Geraldine Perilloux Carter
Geraldine Perilloux Carter passed away on Saturday, June 27, 2020 in Covington, LA. She was born on July 1, 1934 in Madisonville, LA to the late Ralph Joseph Perilloux and Louise Marie LeBlanc Perilloux.
Gerry was the beloved wife of the late Sidney Lane Carter for 47 years. She was the loving mother of James L. Carter (Jasmin), Pam C. Edwards (the late Fred), Joseph D. Carter (Gemma), Denise C. Gottschalck (Mike), Dennis R. Carter (Darryl), Dean S. Carter (Nannette), Hugh B. Carter, Todd B. Carter (Virginia), the late Glenn Carter, and Jay A. Carter. Gerry was very proud of her 21 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. She was the sister of Robert J. Perilloux, the late James J. Perilloux, Ralph J. Perilloux, Leona P. McCarroll, and Margie P. McIntyre.
Gerry worked for St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office and retired as a staff sergeant after 16 years of service. She had more patience than most raising ten kids. We will always wonder how she managed to keep her mind through wild animals indoors and neighbors over all the time. From sewing all the kid’s clothes and picking up after everyone to preparing food for the family and having a green thumb, she was versatile, knowledgeable, caring, and an extremely hard worker. Gerry warned us all, “You’ll never find another like me.” and she was so right. She will be dearly missed.
