She earned her Associates Degree and additional credits from the University of Phoenix. A majority of her career was spent in the Semi-Conductor industry. Pearl was a wonderfully modern woman who worked and acquired her education while taking care of her family. Pearl was incredibly proud of her husband and family.

With a kind and generous heart she opened her home to any and all people for food, friendship and hospitability. Many days and evenings of food, laughter, music, dancing, card games and celebrating were done at the “Light house”. Pearl was our lovely Angel on Earth.
