Luvenia was born July 27, 1932 in Oglethorpe, Macon County, Georgia to the late Mr. Roosevelt Schofield and the late Mrs. Jannie B. Williamson Schofield. She acquired her education in the public school system of Macon County whereas she attended the Oglethorpe Grammar School of Oglethorpe, Georgia and later the Macon County High Training School of Montezuma, Georgia. She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and joined the Davis Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
She was united in holy matrimony to the late Minor Lewis Perkins and to this union they were blessed with nine children. Luvenia was a loving and dedicated mother and friend. She enjoyed helping other and lending a helping hand to those who needed one. We thank God for the service she rendered to the community.
