Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 5, 1894
Douglas County
Nebraska, USA
Death: Feb. 22, 1974
Long Beach
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Wife of Harvey Ray Corser
Married 24 Dec 1923 at Long Beach, California

Daughter of Edwin Daniel Cox &
Selma Christiana Nelson

Pearls' mother, Selma, a lovely hard-working lady, came to Iowa from Sweden as a very little girl. Pearl's father, Edwin, also hard-working, was born in Ohio. They met and married in Omaha where Pearl, her sister Peg, and three brothers were born. Father worked as a Tinner, a plumber, and a miner. In 1905, Pearl moved with her family to Lead, South Dakota where her father had already been working in the mines for 4 to 5 years to feed the family.

Tragedy struck Pearl's family hard between 1917 & 1919. Her father died in about 1917, brother Vogle in Oct 1918, brother Harley in Feb 1919, and brother William in June 1919. Vogle & Harley died in World War I boot camps of the deadly Spanish Flu pandemic, while William, discharged from the Navy because of illness, died of pneumonia months later at home.

When Pearl went to California and Peg to college in Nebraska, kind-hearted mother Selma took in three young motherless girls, Eva, Ann, and Donna Racich, ages 4 to 7, so their father would not have to put them into an orphanage.

Unfortunate Fact
Pearl nearly died of arsenic poisoning in the 1950s
