I met Pearl 2 years ago when I moved back to Shawano and moved into her building. Many mornings during the warmer seasons I would be greeted with her "good morning" and beautiful smile while I watered my plants. Pearl made my heart smile. I never felt more welcomed living in an apartment complex as I did with her being there too. I will miss her dearly. She used to bake and then surprise me with the most fabulous tasting strawberry pies in exchange for allowing me to tend to her flower bed. Then I would sit with Pearl on her patio and listen to her talk about her family and friends which was a pure joy. To Pearl's family members: "She was a gift from God to all those who were so lucky to have known and loved her, and I for one will cherish the time and wonderful memories we made together." May God Bless Pearl and her family.
