Obituaries — Lucille Jacobs Perry and Fred Ray Perry


Years ago Fred Ray Perry and his wife Lucille Jacobs Perry of South Lake Tahoe expressed their wishes that no public notice be made of their deaths. However, their loving family respectfully makes this simple notice for the benefit of friends, neighbors and other “oldtimers.”

Lucille Jacobs Perry was born May 21, 1908, and died Aug. 12, 2002, at Barton Memorial Hospital from complications of old age. Fred Ray Perry was born Dec. 4, 1909, and died Nov. 4, 1993, at St. Mary’s Hospital, Reno, Nev., following a heart attack.

Mr. and Mrs. Perry moved to Stateline, Calif., from Truckee, Calif., in 1942. In 1952 they moved to Meyers, Calif., and in 1966 they built their home on the Upper Truckee River at the foot of Luther Pass, where they lived for the rest of their lives. They were both descendants of California pioneers, Mrs. Perry’s grandparents having settled in Siskiyou and Lassen counties, and Mr. Perry’s grandfather in El Dorado County. They believed themselves very fortunate to be at Lake Tahoe and never considered living elsewhere. Throughout their lives here they enjoyed friendships and participated frequently in the activities of the community.

They are survived by daughter, Linda Perry Goldsmith of Glenbrook, Nev., and grandchildren, John P. Goldsmith of Santa Monica, Calif., Robert G. Goldsmith of Irvine, Calif., and Lynne A. Goldsmith of Glenbrook.

At an as-yet undetermined date, the family will hold a private service at the gravesite where Mr. and Mrs. Perry are buried at Happy Homestead Cemetery.
