HELPER/PARKER, Ariz.- Carole Irene Perrero, 67, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away peacefully Jan. 30, 2011, in the warmth of the Arizona sun.
Carole was born on January 12, 1944, in Somerset, Colorado, to Emmett Franklin (Mac) and Dora Mae McFadden.
She married the love of her life, Tom Perrero, Jr. on May 1, 1965.
Carole enjoyed boating and camping. Later in life, she felt brave and began jeep riding. She was an artist who loved oil painting, pastels and coloring with her grandchildren. Carole was also a talented pianist. Gardening and watching the quail and hummingbirds were her joys of summer. Pepsi was her favorite drink, no wait it was Coke, no Pepsi, no Coke.
She is survived by her husband, Tom Perrero; two daughters, Monica Perrero and Tiffany (Lin) Hsu; 6 grandchildren; mother-in-law, Rose Perrero; brother, Jim McFadden; brother in law and sister-in-law Tom and Bernadette Paluso; aunt, Betty Goldrick; and many friends who have been more like family.
Celebrations of life will be held in the spring in Helper and Salt Lake City. There will also be a celebration of life in Parker, Ariz., in February.
For me, please, do not cry, Now I live with God, on high.My spirit you will see, In the breeze that rustles through the trees.And hear my laugh in the quail that run, Across the field in the morning sun. I am free and peaceful; a desert rain, Never more shall I feel pain.
For additional information, please email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Carole's name to St. Anthony's Parish 5 South Main, Helper, 84526.
