Not sure what to say?

To the Davis family..so very sorry for the loss of Pearl. I worked as a 911 dispatcher in Peoria. Came on in "79...Pearl was the glue that held that jail together. Such a great lady..knew her job, was nice to everyone, and was a total help to me when I needed it. She was respected by the county deputies, city police officers, as well as other area agencies..Everybody knew Pearl!! One fine lady. She will be greatly missed by all. May God give you all comfort in this difficult time.

Sorry to hear of Pearl’s passing. She was a valued team member serving the community during her many productive years at the jail. She was a pleasure to work with and a leader for so many others. I hope she is always fondly remembered and appreciated by those she has left behind. Peace to her family and friends.

Pearl and I were Sergeants together for many years on 1st shift at Peoria Country Sheriff’s Department. She was in a very tough, violent atmosphere, but always handled anything that came her way.

Mixed in with the hard times, were more fun and cherished memories! My thoughts and prayers go out all family and friends. She was a good,...
