Lennes M. (Hile) Perry passed from this world into God’s hands on May 24th at 11:11 a.m. at her home in Grapevine, Texas, surrounded by family. Lennes is preceded in death by her grandparents, Carl A. and Eva B. (Sage) Luthi and John E. and Jennie C. (Efaw) Hile, sister Carleta K. Hile, and her parents Lester K. and T. Mardell (Luthi) Hile. Survivors include her husband Greg Perry, son Jason Lord, Grapevine, Texas, son Jarrod (wife-Allison) Lord, Lutz, Florida, and grandchildren Sydney, Caroline, and Andrew. Other survivors include sister Teresa (husband-Steve) Oliver, Lawrence, KS, brother Ken Hile, Lawrence, KS, sister Mavis (husband-Bob) Cockrell, Topeka, KS, niece Cherie (Tyler) Hayes, Monett, MO, nephew Aaron Cockrell, Topeka, KS, and great nieces and nephews Alexa, Lily, River, and Axel.

Lennes was a faithful servant and great example of God’s love, giving her time and energy, always a champion to those in need. Children and animals especially benefited from her loving and caring nature; she was truly selfless in all her actions. Lennes lived a full, multifaceted life, including her absolute love for her two “boys” and her three grandchildren. She also loved traveling, volunteering, collecting, sewing, decorating, reading, shopping, and cooking. Lennes was always busy, accomplishing almost anything she put her mind to.

Lennes was a 1970 graduate of Emporia High School in Emporia, KS, and a 1972 graduate of Phillips Junior College in Gulfport, Mississippi. Lennes enjoyed a career with Federal Civil Service from 1982 until 2015, working in Denver, CO, San Antonio, TX, Hickam AFB, HI, and Fort Worth, TX, finally retiring from her last position at USDA-NRCS-NCGC in Fort Worth. Most of her federal civil service career was working for the military. The highlight of her career was serving as the executive secretary to Brigadier General Eichmann, Logistics Director for Pacific Air Command at Hickam AFB. General Eichmann thought so much of Lennes that he secured one of the United States flags flown over the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1992 and presented it to Lennes on her departure from Hawaii. In her volunteer life, Lennes again served the military, serving for many years with Carswell Family Guardians, a volunteer organization dedicated to serving the 136th Airlift Wing and ensuring the family members of Air National Guard members had a support system when members were deployed. Lennes served on state-wide boards to support both Air and Army National Guard members, and was also selected for travel to Washington DC for training. The Adjutant General of Texas presented Lennes with the Family Spirit Award in 2001.

A graveside service will be conducted June 14, 11 a.m. at the Lamont Apostolic Cemetery, Lamont, KS. In lieu of plants or flowers memorial contributions can be made in Lennes’s name to Carswell Family Guardians.
