PERRINE
Lucey Mae Allen Perrine, born a Choctaw Indian Maiden, July 15, 1907 in Grove Springs, Okla., the second child of Lillie Mae and Samuel W. Allen. She graduated from Grove High School, attended N.E.O. A&M, Miami, Okla.; Oklahoma Womens College in Chickasha, Okla.; Oklahoma A&M, Stillwater, Okla. for her home economics training. She married George Alvin "Al" Perrine of Ft. Scott, Kan. on May 26, 1929. Mrs. Perrine actively assisted Al in their development of Allens Store of Grove, Okla. (sold to Ramsey's in 1959). They moved to Houston where Al joined the Small Business Adminstration while Lucy Mae participated in the Glenbrook Chapter of the Houston Garden Club, winning honors for her unique floral arrangements. Mrs. Perrine and her husband, Al, were active members of Glenbrook United Methodist Church.
She was an excellent cook and pleased the pallets of such dignataries as George and Barbara Bush, Developer Del West, Baseball greats, Sam Musial, Enos Slaughter, Ken Boyer and Joe Garageola when Al would "just drop in" with such noteable guests. In 1978, Al retired from the SBA and they moved to Plano to start their retired life close to their only child, son, Sam A. Perrine. Lucy Mae and Al's marriage was a long and highly devoted one. She assumed little and contributed extensively to the development of projects she and her partner of 50 years attained. She loved all, was outspoken and gleaned everything she could from life while giving more than she received. This truth can be attested by all who had the privilege of knowing and loving her. Lucy was an excellent speech writer and often expressed that "old age is not all we dream it to be." She felt left out as most of her friends and peers had departed earlier in life. An avid baseball fan to the end, she watched television from her hospital bed in Plano, following hip surgery on June 8, 1999 and was mending well when her congenital heart condition would not permit her to continue this life. She joined Al, who had preceded her in death in April 1979 and will be missed by all who had the opportunity to be a part of her life. Lucy Mae is survived by her son, Sam Perrine and his wife, Ginny of Plano; granddaughters, Laura Cravy and Caprice Alvarado; great-grandsons, Jason Cravy, Joshua Alvarado; great-granddaughter, Brenna Cravy; great-great grandson, Tynan Cravy; nieces, Mary Lou Ille, Melvina Johnston; nephew, Jack M. Allen and numerous step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held 7 p.m. Thursday, July 15, 1999 at First United Methodist Church of Plano; her life and 92nd birthday will be celebrated. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the First United Methodist Church of Plano "Land of Promise" or the American Heart Association.
