My grandma was the best! I've always been told that nobody is perfect but she certainly was as close as you could get. She was a saint in every definition of the word. Pure love for life, family and others. A smile that could brighten even the darkest of days. I will miss her angelic singing and joyful dancing. I have always and always will look up to her as someone to model my life after. She had a way of making you feel like you were the most special person. Even though it was her that was the special one! This world will be just a shade darker without her here to brighten it up. But hopefully her legacy will do justice to her absence.

I haven’t seen Grandma Pearce in several years, but as a child I saw her often. She and Grandpa Pearce were two of the grooviest “old people” I'd ever met. I remember having such great times at the family get-togethers at their home; the live music, everyone singing along and dancing around the living room... so much fun! Grandma Pearce would always give us kids a little something—a treat or a small gift—on our way out the door. I remember her as a wonderfully thoughtful, kind, generous and motherly woman. I wish I had seen her again as an adult; nevertheless, my childhood memories of her are fond. My sincerest condolences to the entire Pearce family for your loss.

It’s hard to put into words all the things that I admired about this lady and how greatly she will be missed. Thank you for all the laughs, sing-a-longs, quality time, words of wisdom, delicious meals and all of life’s precious gifts you created and shared with everyone you met! Keep singing, smiling and dancing. We love you.
Lisa and Jeff

I can’t be too sad, because I know, at last,
You’re joyfully united with your loved ones passed!
Your sweetheart, your parents, your family so dear,
Those long departed but who are now so near.

I’m sure you’ll miss us, as we will you,
But it's only a matter of time until we too
Join the happy party of family and friends,
In the place where joy and love never ends.

For now the spirit world’s glow is a little bit lighter,
And heaven’s gotten a whole lot brighter;
Certainly more merriment there, and a little less here,
But we’ll carry your memory with laughter and cheer.

'Till we meet again, Mom, Love you! Ricky

Grandma was one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. Funny, charming and glamorous. I always admired her sense of humor and could laugh for hours with her. She never judged me, I always felt I could tell her anything and get solid advice. She was so kind and generous and I always wanted to be just like her. Such a great example to me my whole life. I always felt special when I was with her and I knew everything she said was genuine and from the heart. So many great memories of her and I will always cherish having such a beautiful woman as my grandmother and great grandmother to my children. You will never be forgot Grandma. I love you.
