April 13, 1935 - April 4, 2021

Rhoda Marie Perilli, “Ginger”, born April 13, 1935, left this world to be with our Lord on the most beautiful and holiest day, Easter Sunday, April 4th, 2021, in Oceanside, CA.

Ginger was a lifelong proud resident of Wheeling. She was a devoted wife, a homemaker, an exceptional loving cherished Mother as her family always remained paramount throughout her life. She loved life and was grateful for everything she was given by God, including her faith as a Catholic. She was a member of the Blessed Trinity Parish and later St. Alphonsus. She cherished her years and felt blessed by the kindness of living near beautiful neighbors and friends as they watched over her and her husband when her children could not be nearby.

Ginger was preceded in death by her husband, Silvio “Joe” Perilli in December 2016. She is survived by her three children, Victor T. Perilli, of Independence, MO; Diana E. Gavin, of Oceanside, CA, Paula J. Perilli, of Virginia Beach, VA; four grandchildren:  EricJohn Gavin, of Miami, FL, Shannon E. Gavin of Oceanside, CA, Antonio and Hannah G. Perilli of Independence, MO; and a dearly beloved sister, Grace Bisbing of Wyandotte, MI.

Funeral arrangements are with Altmeyer Funeral Home, Wheeling WV.  A memorial Mass will be held in Wheeling, WV, with the date to be determined.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Catholic Charities or to the Ohio County Wheeling SPCA.
