Marilyn Perry, passed away in Longmont, Colorado on Monday, the 15th of June, 2020 after a lengthy battle with the repercussions of brain surgery.

Marilyn was born on the 1st of May, 1947, in Melbourne, Derbyshire, England. Marilyn was the only child of Winifred (Winnie) and Herbert Edwin Harris. As a young woman, Marilyn worked as an artisan painter of fine bone china at Royal Crown Derby in Derbyshire. While still living in England, Marilyn married Clifford Heath. Marilyn and Clifford lost an infant son Ian, but later welcomed their daughter Wendy in 1973. For a time, Marilyn worked in vegetable production as well as working on the farm. In 1988, Marilyn married Roger Perry, and they welcomed their daughter Laura.

In 1993, Marilyn, Roger, Wendy and Laura emigrated to the United States to a farm near Princeton, Missouri. Then in 1997, Marilyn, Roger, Wendy and Laura moved to the San Luis Valley to the Parma Ranch in Monte Vista, Colorado. Marilyn’s love was her sheep and her dogs. She had a commercial flock of sheep, raised and trained Border Collies to work with the sheep as well as Great Pyrenees to guard the sheep. Marilyn loved country life. She was an avid reader with a very sharp mind. Marilyn loved music and loved to sing show tunes, always humming happily is how she’ll be remembered.

She is survived by her husband Roger Perry; daughter Wendy Heath; daughter Laura Perry; step-children Frances Berry, Andrew Perry, Stuart Perry, Robert Perry and Richard Perry; and grandchildren Isabel Perry, Charlie Sheldon and Ellie Perry.
