Reta Lee Riley PerryJune 11, 1938 ~ July 15, 2017 (age 79)
Farmington, UT - Reta Lee Riley Perry returned home on July 15, 2017, for a joyful reunion with her sweetheart, Wayne. Reta was born on June 11, 1938 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Rulon and LoReta Sprague Riley. She grew up in Bountiful, Utah, and graduated from Davis High school. She married Wayne Jensen Perry on June 4, 1960. They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on December 19, 1963 and raised their family in Farmington Utah.
Reta worked as an office specialist for Davis County at the School District, Attorney’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, and Mental Health Office. She taught drama lessons with Grace Stuart and from her home. Reta’s family loved to be entertained by some of the characters she portrayed. She was always a loving, nurturing wife and mother who created a stable home for her family. Reta and Wayne were an amazing example to their children and grandchildren of love, commitment and strong family values. Some of our greatest memories were made around the campfire during our annual Perry camping trips. All who knew Reta loved her and will miss her.
She is preceded in death by her husband, her parents, siblings Colleen and Cal, and two grandsons, Hunter and Kit. She is survived by her children Brent (Linda), Brian (Tami), Blaine (Angel), Collette Scow, and Brady, 11 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.
The family would like to extend their thanks to Cherri Shively and the staff of Heritage Place and Envision Health Care for their compassionate care of Reta during her final years.
