Pearl was a member of St. Anne Catholic Church in Crest Hill and the Altar and Rosary Society. She was a homemaker who enjoyed crocheting and baking, but nothing brought her more joy than spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Pearl's family will always remember the friendly staff and residents of Our Lady of Angels who made Pearl feel "at home" the past nine years. She could not have been more comfortable and content.
