Katie Frances Perkins

Katie Frances Perkins, daughter of the late William Sam Harris and the late Eva Mae was born on November 27, 1926 in Durham, N.C. She entered into eternal rest on Thursday, October 3, 2019 at her home.
She received her education in Durham City Public Schools and graduated from Hillside H.S. in 1944. Sister Perkins was united in marriage to the late John H. Perkins, who preceded her in death on November 17, 1999.
In 1957 Sis. Perkins, her husband and two daughters relocated to New York City. She worked at various jobs until retiring. Sis. Perkins joined the Guiding Light Bethlehem Eastern Star in 1980, and served as a faithful matron for five years (1900-1995). On September 13, 1981, she joined Greater File Chapel B.C. after attending a few services with her daughter. She faithfully served on the Ushers’ Ministry for 25 years.
Sister Perkins was honored as a “Mother Dear” on April 28, 2019. She was quiet, loving, and devoted sister, aunt, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. God was her sustainer and comforter.
She loved her late Pastor, Rev. Dr. Jasper Simmons, her Pastor, Rev. Geraldine L. Harris, and her church family. She was saddened when her health began to fail, and she could not attend Rev. Harris installation service as new pastor and some of her anniversary celebrations, as well as attend church regularly.
She leaves to cherish her memory: two daughters, Deaconess Thomasene Conelly (Deacon Emeritus Luey) and Barbara Butler; seven grandchildren, Monique (Cyrano), Jenea (Kasien), Ebony (Pedro), Lawrence, Brian, Edward, and Gladys; one sister, Eva Mae Campbell of Durham, N.C.; a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousin, friends and her dear friend, Sister Louise Fincher.
