Pearl Marie Jackson, a friend to all who knew her, peacefully passed away in her sleep on March 12, 2022. She was born to Vera and Norman Jackson in San Gabriel, California September 22, 1948. She grew up on the sunny beaches of California, being a "California Girl" through and through. She moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1979, where she lived for the majority of the remainder of her life. She had three kids who she loved dearly.
Pearl held many jobs over the years and retired from Auto Owner's Insurance about 10 years ago. She was able to make friends everywhere she went. She had a wonderful smile and sparkling eyes that made people gravitate towards her. She would especially love sitting around a table and playing Skip-bo, Rack-O, or any other card game all night long. You would find Pearl always singing or humming, having music always playing in her soul. She loved 60's memorabilia and dreamed of the day when she would own a '57 Chevy. She also would spend hours making jewelry to give to friends.
The place Pearl loved more than anywhere else was being at a beach. Having her feet in the sand, feeling the warm, humid air, and having her camera ready to take photographs of anything that inspired her at the moment. There are stacks of photos of all of her friends over the years because she loved capturing moments with the people she loved.
Pearl was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served a mission for the Church in Santiago, Chile. She frequently talked about her belief in the Church, always looking to serve where she was able to.
Pearl was preceded in death by her parents, Norman and Vera Jackson, her sister Norma, and her brother Paul. She has many friends and family that will be there with open arms and smiles waiting to hug her as she passes into heaven. She had missed them all so incredibly much over the years. She leaves behind her children Liz (Warren) Earle, Patrick McPartland, Marie (Kevin) Hauschildt, and lots of grand puppies. As a family, we would like to thank all those who have been there for our Mom. Many of you were there for the good times while also helping her through the hard times. We would especially like to send sincere gratitude to her longtime friend Marilyn (Andrew) Smith, who has always been an incredible support not only to our Mom but to our whole family.
Pearl chose to be cremated, with funeral services held on Saturday, March 26, 2022, starting at 12:00 P.M. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 6890 Whitmore Way, Cottonwood Heights, 84121. If you are potentially ill, we ask that you stay home and watch the broadcast that will be done of her funeral; otherwise, all are welcome.
