Pearl Eleanor Forwood passed away peacefully on May 5, 2020 at the Ross Payant Centennial Nursing Home, at the age of 97 years. Pearl was born February 27, 1923 at Canopus, Saskatchewan to Albert and Thea Edwards. Pearl was the youngest of six children. She married the love of her life, Peploe Forwood, on January 15, 1944. Pearl and Pep lived the farming life in the Wood Mountain hills for thirty-four years, working side by side, before retiring to Assiniboia in 1978. One of Pearl’s greatest pleasures in life was spending time with her three grandchildren. Many games of “Old Maid” were played, which Grandma never won.

I'm thinking of you all today as you mourn the loss of your mom and grandma. Pearl was a sharp lady with a sense of humor . Betty Roy and I ended up in a cabin next to Pep and Pearl at Cypress Hills ( had to be in the 70's). We played whist one night and had a great time. Neither of us ever forgot that. She lived a good life and I'm sure was ready to meet Pep on the other side.
