Lenora Lucille Burnett Perry died on March 25, 2021. She was born on November 29, 1922 in Suwanee, Georgia.
Lenora passed as she lived, on her own terms - at peace with God in her own home surrounded by those who loved her. She will be sorely missed for her joy, her love of life, her beauty, her strength and her style.
She loved travel, music, theatre, books, shopping and, most of all, her family. She was also everyone’s “Gonny,” as she was known to her family and many friends.
Lenora belonged to the Cornelia Garden Club, loved flowers and plants, especially lilies and daffodils and made beautiful arrangements of them. She was a member of the Tomochichi Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), the Three Arts Club, a lifelong Friend of the Cornelia Library, and avid bridge player who received her Life Master certificate.
She was the daughter of James Leonard Burnett and Lenora Roberts Burnett, both of Suwanee. Lenora is survived by her sons Michael Burnett Perry (his wife Celenda) and by David Leonard Perry (his wife Yadira) as well as 13 grandchildren: Henry “Hap”, Brian, Lenora, Kimberly Claire “KC” (her husband Kurt), David Jr., Jason, Georgia, Teal, Alexander, Katherine (her wife Suli), Ligia (her husband Gus), Zachary and Beatrice. She is also survived by her 12 great-grandchildren – Chase, Andres, Peighton, Karson, Kaylen, Henry, Santiago, Paxton, AJ, Micaela, Carver and Briana as well as her close niece Kim (her husband Ellis) and a multitude of extended family, friends, and other admirers. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Henry H Perry, her oldest son, Henry Alan Perry and her grandson John Meriwether Perry.
