I was thinking of your mother Pearl when I just saw this obituary. I remember her fondly as someone who generously included us in family gatherings during our short time in Warwick. She was such a good woman and I am better for having known her.

I came to know Pearl through the Ladies Auxiliary Post #1167 when the Chester and Warwick auxiliaries joined together. Pearl was a dedicated member who became President that was well respected. We can thank Pearl and the many other auxiliary members for keeping Post #1167 moving forward. Rest In Peace Pearl
