Sharon Perrigo, longtime Viola resident, passed away Wednesday, November 17, 2021 in the comfort of her home. She was 81.

Sharon was born November 16, 1940 to Merrill and Flo Bohnenkamp in Carol, Iowa. 

Sharon moved to Princeton, Idaho with her mother and older sister when she was 8 years old.  There she met her future stepfather, Rollie Mendenhall.

Sharon attended school in Princeton and later in Moscow.  She met and married the light of her life and her “rock”, Russell (Buck) Perrigo, in Moscow. They were married on April 21, 1957 and started a family. They welcomed their first born daughter later that year. Two years later they welcomed twin daughters.  They were happily married for 64 years.  

She was a homemaker. Together, she and Buck ran their family business, Perrigo Trucking.  Her hobbies included the love of many treasured pets, camping, mushrooming, crocheting, gardening, canning, cooking and a love of watching a variety of birds that they fed.

Sharon’s legacy was her family.  She is survived by her loving husband, Russell (Buck) Perrigo, three daughters, Laura Erne of New Plymouth Idaho, Terri (Pat Dollar) & Gerri (Pat Garrett) of Moscow Idaho, a sister Gerrie Tenwick-Randall of Hayden Idaho, two nieces, eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren, 2 dogs and 2 cats.

She was preceded in death by her mother and stepfather.  She will have a close family service at a later date.
