Pearline was one of my mentors as a young student and tech… I worked with her a number of years and she was always patient and kind. I feel very blessed to have reconnected with her at a dear friends’ memorial and my prayers for her family.

Pearline has been a part of my life for many years and I feel so blessed. She has been a huge joy of my life and was there for me in some of my darkest times. I will miss her wholeheartedly but she will always be in my heart and memories daily. Pearline was cherished by all that knew her and she loved her family beyond measure. Thank you Pearline for sharing so many beautiful and fun memories all the years we worked together that I can hold close to my heart until we meet again. Will look forward to being together again one day to laugh and make mischief. Prayers and love for your family to have comfort and strength during this time.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Pearline for twenty-five years in the Radiology Department of Erlanger Medical Center. I considered her a friend and she was the most charming woman, kind, caring and competent with a wonderful smile. I am sure she will be fondly missed by all who knew her. My condolences to her family and loved ones.
