Pearl was a lifelong learner who shared the knowledge she gained with others, always with the hope it would help them. She loved the water and her beloved farm on Wolfe Island. Pearl was a devoted mother who always put the needs of her children before her own no matter how challenging that may have been at times. She loved her brothers and sisters and all their children and often spoke of them. She had a successful career at the Royal Military College and working with a prominent Kingston architect. Her mind remained sharp until the end. She had a strong belief in God and was in no doubt that her final resting place was in heaven. She will be deeply missed by all those whose lives and hearts she touched so profoundly.

A Celebration of Pearl’s Life will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday May 26th at the Wolfe Island United Church Hall 32 Victoria Street.
