DelCorio, Pearl, - 78, of Mays Landing, Our Mom, Pearl, was born in Philadelphia, PA and grew up with her parents Alice and Albert along with her late sister Linda and late brother Bob in Florida. Pearl married Joel in her early 20's, had two children, Kenneth and Ronald Leibow, and then raised her family in New Jersey. Midway through life, she was re-married to Terry DelCorio, a time and a family she cherished dearly, and with whom she fondly helped raise her step-daughter, Linda. Pearl was a very dedicated worker throughout her life holding several positions. She spent most of her working years with the New Jersey American Water Company rising from a secretarial position to eventually Engineering Supervisor until she retired. Mom had an independent spark and a penchant for fun and adventure. She took cruises, para-sailed, attended space camp, and worked diligently to become a black belt in karate. She enjoyed music (singing aloud to the radio in her AMC Gremlin, particularly Pink Floyd), playing scrabble and gin rummy, was partial to a funny joke, and loved pro football especially her beloved Philadelphia Eagles. Mom was very loyal to a close circle of friends and companions, some lifelong, exhibiting a quiet generosity that often went unnoticed. One said, "I never knew I needed a friend until I met your Mom". Her intelligence, listening ear, good humor, tough love, and unwavering loyalty will be dearly missed. Pearl is survived by her two sons, Kenneth Leibow (Deya) and Ronald Leibow (Michelle), and her six grandchildren Kenny, Candice, Grace, Jack, Katie, and Genna. She always had a special place in her heart for her extended family (Grandma Jean, Darren, and the Sittineri's - Cindy, Nick, Little Nick, Julie, and Luke). Due to COVID, arrangements will be private. We will convene family and friends at an appropriate time because she would want everyone to gather safely to celebrate her life. Services will be private.
