as told by her friend, Serena
Pearl, passed away
on August 19, 2012. Our sympathies to her family.
Pearl is the mother of my best friend
Linda. She was born to Alfred and Elsie, who were farmers in
PA. Pearl married Francis and raising 7 children while they
worked their farm (6 boys, 1 daughter). Francis passed 42
years ago. After he passed, she raised the children by
herself for quite some time, working 2 and 3 jobs, maintaining
farm with the children and then later remarried a gentleman
Together they had 13 kids (Pearl had 7, Dick had 6).
Dick passed a few years ago.
Pearl has BEATEN cancer twice in her
lifetime. Once about 25 years ago, (breast cancer), and then
four years ago, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, had a
complete hysterectomy and is here today to talk about it!
Always kind, positive and very warm and
loving. I can’t say enough good things about Pearl… just a
very sweet, wonderful woman!
Loves flowers, pastel colors (pink/blue – Easter colors),
going to dinner with her children (7of them!), Vanilla
Fields (favorite perfume)
