Margaret Mary Perkett, a longtime resident of Chapel Hill, NC passed away on August 13, 2023. A woman of very strong faith, Margaret was an active member of the St. Thomas More, Catholic Church and a much-loved matriarch of her family. Born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1924, Margaret spent a large part of her long life in and around New York City.
She was predeceased by her loving husband, Jack Perkett, and was a mother to Eileen (Michael) Welsh of Durham, NC, Margaret (Wayne) Lee of Chapel Hill, NC and John (Donna Ryan) Perkett of Rockville Centre, NY. She was the proud grandmother of Thomas (Shiela Adriano) Lee of Durham, NC, Patrick Welsh of Baltimore, MD and Brendan Welsh of Washington, DC.
Faith and family were the pillars of her life, and she will be missed by all who knew her.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Thomas More Church, Chapel Hill, in the near future.
