 Earlene was born June 9, 1935 to Elma Richardson Merkley and Earl Merkley in Jensen, Utah. She spent most of her younger days in Uinta County Bain milking cows and helping run the family farm. Her family later moved to Kamas where she graduated from South Summit High. While in high school she met the love of her life LaMar Perry. To this union 6 children were born. Earlene worked in many cleaning capacities and alongside her husband in his construction, excavation, and demolition business. She worked cleaning until she was 85 years old.. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and serviced in many callings. She was a strong , feisty, independent matriarch of the family and didn't want to rely on anyone .
