New London - It is with great sadness that the Perkins family announces the passing of Valerie Perkins, 83, on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 63 years, Karlton Perkins, who passed in 2012.

Valerie will be lovingly remembered by her children, Karlton and his wife, Robin, Lynn and Tim Perkins. Val will be fondly remembered by her six grandchildren, Heather, Chad, Kyle, Gene, Jordan and Tyler. Val also had six great-granddaughters, Liliana, Amelia, Kennley, Hannah, Penelope, and Piper.

She was also predeceased by her brothers, Ronald and Russell Cavanaugh; and sister, June Beckwith.

A native of New London, Valerie loved life. She loved spending quality time with family and friends. She enjoyed walking, staying fit and was known for her flare for fashion. She truly loved taking rides in the countryside with her late husband who enjoyed antiquing. Val made the most of an opportunity with bags packed, whether it be a dinner at the casino or a trip to Florida. She just loved to have a good time.

Calling hours and funeral services will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, Feb. 23 2018, at the Thomas L. Neilan & Sons Funeral Home, 12 Ocean Ave., New London. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m., in St. Joseph Church. Interment will follow in the family plot at Saint Mary Cemetery, New London.

If you desire, a memorial donations in memory of Valerie may be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation, P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741 for Parkinsons research.
