4th Governor of Florida
Gainesville Daily Sun, Gainesville, Fla., Friday 23 Feb. 1912
Miss Sallie PERRY of Rochelle died Thursday
" Miss Sallie PERRY of Rochelle died at her home in that place Thursday at 12:30 p.m. after an illness extending over a period of about two years, but which only assumed serious proportions a few months since. For a long time Miss PERRY had been troubled with rheumatism, and although a stay of several weeks at Hot Springs, Ark., the past summer seemed to improve her condition, a complication of ailments after her return made her recovery impossible.
Deceased was about 65 years of age and had resided at Rochelle nearly all her life. She was a daughter of Governor M. S. PERRY, who served as Florida's chief executive from 1857-1861 and Marth Perry Institute, the public school at Rochelle, was thus named in honor of her mother. Miss PERRY was a member of the Methodist Church and lived a consistent Christian life. She had many friends in this city and throughout the State who will learn of her demise with much regret.
Deceased was conscious almost to the end and it is consoling to those who loved her to know that she was prepared to go. Her cousin, Miss Fannie BAUSKETT of Camden, S.C. was with Miss PERRY during the last weeks of her illness.
The deceased is survived by a number of distant relatives, but none nearer that cousin, the members of her immediate family having preceeded her to the grave many years since.
The funeral will be conducted from the home at Rochelle at 11:30 o'clock this morning, interment to be made int he family lot at Oak Ridge Cemetery.
A number of Gainesville friends of deceased will atten the funeral service."
