Sherrill Rochelle Beckham Perry

July 28, 1937 ~ December 10, 2020 (age 83)


Sherrill Perry, 83, shrugged off the clutches of ALS on December 10, 2020 and entered into the presence of her Savior where there will be no more suffering.  She was born on July 28, 1937 to the late Harry H. and Juanita Beckham.

 She graduated from Greenbrier High School and Columbia Commercial College and held a Professional Executive Secretarial certificate from the University of South Carolina.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Huley A. Perry, Jr.; a son, James H. Perry (Janet); and a daughter, Sherrie Perry Feaster (Chuck). She is also survived by a brother, Harry J. Bechkam (Betty Jo); sisters, Alona Shook (Mike) and Josephine Beckham; 8 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. 

She is predeceased by a son, Huley A. “Zan” Perry, III, and a sister, Harriett “Bit” Thigpen. 

She retired from the Columbia Bank for Cooperatives and Midlands Technical College.  She was led daily by her Christian faith.  She taught Sunday School for over 60 years and was a 28-year member of Trinity Bible Fellowship, a weekly Christian Prison Ministry which she co-founded.  She was the embodiment of Christian Love and reached out to anyone with a need in their lives.

Thanks and gratitude are extended to caregivers Bethany Bennett and “Von” Downing-Currie.  Addition thanks to “special sister” Janet Davis who worked with Sherrie in providing personal care to Sherrill.
