Pearl Cantrell, 105, of Richland Springs, Texas, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, in Brownwood, Texas. She was born on March 15, 1908, to her father, Jess Hudson and mother Abigail Knutson in San Saba County. Pearl had a very active life in which she lived everyday like it was her last. She lived to see a couple of World Wars, a Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, devastating 1938 flood, severe droughts and 19 presidents. During her time here she had eight children in which she loved dearly. Being a lifelong resident to San Saba County people in the community took time to get to know her pretty well. She enjoyed listening to music and dancing with her beloved friends and family members. When she had some down time she loved working with her hands either working in the yard to maintain her flowers or quilting and sewing together new pieces of art. Pearl spent most of her time in Lakeview where she celebrated her 105th birthday where it was held at the Lake view School House each year. Her claim to fame came last year when Oscar Meyer filmed their interview with her because she claimed the reason why she has lived so long was because "she ate bacon every day." Pearl is survived by two sons, Billy Howard Allen and Emmett Marion Allen and wife Patty; three daughters, Aba Ruth Kruger, Faye-Eden Curry and Anno Richards and husband James; 23 grandchildren; and 53 great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren and great-great-great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Jess Hudson and Abigail Hudson; two husbands, Clarence Patrick Allen and Henry Hilton Cantrell; and three children, Margie Nell Allen, Robert Wayne Allen and Lula Pearl Larsen. Memorials can be made to Varga Chapel Cemetery or any charity of choice . Arrangements are under the direction of Blaylock Funeral Home in San Saba, Texas.
