Tolt Congregational Church

Beverly was born on August 27, 1919 in Everett, Washington to Leslie and Elsie Hunsaker. Like many families during the Northwest’s logging era, her dad worked in the woods. When he was injured in a logging accident her mother went to work as a waitress and was the breadwinner for the next five years. Life was challenging in the time of the depression. Parents, moving to where jobs were, found children, like Bev, changing schools. Not easy being the new kid, but she made friends. She learned to play piano and enjoyed playing throughout her life.
In 1938, she met and married Jack Perrigoue. He also grew up in a logging family and as luck would have it – played drums. They were a musical duo playing for dances and special events.Their son, Denny, also plays drums and daughter, Jackie, plays piano. Hard work, many friends, family and music described Jack and Bev’s life as they raised their family in Carnation, WA.
Bev will always be remembered as a kind, loving and understanding woman. Beverly passed away on April 1, 2016 at the Regency Care Center in Monroe.
She is survived by her son, Denny Perrigoue; daughter, Jackie Perrigoue, granddaughters; Shelby (Jon) Quilliam, Paula (Leah Waugh) Starr, Penny (Bradley Enghaus) Kamplain; grandson, Jeff Perrigoue; brother, Dale Sprague; five great grandsons and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial celebration of her life will be held Saturday, April 23rd at 1:00pm at Tolt Congregational Church, 4851 Tolt Ave, Carnation, Washington.
