Chris was born July 6, 1955, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Earl and Betty (Moulds) Brauckman. She married her high school sweetheart, Randy Lee Perkins, on April 20, 1974 at Assumption Church in Granger.

Chris started her career at Banker’s Life/Principal Financial Group, but her true passion was family. Her proudest accomplishments by far are her four boys. Chris was able to be at home to raise her family and had various part time jobs through the years as the boys grew. She was a busy mom and enjoyed attending all of their various sporting events, boating, and competitive go-kart racing. In her free time, she was a Sunday School teacher at Granger Assumption Church and helped Randy pursue his dream as a track promoter in 1993 at Riverside Speedway and together they built the Jamaica Raceway in 1998.

Chris spent the last 17 years of her career as the City Clerk/Finance Officer for the city of Woodward and also Bouton for the last couple of those years. Chris retired in June of 2020 and spent most of her free time attending her grandchildren’s games, family get togethers and camping.
