Carol A. Perkins (September 11, 1931 – September 30, 2021)
Carol A. Perkins (Kronka) of West Allis, age 90, passed away suddenly on September 30th, 2021 and is now resting peacefully with God and his angels in heaven. Our mother was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Beloved wife of the late Robert J. Perkins. Loving mother of Alison (Ken) Kortis and Michael (Holly) Perkins. Cherished grandmother of Connor, Savannah and Hannah. Dear sister of Dawn Suharski and the late Marce Rettke. Further survived by many dear family and friends.
Our mother loved attending church and sang in the church choir for more than 50 years. She enjoyed reading, watching movies, going out to eat and spending time with her loving family and friends. Our mother greatly enjoyed getting together with her close group of exercise friends, a friendship that’s lasted 25 years. She treasured the time spent with her sister Dawn and the laughter they shared reminiscing about the past. Our mother led a happy Christian life and everyone who met her adored her; she was beautiful inside and out. Most of all, our mother loved spending time with her children and their families, they were very precious to her.
We are very thankful and appreciative for all our close family and friends that celebrated our mother’s surprise 90th birthday party on September 17, 2021. Our mother was truly surprised and very happy. She said several times, “It was the best day of my life”.
Mom, we love you so very much. While your faith in God and wings were ready, our hearts and souls were not. You’ll be greatly missed and forever in our hearts. Thank you for being a loving, caring mother and great Christian role model. Give dad our love. We look forward to being with you again in eternity.
