Maria Periard Obituary, Death – Maria “Mary” Antonietta Periard, who was 61 years old at the time of her death on December 5th, 2022, has passed away. Mary was larger than the average person. Her laugh could be heard from across the room, her facial expressions revealed exactly what she was thinking, and she cussed like a sea captain. If she gave you a nickname or teased you about one of your peculiarities, you had a good idea that she liked you.
Mary enjoyed listening to John Mellencamp, going out to eat, dancing (mostly with her hands) at weddings and in the car, and watching reality television. She also loved to dance. She worked as a hair stylist, and her greatest satisfaction came from making her clients feel beautiful both on the inside and the outside. She told her mother that she had finally met the man she was going to marry after she had her first encounter with her husband, and her mother was absolutely correct. Mary was aware of the fact that she was typically correct about things. Mary was a beacon of light wherever she went, despite the fact that she wore black clothing virtually all of the time.
Her brother Michael Isopi, mother Liliana Isopi, father Carlo Isopi, aunt Roselyn and uncle Frank Volante, and in-laws Gladys and Billy Periard all passed away before Mary. Mary was also predeceased by her husband Carlo Isopi. She is survived by her husband Mark Periard, daughter Liana (William) Vultaggio, sister Michelle (Shawn Hughes) Isopi, aunt Clara Isopi, and a large number of friends and family members who were very important to her.
On Tuesday, December 13th, from 4pm to 8pm, a gathering to celebrate the life of the deceased will take place at the Fountains Golf & Banquet in Clarkston. As we get together to talk about Mary’s life and times, we will have some light snacks and beverages for you to enjoy. In lieu of flowers, Mary’s family asks that you be generous with your tipping during the upcoming holiday season, plant flowers in your garden this spring, or share a juicy steak with the people you care about in memory of Mary.
