Pearl Charlotte (Payne) Zigler

have a memory or condolence to add?


February 9, 2018

I remember my cousin Pearl Charlotte, after visiting her & Ike's wonderful home in Virginia, as a most gracious hostess and delightful friend. She loved pointing out all the local birds but also knew how to handle any poisonous snakes that dared threaten anyone.
Her father, my Uncle Hobart, was quite a good artist and possessed the funniest dry wit I have ever known. After Uncle Hobart died, I offered her one of his paintings that I still have. She told me to keep it as a remembrance, which was was very sweet. Her mother, my stately Aunt Pearl, loved female Cocker Spaniels and alternately named each one Queenie or Princess.
My condolences to friends & family, I will always remember my cousin Pearl Charlotte.
