Jamie K. Perlich | Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

July 23, 1959 - June 20, 2020

Jamie Katherine Perlich

Age 60, of Richfield, passed away on June 20th. Preceded in death by her parents John Clifford and Dorothy Andrus as well as brother John Christopher Andrus and sister Carolyn Hanson. Survived by her loving husband of 39 years Matthew, three sons Jason, Bradley and Andrew and three sisters Maribeth Vos, Paula Bollman and Lisa Friden. She will also be remembered by many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Jamie was always the life of a party. No matter the occasion, she was excited to celebrate and be around people she loved. She brought that same enthusiasm to everything she did in life. She loved to cook for her family and friends and never passed up the opportunity to make another one of her delicious dishes for everyone to enjoy. Cooking was her special way of expressing love. She also was one of the biggest Minnesota Vikings fans around and would proudly display her purple and gold colors anytime she went out. It did not matter what long odds her team faced, she would never give up on them.

More than anything, Jamie loved all of her family and would do anything to make sure that they were happy, well fed and together at all the most important times. The fierce love and loyalty that she displayed in life will live on forever as her legacy.
