Celebrating the life of Ella Jane Perry
Be the first to share your favorite memory, photo or story of Ella. This memorial page is dedicated for family, friends and future generations to celebrate the life of their loved one.
We ask on behalf of the family that you keep your comments uplifting and appropriate to help all who come here to find comfort and healing.
Ella received her education in the Nottoway County public schools. At an early age she was baptized and became a member of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church. Ella enjoyed music and singing and was a member of the senior choir.
Ella worked various jobs in this community and then relocated to Richmond where she later retired.
Ella was a loving and caring person who adored children and always did whatever she could for family and friends. Whenever she was around she always had a joke to tell to put a smile on your face. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her, but we find comfort in knowing God’s will has been done.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, James and Richard and three sisters, Helen, Mary and Rosa.
She leaves to cherish precious memories: a loving daughter, Evelyn Robinson (Harold) of Richmond, VA; one devoted grandson, Michael of Richmond, VA; four great grandchildren, Michael Jr., Iveion, Trevell, and Asia all of Richmond, VA; two brothers, Isaac and Willie Perry of Crewe, VA; one sister-in-law, Juanita of Crewe, VA; two nephews, Herman and Henry; eight nieces, Mary, Clementine, Euphesenia, Alicia, Sandra, Angela, Cotrina and Tarlisaer; several great nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends. One devoted friend, Tashawnda Green.
