Pearl was born in Belmont, Manitoba January 22, 1919. In 1944 after graduating from Normal School she came to Miami, Manitoba to teach school at Milton (1944 - 45) and Eldorado (1945-46). It was there that she met the love of her life Leslie Thomson Oakes. They were married July 5th, 1946 in Winnipeg. After they were married, she retired from teaching and devoted her life to being a farmer’s wife and raising a family.

Les and Pearl retired to Morden Oct 1, 1994. Les passed away Aug 22, 1995 and Pearl moved back to Miami. She very much enjoyed visiting with friends, dancing at the Friendship Center, playing cards and going for walks.

While living at the Collingwood she celebrated her 90th birthday.

On September 15, 2009 when she could no longer manage without care, she was admitted to the Foyer at Notre Dame de Lourdes.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Foyer for the excellent care provided to Pearl. On our many visits with Pearl over the years it was truly evident that the Foyer provides quality care and activities for their residents.

A funeral service will be held Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the Miami Community Hall with Rev. Allison Halstead officiating.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 200-310 Broadway, Wpg, MB, R3C 0S6 or a charity of one’s choice.
