    We are so sorry to hear of Pearls passing. She was a dear sister-in-law who was the best thing that ever happened to my brother. She was a wonderful person; kind and giving and she will be missed by all who knew and loved her . Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. It is said that when you lose a loved one they become a memory and the memory becomes a treasure. That was Pearl!

    With love and sympathy,

    Larry and Gloria Parrish

    Pearl lived up to her name.. She was a Pearl of a woman… She loved her children and family. She also loved my brother ( her husband ) she lost him in 1995. Pearl’s Family is the most loving family I have ever known. You will be missed.. My prayers are with the family especially her sister Joann.. I love you .

  5. Tori Parrish

    My thoughts & prayers will continue to be with each of you. For 22 yrs Pearl & I shared a birthday together. I will always cherish the memories, especially “those decorative boxes” she always knew made me happiest. Most of all I will never forget that she was the only one that said she was getting a baby boy when Anthony was born. Those two had an unbreakable bond . Pearl will forever be missed. She was a wonderful mom, grandma, & woman that loved her family! Rest In Peace! With Love, Tori, Anthony, & Kendra Parrish
