Violet Perez

In Loving Memory

Perez, Violet Marie

Violet Marie Perez passed peacefully in the arms of her parents on the evening of January 5, 2024.  She was born that morning at 1:17 a.m.   She weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces and was 18.75 inches long.  Violet’s family was blessed with nearly 17 hours with Violet, bringing them great joy and peace, before she went to be with the Lord at 5:50 p.m. just as the snow began to fall.

Violet was the precious daughter of Andrew and Sally (Sinclair) Perez, beloved younger sister to Michael and Santino Perez, cherished granddaughter of John and Susan (Schaller) Sinclair and Dave and Rebecca (Oswald) Perez, and beloved niece and cousin to many.  During her short time with us, she was loved deeply by family and friends. Her life is indeed a gift to be held in our hearts forever.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, January 19, 2024 at 10:00 A.M. at St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, 4900 Ringer Road, Saint Louis, Missouri 63129.

  1. Drew & Sally,
    So sorry for your loss. I know your pain, as Tina and I lost our sweet Mireya after 8 short hours. I don’t understand it all, but I do believe God has a plan and now you have a Saint of your very own. The Sinclair’s, Detweiler’s, and especially the Godfrey’s are great families to provide you with loving support you need at this time. We love you and will keep you in our prayers.
    Danny & Tina Dell

  2. Sally – I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m not going to pretend to know what you’re going through, but I wanted you to know that I’m thinking of you and praying for you and your family.

  3. I was so sorry to hear this news, My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. Nothing can prepare you for the loss of your child.

  4. Oh mercy… of course we are aware that all of us grieve differently and we honestly do not know what to say at this ultimate tragedy moment… but we must try. To pause for this highly impacted moment… it takes our breath away, and we pray for the proper words to even attempt to say. Mere words can’t express caring & loving hearts that are filled with such a painful departure… why was such a beautiful new born taken from earth’s gravity. We are broken and poured out.
    We are so confused along with you at all the “why, why, why’s.” Mercy! What mighty strength your family has been bonded, instilled & filled with upon such shocking news. It’s all so raw… just know looking at you from the outside… all of you are beyond amazing and so much stronger than most who have never known such love. We are so very sorry and our family sends this sincere heartfelt condolence. This is huge and probably one of the biggest sadness to endure. We can’t think of anything above this angst level. But yet… Violet’s Mommy & Daddy, could not have given Violet Marie a more perfect soul-filled name. It’s a big WOW! Her face wears that name with such tenacity and greatness.
    We are amazed you were able to know instinctively her forever known name so perfectly. A miracle & brilliant revelation. . To Violet’s parents, siblings, grandparents, aunties & uncles, cousins and caring friends… We pray that is comforting inside all of you since it brings comfort to all of us who are too lost-for-the-correct-words to express our shear awkwardness on what to convey. Please just allow this to absorb into your loving parents but painfully heavy-hearts…Violet has positively impacted many outsiders (like us) hearts and our life are forever changed for how she endured in only one day more than most of us are able to handle in a full life-time. But know we pray you allow us to do this difficult moment with you to support your beautiful family. We know nothing we say can heal and bring Violet back to this messed up earth… but with each inhale and exhale breath all of you take, know Violet’s courage and yours surrounds all of us. Someway… somehow… all of Violet’s loved ones, will indeed dance with her on the other side. Onward in Jesus loving arms.
