BEAULIEU, Pearl Marjorie Amanda
After a protracted battle with cancer, December 2, 2015 Pearl at the age of 60, has gone home to spend eternal life with our Lord Jesus. Pearl is greatly missed by her family and many close friends. Pearl’s sponsored daughter, Janet Ashong in Ghana, Pearl’s sisters Linda Newman, (nephews: David and James.), Dori Poulin, (nieces and nephew: Charity, Hope, Alishia, Lisa, and Lucas). Dori’s grandchildren, many nieces and nephews from Pearl’s sisters Yullen and Carol, Pearl’s former roommate Karen Bardwell, also known as Pearl’s sister. Thank you for inviting Pearl into your family Karen. Thank you to Sheila on behalf of Pearl and Dori for faithfully visiting Pearl, in our home every Sunday to pray and uplift her spirits. Pearl was born on October 27, 1955 in Prince Rupert, B.C. to her Father Arthur Beaulieu from Quebec, and Mother Dorcus Harris from Hazelton, B.C. (Parents have predeceased her.) Pearl grew up in many alternative homes and institutions, from the age of 13 onward, her journey through life brought her to the Okanagan, in the early 70’s. There she adopted a larger loving family, in the family of God. Pearl loved her pastor “Ed” (as she referred to him) from the Kelowna Christian Center, where she was a faithful member for 27 years. Pearl adopted and prayed for her family at Fabricland, where she was employed since 1988 and proudly received a SERVICE – DEDICATION – COMMITMENT – LOYALTY AWARD. Thank you to Marg for being a great support beam in Pearl’s life, she loved your hugs and all her sisters in the Fabricland family. Stray cats, birds, and animals were loved and Adopted by her. Pearl’s latest companions were: “Fairyland” also known as “Harold”, our ferret,” Benjamin,” Lucas’s pup and “Soup,” Alishia’s pup. I believed she enjoyed their company at times more than people company. In attending many workshops for independent living, Pearl purchased her own home. Through praying to the Lord for guidance, and the faithful help from her closest friends Nelly and Henry Vantol, she found stability. Pearl would go to church, women’s aglow, and the foodbank, faithfully to volunteer her time packing, and praying with the less unfortunate weekly. A huge thank you from me Dori, for being there for her, she loved and respected you both. As time moved forward, Pearl needed a companion and in answer to her prayers, Karen moved into Pearl’s home as a room-mate. They both loved and respected each other throughout Pearl’s life. Karen, you’re loved by our family, thank-you for being you. Other interests in Pearl’s life was: bowling, in which she received awards and plaques, what a great team player! Starbucks was a ritual, she developed a place for her friends and her sister Linda to meet together weekly, you know if you could not find Pearl, she would probably be found in the shopping mall, or looking for a quality item at the second hand stores. Family celebrations were mostly held at her sister Dori’s , Pearl loved to gather for all events such as Christmas, Easter, including birthdays, Pearl would find any place to being with people. After diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago, she remained dedicated in her work and volunteering, not to forget to mention her will to fight her illness. She remained positive, her encouragement was heightened by reading her bible, and listening to her Joyce Meyer book, ”Never Give Up.” Pearl’s strong faith in our Lord, kept us all in comfort, as she was patiently waiting for God’s will to be fulfilled in her life. Pearl was predeceased by her parents, her sisters Carol Machura, and Yullen Dorcus Brand and her brother Arthur Romeo Beaulieu. Celebration of life memorial will be held on January 23, 11:00 am at the Kelowna Christian Center, following are refreshments, sandwiches and desserts from 12:00 – 1:00 in church meeting room. All are welcome. Pearl requested to be cremated. Her ashes will be interred at Gyro Beach, Kelowna, B.C. In the springtime all are welcome. Our family would like to especially thank, all the support staff, from Interior Health that graciously came to Dori’s home in the last 5 months to assist Dori with quality care for Pearl. You are so appreciated for your all your help, Pearl adopted each and every one of you into her heart, so did Dori.
