Karen Jean (Blake) Densmore, age 76, of Perry, passed away Thursday, May 14, 2020, at home, surrounded by loved ones. She was born February 3, 1944, in Royal Oak, MI, the daughter of John L. and Elizabeth M. (Perkins) Beach. She married Donald J. “Don” Densmore on September 12, 2004. Karen was a retired secretary, having worked for Leaderdogs for the Blind. Her greatest joy was spending time outdoors creating beauty in her gardens and all who passed by enjoyed their breathtaking gardens and landscape. She was a lover of Jesus, active with her church family of Perry First Baptist. She is survived by her husband, Don; daughter, Tammy L. (Bartlett) Ward; son, William D. (Tracy) Blake; niece, Debbie Buckner; step-daughters, Jane A. (David) Steger, Carole (James) Cox, Diane M. (Scot Stone) Brown; step-sons, Richard D. (Mary) Densmore, Thomas M. (Marisue) Densmore, Jonathan T. (Wendy) Densmore; sisters, Carol Compton, Kathy (Kenneth) Lukowski; seven grandchildren; 11 step-grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and five step-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Thomas Beach; and first husband, William C. Blake. Contributions can be made in memory of Karen Densmore to Perry First Baptist Church, 3918 Main Street, Perry, OH 44081. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

Concert Attire for December 1, 2020

For the ladies:  Blouses should be black, long-sleeved, and any buttons must also be black. No scoop necks, no lace, no cutouts, just plain black with either a stand-up or man collar. Each lady will be provided with a red scarf that will be wrapped loosely around the neck and draped down the front. This will give the entire chorus a finished, uniform look. I was asked about wearing a full-length black dress.  I see no problem with that as long as it is plain black, meets the same sleeve and collar requirements as the blouses and has NO SLITS in the front or sides of the dress. Black slacks may also be worn in lieu of a skirt or dress.  Black shoes are required.
Men will be required to wear a black jacket, black slacks, a white shirt and a red tie, black shoes and socks.
I was also asked where to get black blouses. After some research, I found suitable black blouses at Walmart, Kohl's, and Woman Within (for those of us who might need something roomier)
