A resilient woman, Mrs. Day was born November 12, 1922, and raised in the Ozarks until she moved to California as a child in a Model T Ford during the dust bowl. Her life was a full one of many travels and experiences. After traveling to all four corners of the United States with her husband, who was an Officer of the Navy, they settled in the mountains of her forefathers.

Day; sister, RoseMarie and brother-in-law, Pete Pelucca; parents, Albert and Pearl (Jones) Rumley; grandchild, Jennifer Peery; and the many that have been a part of her life. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Victoria and Dexter Scott Peery; grandchildren, Rose C. Peery Sawyer and husband, John D. Sawyer; Susan M. Peery; Emily A. Peery, and Andrew S. Peery; great-grandson, Jennings Day Peery Sawyer. Graveside services will be 11 a.m. Saturday, September 1, 2012, at Grandview Cemetery, 2304 Tuckaleechee Pike, Maryville, with the Rev.
