June 01, 1967 - August 09, 2020
It is with our deepest sorrows that we say goodbye to a cherished mother and wife Peri Karl, she left us too soon. Never-to-be-forgotten. Peri passed away peacefully in Everett Washington on August 9th, 2020 due to renal failure. It was a long hard road and she fought until god took her home.
Peri was born in Los Angeles California and raised in Simi Valley California she was one of five children to Sunny and Izzy Dorfman. She was known for her empathetic ways and was always full of love. As a child Peri loved to play with friends and animals especially her dogs. She was especially close to her sister Jan who she shared a room with until they were teens. They enjoyed playing their favorite music dressing up for photo shoots together and talking about boys.
When Peri was young she enjoyed going out to parties concerts and the drive-in with Friends. Having fun was always the plan and she always made it happen. She did everything her way.
Peri had her first child on January 21st, 1987 born Tiffany Anne Witham and her second child November 4th, 1988 born Eric Ryan Johnson. Being a young mother is never easy and presented some struggles but we know she did the best she could. She was assisted by her parents who had a big role in raising both children.
In her late twenties she met the love of her life, Thomas Karl who was the biggest blessing. They shared a love and bond like no other. They moved to Washington in the mid-90s and came together to help each other in every way possible. They made a life together and by the grace of God they were married on March 2nd, 1997.
They loved each other through thick and thin, just the way it should be, for over 30 years.
Peri and Tom had two children together Tommy Karl born March 12th, 1997 and Maggie Karl born June 22nd, 2000.
Peri was a stay-at-home mother and wife. Her children and husband were her pride and joy.
Peri had her struggles in life as we all do and we have complete faith that she gave it her all with the understanding and pools that she was given. We know she now has ultimate understanding for her life on Earth as it was. Peri was a devout Christian and loved the lord. She spent day and night watching the TBN channel and praying. Peri found strength and comfort in Jesus as her savior. She was baptized on June 9th, 2019. It is bittersweet knowing that we can no longer see her or hear her voice, she is now absent from the body but present with the Lord.
Perfect and whole once again. Our angel.
Never forgotten, until we meet again, loved always and forever. Fly high.
We will forever love you and never forget you and your beautiful soul.
A date for a celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
If you cannot attend her celebration of life for those who are able you may send red or white roses with baby's breath.
They were her favorite.
