The family moved to Darlington in 1958. She was employed with Pyramid, Nytronics, and later retired from Fiber Industries - Celanese Corporation. She was a breast cancer survivor for 34 years. The most important thing to her was the joy and love of being with her family and the family dog, Minnie. She had the pleasure of having 24 of her family with her almost every Sunday for lunch and they loved their Granny. Even if you weren’t there in person, she always kept you close in her heart. She loved to sing and sang in the choir, singing solos in her early years at Central Baptist Church. She loved her Central Baptist Sunday School Class and the Sunday School Class Supper Club which most members have passed away now. After the passing of her husband 20 years ago, she moved in with Rookie and Sue. She was a guest on Wednesday and Sundays at Trinity United Methodist Church where they accepted her with open arms. Pearl had devoted caregivers, Ruthphene Graham, Terronica Graham and Elizabeth Brown, who sat by her side keeping her company many days, as well as the loving care given to her by the great team of McLeod Hospice. Memorials may be made to McLeod Florence Hospice, Central Baptist Church, or Trinity United Methodist Church.
