Pearl worked and managed Paint and Pattern Wallpaper Store for 23 years. After retiring, she continued to work part time in a beauty salon and at Cracker Barrel Restaurant where she enjoyed being around people. She loved baking her famous biscotti cookies and passing down her favorite traditional recipes to her children and grandchildren. She was most passionate about the Love for her Family.
Pearl will be remembered as the kindest, loving, and most generous woman who was friends with everyone. When Pearl wasn’t baking for her family she enjoyed sewing, macrameing, playing cards, bowling and golfing. Pearl will be remembered most fondly for “not being able to hear you unless she had her glasses on”.
