A graveside service is 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 29, at Oak Hill Cemetery, with Pastor Becky Lembke officiating. Shafer-Perfetti & Assalley Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements  

Mrs. Perkinson was born Aug. 29, 1925, at Brocton, the daughter of the late Roy and Oceola Cash Geiling. She married Eugene “Perk” Perkinson July 11, 1942, at St. Charles, Mo. He preceded her in death Jan. 4, 2013.

She was preceded in death by her; sister, Wanda Hill; brothers, Leroy and Marion Geiling; and sons-in-law, Ronald Molohon and Joe Rodden.

Mrs. Perkinson was a homemaker, and she assisted her husband with their family business, Perky Transit.  She was a devoted and active member of the First United Methodist Church in Taylorville, where she was a past-member of the Methodist Women and active in Sunday School.  In her younger years, she enjoyed bowling in the local leagues, flower gardening, and helping with the bus business and everyday duties.  Later in life, she loved attending exercise classes at the Senior Citizens Center. She was also an avid animal lover, taking in many strays and nursing them back to health.
