Her sisters and cousins were her best friends and she enjoyed family gatherings, especially when there was good music, Pearl loved  to dance and would have people laughing for hours. She was also wise beyond her years.

Christmas was her favorite holiday. She loved shopping and buying gifts for everyone, but especially enjoyed decorating her home. She would decorate for every holiday and every season.

In everything that Pearl did, she did it with her true commitment and love for children and grandchildren. There was nothing she would not do for her 4 girls.
