Lorna Nell (Rieck) Perry was born Nov. 27, 1936, in Fletcher, to John and Dorothy (Long) Rieck. She graduated from Fletcher High School and attended Oklahoma College for Women in Chickasha. Lorna married Shirley Perry on Sept. 17, 1956. The two were married for 59 years and were blessed with three children. She served as the school secretary at Cyril Elementary School where she greeted parents and children, provided instructional support for teachers, assisted in the library and cafeteria, maintained official grade records, and judiciously distributed Band-Aids for a multitude of playground mishaps. "Mrs. Perry" was a calming and compassionate presence in the front office for many years. She was an active and devoted member of the First Baptist Church in Cyril throughout her life.
Lorna is survived by two sons: Toby Perry and his wife Cindy, Sugar Land, Texas, and Todd Perry, Cyril; a daughter, Tracy Wade and her husband Mark, Simonton, Texas; seven grandchildren: Becky Ricketts and her husband Rodman, Adam Perry and his wife Lauren, Jared Perry, Christine Perry, Emma Perry, Molly Wade, and Fletcher Wade; a great-granddaughter, Madison Perry; two great-grandsons: Oliver and Theodore Perry; and a sister, Minnie Williams.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Shirley Perry; her parents; and her niece, Michelle Fica.
