Olga Wagner Perry

August 14, 1939 — February 19, 2020

Olga (Ollie) Perry, 80, of Mirror Lake died Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at home peacefully in her sleep. Ollie was born on August 14, 1939 in Philadelphia, PA. She grew up in the Philadelphia area where she attended and graduated from Germantown Friends School. She then attended Mary Washington and the University of Virginia where she earned her nursing degree. Ollie met the love of her life, Tom Perry, while working and living in Washington DC. They were married on May 25, 1963. Ollie and Tom settled down in Alexandria, Virginia where they lived for over 40 years and raised their four children. Ollie was an amazing wife and mother who spent her time doing everything for her family and friends. Their house was the house all the neighborhood kids would hang out at. Ollie was a “second mom” to many. In 1992 Ollie and Tom bought a house on Mirror Lake where they had vacationed many times while the kids were growing up. They loved it so much up here that they decided to retire here and now live on Mirror Lake full time. Ollie was active in the community working for many years with Tom organizing and running the Children’s Toy Tent for the Huggins Hospital Street Fair. She was also a member of The Hikers and for several years was on the Board of the Libby Museum. Ollie’s greatest joys were her family and friends. She loved to cook and was well known for her amazing appetizers and snacks. Everyone has a recipe from Ollie! She loved cooking with her grandchildren, and no one ever went hungry when visiting. Another thing Ollie enjoyed was reading and especially reading to her grandchildren. Through the years other things Ollie loved to do were play tennis, garden, knit, go to the beach with family, play cards and games, do puzzles, watch cooking shows and try new recipes out on Tom. Ollie is survived by her beloved husband Tom, their four children: daughter Jill Chastain and husband Chaz of Springfield, VA; son Drs. Jeff Perry and wife Gina of York, PA; daughter Lee Orr and husband Todd of Seminole, FL and daughter Lynn Heaton of Valrico, FL. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren: Nate, Nick, Shelby, Madison, Austin, Sawyer and Ava. Ollie will be missed by many extended family members and friends from all over the country.
