Sue (Ursula), Perra, age 87 of Waverly, Minnesota passed away Monday, June 4, 2012. Born on December 13, 1924 to Albina and Joseph Antil, she was the oldest of three girls, with five brothers. As a young, single girl she worked at the Maple Lake drug store and waitressed at Ogle’s Café in Waverly. She met Ed Perra of Waverly and they were married on September 25, 1946. Their nearly 66 years of marriage was spent working the Perra family farm and raising a family of six. Sue was a hard worker and took great pride in working the land and tending the dairy herd side by side with Ed. She is preceded in death by her parents, brothers: Vic, Jimmy, Art, Jerry and Frank; and daughter Elaine Luhman. She is survived by devoted spouse, Ed; sons Tom, Jerry and Frank (Zoila); daughters Lu Ann (Al) and Mary (Francis); grandchildren: Joe, Mark (Jessica), Sarah, Jessica (Jason); Dylan, Drake, Belle, Fred, Izzy, Jennifer, Dana (Jeff); 12 great grandchildren; siblings Bea, Tess and Larry; and special friend of the family, Doug Braden.
Sue loved people and took interest in anyone she came in contact with. She enjoyed trips to town, meeting friends at the grocery store, getting together with special girlfriends, impromptu coffee dates, helping neighbors, and was always ready to laugh and have fun. Her energy was endless, her smile was infectious. Most of all, she loved her family and time spent with her children and their families – especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a special wife, sister, mother ,mother–in law, grandmother, aunt, and a loyal friend. Her passing leaves a void that can only be filled by countless memories of her kindness and generous nature.
