Date of birth: June 17, 1947

Date of death: July 16, 2010

No need to tell that Seth’s mother was absolutely wonderful, because just a great personality could bring up the Family Guy creator. Unfortunately, Perry (as she was called in a family circle) died quite early – at the age of 63. The reason of her death was cancer.

She is the third kid of Arthur and Berta Sager. Perry was born in Newburyport, Massachusetts and grew up in Byfield, MA, where both her parents worked as teachers at Governor Dummer Academy. She was a brilliant pupil at Masconomet High School and then continued her education at Lasell College, where she specialized in early childhood education.

Perry lost her mother, when she was just 17 years old. After that she was so eager to create the family by her own. In 1970 her dream fulfilled – she tied a knot with Ronald M. MacFarlane. They gave a birth to a son (our today hero) and a daughter, Seth’s only sister.

Mrs. MacFarlane worked as a teacher during her whole life and died from cancer at a comparatively young age. As her friends tell, she liked her life and was a bug fan of high-quality shoes and bags. She is survived by her husband, kids, two grandchildren and an older sister.
