Mrs. Teresa L. Pervine, 71, of Murray, passed away on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at her home.

Teresa was born and raised in Salem, IN. She attended West Washington High School where she loved playing in the band. After graduation she went on to pursue a college education at Purdue University where she met the love of her life, Bob Pervine. After marriage, they moved to Lexington, KY where she graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelors degree in General Studies, with an emphasis in Psychology. 

Life took her family to Murray, KY in 1985 where she devoted her time to raising her two children. After her kids grew older she wanted to return to school where she obtained another bachelors degree in biology from Murray State University. Teresa started her career at the Murray Calloway County Hospital working in the lab as a Medical Technologist. While working at the hospital she changed positions and transferred to IT before she finally retired after 26 years.

Teresa was a devoted member of West Murray church of Christ. She had a giving heart and donated regularly to charities. These included Sacred Selections, which funds adoptions, and Project Heart - which was a special charity that was dear to her heart, hoping one day there is a cure for kids diagnosed with CHD. She loved her family fiercely and was happiest when “all her ducks were in a row”.  Her greatest joy was being a grandmother and never was shy to ask if she was getting anymore.

Mrs. Pervine was preceded in death by her parents, Roger and Mary Lou Routh.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Bob Pervine, of Murray; her son, Trevor Pervine and wife, Amy of Murray;  her daughter, Tracy Shumake and husband Phillip of Peachtree Corners, GA.; a brother, Dave Routh of Salem IN; grandchildren, Addi and Ethan Pervine and Andrew and Abby Shumake.
