Kim L. Perry
Kim L. Perry, age 60 of Forsyth, Missouri died on Feb 2, 2021 of COVID-19.
I didn't want to go out like this. So much suffering and pain. From the early days I took COVID-19 very seriously, followed the guidelines and yet it still got into my house where I thought I was safe. It infected all 3 members of my family, but it took my life. I had so much to live for and so many dreams for my future.
My message to others is to take this seriously. These new variances are even more contagious and deadly than ever. Wear 2 masks, social distance, wash your hands and know where your family members have been if in public.
I am the daughter of Kenneth R. Dysart and Mary Taylor-Parr who preceded my death.
I am survived by my husband of 22 years, Rick Perry. My soulmate, my strong man, I will love you forever; my son, Erik Rowe of Oregon. Know I am with you every day of your life; my twin sister, Karen Palone of Forsyth, MO. I am sorry to leave you alone (and I know this wasn't our plan) but I'll save a beautiful place for you in heaven; sister, Sue (Ed) Stiles of Camarillo, CA. I hope you know how important you were in my life; my brother, Kenneth Dysart of Somis, CA. I always thought we would have time to fix things, I'm sorry we did not.
Daughters: Emily (Artie) Severa of Portsmouth, RI and Krista Roy of Middletown, RI. You've both loved me as much as I've loved you. Thank you for that; my niece, Danielle Palone of Maui, Hawaii. I loved you deeply and wish we had more time together, please take care of your mom; my grandchildren: Kelsey, Lily, and Benjamin who although there were many
miles between us, I always kept you close to my heart; to my friends in Port Hueneme and Camarillo, CA where I grew up I will cherish the good times, the laughter, and love we all shared. So many wonderful memories.
There will be a celebration of life planned for a later time. Contributions can be made by calling Governor Parson's office at 573-751-3222 to encourage him to implement a more effective vaccine distribution plan.
Missouri has the lowest vaccine rate of the 50 states.
