'THENA' PERRY, HERALD SOCIETY EDITOR IN '50S
Bethena Townley Perry, who was The Miami Herald's society editor from 1951 to 1954, died Saturday in her daughter's Arizona home. She was 88.
Mrs. Perry -- who used the name Thena -- not only covered society; she was involved in it. When it came time to hire a new society editor, Herald editors decided they wanted someone who was a socialite. They asked Mrs. Perry, who had no newspaper experience.
"Her husband Larry's idea of relaxation was to row out to Biscayne Bay, anchor and fish. But Thena loved society," said friend Marie Anderson.
An outgoing, friendly woman, Mrs. Perry would rush from party to party, phoning articles in to editors.
In 1954, she became a columnist. She worked for The Herald for about another year.
Mrs. Perry and her family were among Miami's pioneers. She was born here in 1900. Her father, pharmacist John Madison Townley, was one of 502 people who voted to make Miami a city on July 28, 1896. He built the first skyscraper, the Townley Building, on Flagler Street. It is still there.
During World War I, Mrs. Perry headed up 15,000 volunteers, most of them women, who worked at the servicemen's pier in Miami Beach, a recreation center for men serving in the war.
"She was a bubbler," said friend Kay Pancoast. "She was bright, warm and friendly."
Mrs. Perry died in Prescott, Ariz., where she had gone 14 years ago to be near her daughter Linda Cheek. In addition to Cheek, she is survived by daughter Amanda Donalds of Massachusetts and sister Rosemarie Smathers of Vero Beach, nine grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Memorial services will be held in Arizona and at 11 a.m. Friday in Woodlawn Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Bascom-Palmer Eye Institute.

She was buried in April 1988 at Woodlawn Park Cemetery, Miami, Dade Co., FL.
