We gather today to give thanks for the life of Betty Jean “BP” Perry. A native of Greenville, South Carolina, she was born on June 2, 1955, to the late John William Perry and Christine Smith Perry. After her mother’s passing she was raised by a devoted stepmother, the late Lula Garrison Perry.
Betty Jean attended the public schools of Greenville County and was a graduate of Berea High School. She was employed with the Lear Corporation.
She was preceded in death by a sister, Faye Yvette Kirksey, and two brothers, William David Perry and Douglas Allen Perry.
Many fond and loving memories will be cherished always by her daughter, Octavia Perry of Greenville; a son, Willie (Crystal) Perry of Greenville; one sister, Dorothy Ann Duckett of Greenville; four grandchildren, Roshonques Perry, Tydrekius Perry, Autumn Perry and Jaceoron Perry; one great-grandchild, Anyla Johnson; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
