In Loving Memory

Patty Lynn Perkins of Waynesville, North Carolina was born July 27, 1971 in Owosso, Michigan to Julie Ann Harding and Gary Martin. 

Patty had an incredible way of getting everyone around her to love her. Her beautiful heart was open to everyone around her and she had a smile that radiated her joy she had for life. She was an avid food lover that couldn't get enough of watching cooking and baking shows and collecting recipes. She liked to sit quietly and crochet. And she loved to talk, a lot. To anybody about anything. She saw to it that people knew, no matter what the hour, that she always had time to listen. If you were brave enough to ask for her opinion, you had better be prepared for her answer- sugar coating was not part of the program… and we loved her all the more for it. The Lord loved her too- He showed us all that in the way He called her home, she went the most beautiful way possible. She went to sleep here with us, and woke with the angels the morning of September 14, 2021.

Patty is survived by her mother, Julie Harding; daughter, Krystal Martin; granddaughter, Bailey; brothers and sisters, Jimmy Palmeri, Eddie Fisher, Erica Arnold, Philip Fisher, and sisters, Heather and Jessica; grandmother, Shirley Harding and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and extended family.

A funeral service to honor and remember the life of Patty will be held at 3:00 pm, Saturday, September 18, 2021 in the chapel of Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service. The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service. Bishop Larson will be officiating the service.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for Patty Lynn Perkins and her family.

The live stream of the funeral service is available here.
