Nancy A Perkins, age 77 of Cincinnati OH, passed away Thursday, February 6, 2020. A life filled with faith, love and family. She is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years Don Perkins. She is survived by her four children Jeff Perkins(Theresa), Kim O’Connor (Steve), Tim Perkins and Dan Perkins, her brother Ralph Roeder, 8 grand-children, 9 great grand-children and many beloved nieces, nephews and cousins. She was blessed with creativity and an artistic eye. Her talent was expressed in the Halloween costumes she made, the school projects she assisted with, the tailored outfits she created as a seamstress and the expression of beauty which she captured in her painting. She enjoyed celebrating every holiday and did so with wonderful displays and decorations. We will forever remember the fun and food that came with her family gatherings.
She was never one to boost and often times stood in the shadows cheering and encouraging others to reach for the stars. She was strong in her faith and led by example. From her we learned manners, compassion, kindness, self-discipline and our faith in God above. Under all turbulent or sad times we found our strength in her words and her hugs. In her last days she did not focus on her illness, rather she focused on family and bringing us together. Her final wish is for us to remain a family full of love, support, compassion and that we teach the importance of family to our children and their children to come. Visitation will be held from 6-8 PM on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at The Spring Grove Funeral Home, 4389 Spring Grove Ave, Cincinnati, in the comfort of the Willow Room within the funeral home. The Service to Celebrate the Life of Nancy Perkins will be conducted at 11 AM on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at The Spring Grove Funeral Home-Blue Spruce Chapel with Celebrant Courtney Kelly, officiating. She will be laid to rest next to her dear husband, Don, at Arlington Memorial Gardens. Online condolences may be shared to the family by visiting www.springgrove.org
