Pearl was a spunky lady who loved life. She enjoyed her family and friends, and she liked being the life of the party. She was blessed with a quick wit and a sharp mind. Her hobby was “kids”, and she immensely enjoyed being a mother and grandmother and spoiling her children. She loved her dogs, Misty and Daisy.

What a wonderful lady! She will be missed by us all. She was our friend and neighbor and we will never forget the memories of swinging on her swing eating pringles and drinking a Dr. Pepper. If I couldn’t find the kids all I would have to do is look across the yards and there they would be swinging with Pearl. Sorry for your loss! Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
