Emily Perry Obituary

Lake Waccamaw, NC

Emily Rebecca Perry, 34, passed away at her home Saturday, January 27, 2024. She resided in Lake Waccamaw, NC.

Emily was born in Eugene, OR, July 8th, 1989. She is survived by her father Gordon R. Perry of Woodland Park, CO, her mother Martha J. Graham of Beaufort, NC, her brother Adam C. Perry of Leadville, CO, as well as her grandmother Jeanne A. Mays of Morehead City, NC.

At the age of 3, Emily's family moved to Woodland Park Colorado, where she completed K - 12. She then joined the US Navy where she received an honorable discharge after 4 years of active-duty service. She furthered her education in environmental sciences where she received her BS degree. She began a career as a State Park Ranger in Lake Waccamaw after completing 5 months of basic law enforcement training in the spring of 2023.

Emily held a soft spot in her heart for animals, children, and nature. She also had a passion for the ocean, lighthouses, and sea turtles.

Emily was an active reservist while she maintained a full-time position as a State Park Ranger. She was highly devoted and dedicated to her job, her friends and family. Her dog Maxi was her best friend. She will remain loved by many and sorely missed by all she touched.
