Obituary for Grace Marie Perrone (1921 - 2013)

I made an earlier post, but just saw the obituary come out this evening, for Fr. Perrone's mother, Grace.

Grace Marie Perrone passed away peacefully with family by her side at St. John Hospital in Detroit on October 15, 2013 at the age of 92. She was born on March 22, 1921 in Detroit; daughter of Alphonso and Angelina (nee Viviano) Pizzimenti. She graduated from Miller High School in Detroit in 1939. 

On February 14, 1942 Grace married Philip Perrone at St. Charles of Borromeo Catholic Church in Detroit. The lived in Detroit until 1971 when they moved to Chesterfield Twp. In 1987 Grace moved to Warren. Grace lived a wonderful life. She was gregarious and funny. She was very socially active and loved spending time with her family. Mrs. Perrone was a devout Catholic who would attend daily Mass until she couldn't drive anymore, which reduced her attendance to three or four times a week. She was a third order Carmelite. Grace's hobbies included cooking, ushering at the music hall, and spending time with family and friends. 

She was predeceased by the love of her life Philip, who passed away two days after their 40th wedding anniversary. Grace leaves behind her loving children Chi Chi (Don) Hobart, Father Eduardo Perrone, Philip (Cindy) Perrone, and Angela Perrone. She was proud of her grandchildren Derek, Christian, Philip, Mark, Nicholas, and Michelle. She adored her 5 great-grandchildren. She will be missed by her siblings Domenic, Rose, Elizabeth "Boots", Theresa, and Bill "Pete". She was predeceased by her sister Angela, and brothers Joseph, Jerry, and Frank.
