Obituary of Lila Black Perez

ROCKLEDGE- Lila Jo Perez passed quietly on the evening on 10/25/2020 at Viera Hospital. She was born on October 2, 1941 in Fort Payne, AL, the daughter of Ernest Linzie Black and Virginia Girlie (Dukes) Black.

Lila graduated from Orange County Public Schools and had a long career as an Executive Secretary with Harris Corporation.

Lila married Richard John Perez on December 23, 1962 and they celebrated 29 years together and three children, Ramona, Adam and Victoria.

Lila was a strong lady-a true fighter- with an abundance of love in her heart. She enjoyed travelling, near and abroad, cooking and art but found her deepest joy in time spent surrounded by family and friends.

Throughout her 17-year battle with Multiple Myeloma, Lila never lost her zest and love for life. Her smile and laughter could light up the room and it is the beautiful memories of her amazing life that provides comfort and strength to those left behind.

When Lila entered Heaven on October 25, 2020, we know that she was greeted by her husband and soulmate Richard and, at long last, they were together once again.

In addition to her parents Ernest L Black and Virginia G Black, Lila was predeceased by her husband Richard John Perez in 1991.
