Pearl Jackson, 94 years old, passed away in California in January 2020. Pearl was a loving and caring wife, Mother and sister. Her husband, Bill, preceded her in death. Pearl is survived by five children and their spouses, six grandchildren, her nephews and sister.
Pearl was a homemaker, raising five children throughout the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. Pearl was raised in a hard-working family during the depression. While in high school, she volunteered for the school newspaper and wrote a column on fashion. After graduation, she supported herself in NYC as a secretary and bookkeeper. After World War II, Pearl married Bill and bought a house in suburban Pennsylvania. Like many in her generation, Pearl stopped work when the kids came along. Pearl had many fond memories of visiting the Atlantic shore while growing up and then later with family. The tradition of being near an ocean continued with a move to California later in the 1970’s. In California, Pearl earned an associate degree. Pearl struggled with pain in her later years which limited her mobility and travel. Although she was not free to move about, she enjoyed reading, bridge, knitting and visits from her children throughout the years. She will be missed by all.
