Mrs. Bennie Perryman was born November 12, 1931 in Luling to the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry and Francis Hodge. Bennie was the second oldest of five children. She attended public school in Sonora and Big Lake. Bennie was fondly called "Meg-Maw", she touched so many lives with her warm smile and, most of all her love for the Lord. Bennie confessed in Christ at a very early age and, she never wavered. She united with San Angelo Greater I.M.E Church in 1991 under the leadership of the late Rev. Q.H. Blackmon, and then Rev. Joseph Suiters. Bennie loved her church and church family where she proudly served on the Pastor's aide, and kitchen ministry with her warm smile she welcomed you in as head usher. She worked diligently with Missions Society and Stewardess Society. Bennies motto “was to do things decent and in order.” Mama never got tired, and loved what she did. She was a devoted and faithful member until her health failed.
