Perri, Mary M. (Vang)


Peacefully passed on to Heaven on November 25, 2017. She fought a tough fight with ovarian cancer for almost 4 years. Survived by her husband of 36 years, Paul Perri. Also, sisters Debbie Jesmin, Lisa Valbergs, Diane Vang and brother Joe Vang and families.

Mary is a loving spirit like no other. Her smiles and words brightened many people’s day.
Mary loved to make people feel good no matter if they were a friend or stranger. She was a special gift for all of us.

Mary was a hard worker and she was always an incredible asset to our businesses. She managed our video store, Video Image in the 80’s. Mary played a vital part in our network marketing business during the 90’s and for the last 20 years building our Ebay & Amazon business. She was always by my side and I could not have asked for a better person to share my life with. Mary was truly my blessing from God.

Mary’s wish was to help animals by starting a website called CreatureKindness.com. This site would educate people on the welfare of animals and how the planet effects the life of God’s creatures. Shortly after we started to work on the website Mary was experiencing pain and bloating, after months of doctors guessing, Mary insisted on receiving a CT scan which showed a large mass. That’s when our world turned upside down and our focus changed.

I promised Mary that I would rebuild and continue her work on the CreatureKindness website to create awareness and financial support for her cause. Any donations will help to support this worthwhile effort. Visit www.creaturekindness.com or send donations to: MP Enterprises, 350 Harwick Rd, Rochester, NY 14609 where you may also request for more info.

Memorial Service and Birthday Celebration will be on January 6, 2018 at 10AM at the Faith on Fire Fellowship Church, 319 Browncroft Blvd. next to 590. Paster John Morgan, an old friend of Mary’s will do the honors.
