Philanthropist, socialite, volunteer, fundraiser and second wife to George Ehret Ruppert, President of the Jacob Ruppert Brewing Co. and VP of the New York Yankees until his death nine years earlier. She was the daughter of Frederick Jackson of London and was sister to Ethel Jackson Klein (Mrs. Warren C.) and John E. Jackson, both of New York. Her mother remarried and became Mrs. Thomas Elam of NYC. She served as President of the Outdoor Cleanliness Assn. for many years and was Chair of its very popular annual Flower Mart on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral. She also served in volunteer executive positions with the Hospitalized Veterans Music Service, the Citizens Committee for the Army and Navy and the New York Heart Assn. and was a trustee of the Federation of Woman Shareholders in American Business. Two of her most popular charitable fundraising events were the NYC premieres of the films "Giant" and "Of Men and Music", the former she organized with Mrs. Lou Gehrig (Eleanor Grace Twitchell-Gehrig) and Mrs. J. C. Penney and the latter with Mrs. John Jacob Astor and Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor. Pearl died at the age of 65 while visiting a niece in Denver. She left behind her step-daughter Cornelia Althea Ruppert-Vernon (Mrs. Murray) and her step-grandchildren, Murray Jr. and George Ruppert Vernon, a step-great-grandaughter Anne Buck Vernon and many nieces and nephews. Pearl was entombed in the Ruppert Family Mausoleum next to her husband.
