child of George Helm and Norma Smith Perry. She graduated from Logan High School in 1962. She also attended special education classes where she met Wayne Harris who she married in 1978. They had one daughter (Kami), but later divorced. Marsha and her daughter lived with her parents and Marsha helped take care of them until their deaths.
Marsha was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She played the piano, organ, and accordion, and was the pianist for a special needs ward for several years. She also loved attending the Logan Senior Citizen Center to visit and to play bingo, and she crocheted and embroidered numerous items for their boutique shop.
Marsha spent the final years of her life with her daughter and granddaughter, Kami Perry McNeil and Brooklyn McNeil of North Logan.
In addition to Kami and Brooklyn, Marsha is survived by her sister Margaret (Wally) Sjoblom of North Ogden and her brother Robert (Winona) Perry of North Logan. She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers: George Henry Perry of Tremonton, UT, and Merrill E. Perry of Logan, UT.

"I met Marsha at the senior center. I remember she liked cheesecake but often could not get any from the snack area because she rode the center bus which would not arrive until 10 am. Since the snacks went quickly and knowing she liked cheesecake, I would get her a piece and sit at my table keeping on eye on it so nobody else would get it. Marsha was always pleased to find it at her spot. She was always very nice and liked to read novels. I missed seeing her at the center when she stopped coming. I know the people who shared the same dining table with her miss her also. Many of them did not know about her death nor when the funeral was scheduled. It would have been nice for the senior center to have an area on the bulletin board to announce the passing of their clients."
