Memorial services for Claire Hodges Perry, who died last week in Connecticut, were held Thursday, March 6, in Rockdale, Texas, the home town where she lived most of her life with her husband, the late George Sessions Perry. Aside from being Perry's close associate and unofficial editor in his dazzling writing career, which won him unique fame as an immensely versatile Texan (novelist, playwright, foreign correspondent, brilliant journalist), Claire Perry was connected with the book world as a literary agent and free-lance editor. During the summer months, the Perrys lived in an old house they loved at Guilford, Connecticut, where she was an active supporter of the Guilford Free Library. Those wishing to make memorial donations should send them directly to the library at Guilford. Dallas Morning News. March 9, 1975.

A friend, Bill Cooke of the Rockdale Reporter, wrote that her body was cremated and her ashes returned to Rockdale for burial beside the writer to whom she had dedicated her life.
