She was loved dearly by her great-grandchildren Shaelin, Shelby and Spencer Green; Hannah and Jackson Hodgins, and Alana Woods, Simon and Landry Read; Eliotte Brouillard; Lola and Bowie Abbott; and Payton Storey. Pearl was the cherished sister of Wilma and Cecil Sutton of Ripley, and loved “Auntie” of many nieces and nephews.
Pearl was predeceased by her parents George and Eva King, and siblings Willex and Maxine King, Mae and Ray Myatt, Mildred and Stewart Couch (and Art Ward); and her parents-in-law Fredrick and Florence Hodgins, and sister-in-law Eunice Fair.
