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.

her three children, Victor T. Perilli, of Independence, MO; Diana E. Gavin, of Oceanside, CA, Paula J.
