Keri Lyn Perotti, 21, of North Canaan, died unexpectedly on Oct. 13.
Miss Perotti was born March 5, 1991, in Great Barrington, Mass., the daughter of Charles and Bonnie Perotti, of North Canaan.
A lifelong Canaan resident, she worked as parts manager at her family-owned business, William Perotti & Sons Plumbing and Heating.
She was a 2009 graduate of Housatonic Valley Regional High School in Falls Village, where she was a three-sport varsity athlete playing soccer, basketball and softball.
She was attending Northwestern Community College.
Nothing was more important to Miss Petotti than the time she spent with family and friends. She was extremely close to her sisters and enjoyed helping to plan and organize their recent weddings.
She was an avid Boston Bruins and New York Yankees fan. She took joy in watching and attending their games. The final Yankees game she attended was last week, when she witnessed game three of the division series, where the Yankees won in 12 innings against the Baltimore Orioles.
She loved attending concerts and telling the story about how she met the Jonas Brothers and One Direction backstage.
Miss Perotti took great pride in her community and was a constant presence at fire company functions, including parades, the carnival and railroad days. The time she spent with her fire company family also included volleyball picnics, yearly vacations and holiday parties.
She loved playing second base for the Captain Crew softball team and cherished the time she spent with her friends.
In addition to her parents, Miss Perotti is survived by two sisters and their spouses, Shannon and David Mlodzinski, of Wethersfield, and Marci and Derek Saunders, of Warren; a great-aunt, Shirley, of Sheffield; an aunt, Anna Fallon, and her husband, Jerry, of Canaan; an uncle, Frank Perotti, and his wife, Jean, of Canaan; an aunt, Ida Leonard, and her husband, Ronald, of Hartsville, Mass.; an aunt, Judith Corbett, of Great Barrington, Mass.; and several cousins and many close friends and teammates.
