To know her is to love her. Passionate and gracious Georgia Lyn Schultz Perry, passed away on February 7th, 2021 after a valiant battle with cancer. Georgia was born in Ventura, CA on May 11, 1954 to Kathryn Anne Schultz and Former Ventura City Fire Chief Dean Schultz.
She graduated from Ventura High School in 1973 and remained a loyal Cougar fan throughout her life. She married her husband, Dennis Keith Perry in Somis CA, 1985, and their union blessed them with two sons, James Dean Perry and George Canning Perry.
Georgia was a volunteer extraordinaire in various organizations that promoted and honored all people. She was active in NAMI of Ventura County, NCL Juniors, Las Patronas Auxiliary, Ventura High School Boosters, Ventura Unified School Attendance Review Board and the Ventura Education Partnership. Georgia brought her flair and passion into every organization as she advocated and worked for the dignity and well- being of others. Georgia was honored by the Ventura Education Partnership as Volunteer of the Year in 2016 for her far-reaching contributions. Georgia loved all children and youth, and devoted her life to their education and wellbeing as a Montessori teacher and in active support of public education. She truly loved people and enjoyed her retail sales opportunities to share with, and benefit others. When Georgia was in the room, there was joy, flair, style and laughter. Her inner and outer beauty were undeniable and she shared that beauty with everyone she met. Georgia was a lover of hearts… heart jewelry always adorned her. Today our hearts are broken, but tomorrow we will find her in the laughter of friends, the smiles of children, the kindness of strangers, and the brilliance of sunsets and our hearts will be full once again.
Georgia is survived by her mother Kathryn Schultz, husband Dennis Perry, son James Dean (JD) Perry, and brothers, Alan Karl Schultz and Eric Dean Schultz. She is preceded by her father Dean Schultz and her beloved son, George Perry. In addition to her beloved family, Georgia is mourned by an entire community who are better because she was here. Just an old sweet song, keeps Georgia on our mind… and forever in our hearts.
A celebration of life will be held when we all can gather safely. Georgia requested any memorial donations that you consider Turning Point Foundation’s, Growing Works Nursery; NAMI of Ventura County; or your favorite charity.
~ Afterglow ~
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
