Faye Pearman passed away peacefully on September 7, 2019 surrounded by family. Faye was born in 1933 in Winston-Salem, NC yet resided in Norfolk the majority of her days.

Faye loved to travel and was an avid reader. She was a member and multi-term president of the Ghent Garden Club. She was also a member of the Ghent Civic League and the Ghent Business Association.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Herbert Pearman, Sr.; mother, Lois Stainback; father, Hal Holden; and many close friends including her best friends, Tina Pearman (sister-in-law) and Frances Pucher. Left to cherish her memory are her sister, Carolyn Stainback; and her three sons, Herbert Pearman, Jr. (Joni), Michael Pearman (Connie), and David Pearman(Cathy); and her beloved grandchildren, Dean, Allison, Taylor, Sydney, and Alise; along with many extended family and friends.

The family wishes to express their heartfelt appreciation to the staff of the Berger Goldrich Home of Beth Sholom Village for their loving and amazing care. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of contributions to Beth Sholom Village or a charity of choice.

Faye was one of the nicest people I knew. I have fond memories of her from the Fairfax Ave. days, as well as in more recent times. She was a very good friend to my mother and to all of us Puchers. My thoughts and prayers are for the entire Pearman family(s).
