Pearl Louise Long Obituary
Pearl Louise Long was 63 years young. She was born in San Diego, California on December 7, 1947. She peacefully passed away in Long Beach, California on Saturday, August 27, 2011. Pearl graduated from Narbonne High School and was a proud Gaucho alumnus. She enjoyed family time, going to the movies, swap meets, time in the sun, and bowling. Pearl met the love of her life, Mike Long, at Missle Bowl in Gardena, California. They were married on March 21, 1973. Four years later, their only son, Michael Long, Jr., affectionately known as "Mikie" was born on February 20, 1977. Pearl was proud of Mikie's music career as a very talented bassist player and always knew that he would do well. She was equally proud of all her nieces and nephews and was always supportive. Pearl is survived by her loving husband, Mike Long, Sr.; son, Mikie Long, Jr.; mother, Estefana Slater; and siblings, Rachel Vasquez and Steve Slater. She will be deeply missed, and always remembered for the love, care and generosity that she expressed to all. She fought a courageous battle, and now her loved ones are comforted knowing that she is finally pain free and at peace. Pearl will live on in their hearts forever. All services will be held on Friday, September 2, 2011 at All Souls Cemetery, 4400 Cherry Avenue, Long Beach. Viewing from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Mass at 1:00 p.m. Burial will immediately follow. Family and friends are encouraged to wear something in the shade of purple, as this vibrant color was Pearl's signature and favorite. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
