So sorry to hear of Pearle's passing, but she lived a long, full life! I'm sure she was welcomed by her Savior with the words, "Well done my good and faithful servant!" She was a giver and a doer in the community and will be missed. Our condolences to her fmily! Mark & Sarah Higgs

Pearle was my neighbor on 23rd Street in Parkersburg, early 2006. We shared many happy hours together visiting on our front porches there and just be Calhouners! She was also my neighbor for a time on South Side, Grantsville. She will always have a
special place in my heart. Rest in Peace, Dear Friend. My sincere sympathy and blessings to the family. Virginia Buck
