In Memory – Sue Rose Wright Pellerin


The industry mourns the passing of Sue Rose Wright Pellerin, wife of Pellerin Milnor Corporation co-founder, Norvin Leroy Pellerin. Mrs. Pellerin was the former Pellerin Milnor Corporation First Secretary and Treasurer. She was 84 years old.

Sue was graduate of McMain High School and attended Sophie Newcomb College where she was voted Queen of the Freshman Beauties. She was a member of Saint Charles Presbyterian Church, and taught Sunday school prior to her marriage.

A devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she was known for her wisdom and caring which was an inspiration to all. Her sweet, ever present smile reflected her endearing sense of humor. A gracious hostess, she and her husband enjoyed entertaining. They also enjoyed travelling and visiting interesting global destinations. Their favorite location, however, was their vacation residence in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.

Preceded in death by her loving husband Norvin Leroy Pellerin of 62 years, Sue is survived by her brother James Luther Wright, Jr. and her sister Vera Louise Thibaut. She is also survived by her children: James Willis Pellerin (Stacy), Julie Pellerin Bukrey (Charles), Curtis Allen Pellerin (Maria), Renée Pellerin Gordon (Robert), 13 grandchildren: Anne Bukrey Moyer (Mike), Suzanne Bukrey Kaminski, M.D. (Tom), Brock Elliot Pellerin (Lindsey), Casey Pellerin Westguard (Mark), Lauren Bukrey Laramie (Mike), Corrie Wright Pellerin, Katherin Pellerin Furtado (Stephen), Jean-Marc Pellerin (Melissa), Henri Albert Pellerin, Caroline Blair Pellerin, Jason William Gordon, Jamie Favre Pellerin, Alexandra Rose Gordon and 8 great-grandchildren: Anson, Merrily, and Norvin Moyer, Harry and Oliver Westguard, Jack and Kate Kaminiski, and Maya Laramie.
