They lived in South Dakota most of their married life, moving with Carl�s employment until he retired in 1988. They moved to Missouri and worked for their son, Greg, until his health failed in 1997. They moved to Mankato, MN, and lived there until November 2004 when Percy moved to Macon, MO, and resided there until her death.

From this union came two children, Greg and his wife Cyndi of Macon, MO, and Sandra Berglund of N. Mankato, MN. Percy cherished her five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Carl, in 2002 and one great-grandchild.

Percy was a great mother and grandmother, she loved her children and grandchildren and she loved her life in Macon, her First Baptist Church family and Sunday school class. She will be sorely missed by family and friends.
