She and Vere then ran a Quaker State station and grocery for 21 years.

In later years, Pearl was an avid reader and enjoyed going to the Gilmer Public Library. She was famous with her family and friends for her cooking, especially her delicious meatloaf and macaroni salad. With the exception of the final weeks of her life, she spent the last three years with her beloved daughter and son-in-law, Dianne and Bob Smith.

Due to COVID restrictions, the funeral service will be private, immediate family only. Interment will take place at Betts Cemetery under the direction of Stump Funeral Home & Cremation, Inc., Grantsville, WV, with Rev. Ken Heiney officiating. A celebration of life will be held in the spring 2021.

I knew Pearl and her husband . When I was going to college in Glenville I would always stop at the store and buy gas and a candy bar and also just to say hi. She was a lovely lady and I know she will be greatly missed by her family. By the way my Dad and Lever's were first cousins. Lever 's Mother Ret was my Dad's aunt . My grandmother was a Hosey.
