Aunt Pearl will be greatly missed. She is the last child of Grandpa and Grandma Green to enter Heaven's gate. She brought families together and always had a smile. Memories of the family gatherings will always be cherished. She was gracious and kind, and she was a hard worker. Her coffee would even make a cowboy stiffen up a leg. Ha!
Cindy & Kate,
I have so many good memories of Pearl – she was a hardworking, God-loving woman and such an inspiration! I am out of town so unfortunately cannot make it to her wake. You are both in my prayers!
Dear Cindy and Family- Growing up in Libertyville and attending the Libertyville Methodist Church means that I knew Pearl and Chester Bohs for all of my early years. They were the leaders of the MYF group when I was a teenager and provided lots of guidance and caring. I so enjoyed seeing Pearl and Chester over the years when I visited Libertyville and the church. I know you all have wonderful memories of Pearl to hold dear during this time of loss. May God bless all of you.
Dear Cindy, Kate, and family. Sending sympathy from the Dugals. Love and prayers, Bev
Pearl such a sweet caring lady. Pleasure of knowing her at St Louis Hills. She'll be missed by her friends.
Your mom was a very special lady; a wonderful role model and confidant. She, and your dad, cared about The Libertyville Methodist Church and always lived their lives with it in mind.
We were blessed to have a wonderful church family growing up, including the Sunday afternoons with you and Jane and Sheila.
As we get older, life becomes more precious, especially when we become the oldest generation. May you and yours be blessed!
