November 14, 1917 – April 7, 2014
Pearl died peacefully in her home on Monday, April 7, 2014 at the age of 96. Pearl was healthy and strong until her final day, taking walks in the courtyard and visiting with family and friends who came to visit. Pearl's strength endured through the deaths of her first husband, Frank Walkley, lost to WWII in 1944, her second husband Jack Northam in 1993, and her third son Mike Northam, who succumbed to leukaemia in 2007. Pearl will be remembered with much love by her children, Roberta, Danny (Heather), Colleen (Greg) and Brian (Glenys) and stepdaughters Norma and Janet (Lou) all her grandchildren… they are many! A Service of Remembrance will be held on Friday, April 11 at 1:00 p.m. at the Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel at 11969 – 216th Street. A gathering of family and friends for a Celebration of Life will follow at the home of her grandson, Randy (Dianne) at 20938 Rosewood Place, Maple Ridge. In memory of Pearl, please make any donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
