She was a native of Columbus Co., NC, born to the late John and Mattie Nobles Watkins. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend to all.

Over the years, she and her husband, John, enjoyed their trips to Maggie valley. She was one of 12 children and always put her family first. Everyone loved her cooking. Pearl had a wonderful kindness about her and loved to smile. She was the rock of the family, but nothing made her happier than her grandchildren.
