Clara Ray Dery
Clara Ray Dery, age 79 of Summertown, TN, passed away on Friday, August 21, 2020 in Hermitage, TN. She loved growing roses and feeding hummingbirds.
Our precious Mama took her last breath today. She had strong faith in our God Jehova and always said: “No matter what happens in life, everything’s gonna be alright.” She was a loving and devoted wife, mother and friend. Her faith in the wonderful hope of the resurrection also helped her to appreciate the Bible’s hope and the Paradise Earth for the future where it says in Revelation 21:1-4, “There will be no more tears, no more death, neither mourning, or outcry or pain. The former things have passed away.” She will be deeply missed until that glorious day comes.
She was preceded in death by her husband: Dezso Dery; parents: James and Ivy Hardin; sons: Ervin Dery, Dezso Dery; daughter: Telina Paz; four brothers; and two sisters.
She is survived by her son: George Dery (Tracie) of Troy, MO; daughters: Sue Lieberman (Jeff) of Columbia, MD, Karen Rechau (Ulrich) of Summertown, TN, Zandra Benefield (Trent) of Hermitage, TN; four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren.
