She valued her faith and family above all else, and always had a pot of coffee and a sympathetic ear for anyone who needed it.

Relatives and freinds are invited to attend visitation at Harry McKneely & Son Funeral Home, 100 W. Magnolia St., Ponchatoula, LA on Saturday July 1, 2017 from 9:00 am until the Funeral Service at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at Parklawn Cemetery.

Pearly loved flowers but she wouldn't want anyone to spend money on funeral sprays. In lieu of flowers, plant something in your own garden, enjoy a meal with your loved ones, or take your mama to the casino.
