CLEVELAND – Mother Mary Angela Perry, PCPA, 92, a beloved religious superior of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration Monastery in Cleveland, and later in Washington, DC, spent Sunday June 6, 2021, the solemnity of the Corpus peacefully Christi.
Preceded in death by her dear parents, John and Ruby Tisone Perry Sr., and her brothers, Louis (Marietta) Perry and John (Christine) Perry Jr., she is survived by her brother, Anthony (Harriet) Perry, and many nieces and nephews.
Born January 20, 1929 in Hubbard, Mother Mary Angela entered the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration in Cleveland on March 25, 1949, made her religious profession on October 19, 1950, and was blessed with 70 years of vows. . . She served many years as the religious superior of the monasteries in Cleveland and Washington, DC, and also brought her skills over the years as a sacristan, seamstress of church garments, laundering, and was an excellent cook.
Mother Mary Angela cherished her family and spoke lovingly about each of them. Above all, she cherished her Eucharistic vocation and found her joy in serving the Lord and her religious community of sisters, with all her heart, energy and capacity. We have always found in her a warm, caring, compassionate spirit, open to all and wise in her advice and encouragement.
Mother Marie-Ange played a decisive role in the reopening of the founding monastery of the PCPA Order in Troyes, France.
