Maria Perri was born on the 18th October 1916 in Casenove ,Decollatura Italy.
Her parents were Giuseppe Perri and Concetta Cerra ,They had four children,
three girls and one boy.

The earliest photograph I have of my mother aged approximately thirty five. It is from her passport. My maternal grandmother Concetta Cerra. She had five children, whom she had to bring up on her own as her husband died very young. She had a hard life but never complained. I adored her. Angelina, Rosina.a friend and Giusepina Perri.
