** In Loving Memory of Pearl **
Pearl is loved, missed and will be remembered in our hearts forever. Pearl was a beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Cousin, God Mother, Best Friend and so much more. Pearl passed away peacefully in her sleep at her apt in Osceola WI. It was unexpected as she had overcome many medical issues previously and appeared healthy. Pearl talked much about feeling blessed that she had a long
life. Just months before she passed away
this writer had the honor to spend time with
Pearl talking about her life and family history.
She always shared Family history with Family
and was an excellent Family historian.
She was working toward planning her
next bus trip to her favorite vacation
place Branson Missouri and attend the
many Country Music events there.
Pearl was active in her new Senior
apartments and had many friends. She spent
time with her friends at her building.
She looked out for her "elderly" friends
making sure they got their groceries, etc.
Pearl was a strong woman of Faith.
Pearl talked about Thanking God for
her life and many blessings.
Knowing Pearl was a blessing in the
lives of all who loved her or knew
her. Pearl graciously overcame some
hard times during her life.
Pearl had overcome some major medical
issues including cancer that was life
threatening. Pearl was being treated for
some new skin cancer spots on her face
when she passed away that were early
stage and her doctor had treated her.
She had previously undergone chemotherapy.
She lost her hair during her chemo, thus
the pictures of her with hats. Her hair
grew back. She was planning for more trips.
Pearl was proud of her children and grandchildren. She loved her Family and Friends. She had a big heart, was great listener and always there to help anyone who needed her. Pearl was that favorite aunt, sister that everyone desires, best mom, grandmother, godmother, best friend and so much more. Pearl was a pleasure to spend time with. She loved her country western music, travel - especially tour bus trips to Branson, reading & romance novels, sewing, crafts, but most of all Pearl loved of all her family and friends.
