PEARL ETTA PRIDDLE

September 23, 1920 – May 28, 2012

In loving memory of Pearl Priddle, a resident of Gore Bay, who died peacefully at the Manitoulin Lodge on Monday, May 28, 2012 at the age of 91 years, with her family at her side. Pearl was born in Gordon Township, daughter of the late Angus and Nettie (Thompkins) McDougall. Pearl’s first priority was always her family. She doted on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She had a big heart for everyone and this was reflected in her hours of volunteering for different functions, and always helping others. She loved to spend time with her friends, especially curling bonspiels (until she was 87 years of age) and continued to be an armchair curler for the past few years. Pearl also was a member of the Eastern Star, was a member of the Red Hats and golfed. Pearl was predeceased by her beloved husband Grant in 2007. Loving and loved mother of Frank and Julia of Naughton, Rick and Margie of Gore Bay and Nancy and Dave Patreau of Little Current. Cherished grandmother of Loretta Pearl, Edwin, Justin, Aaron, Alyssa, Ryan (Lori) and Danielle (Sean). Beloved “Great Mama” of Ryland, Xavier and Keira Pearl. Pearl is also survived by sisters-in-law Sheila McDougall of Prince George, BC, Mollyanne (Hugh) McLaughlin and brother-in-law Cam Clark of Gore Bay. Remembered by many nieces and nephews. Pearl was predeceased by her parents, brothers Angus, Clarence (Echo), Neil (Stella), Lauchie (Alma) and Mac, and sisters Mamie (Stan) Gordon, Lizzie (Ronnie) Gordon, Margie (Al), Ferris, Renie (Harold) Noble, brother-in-law Bud (Dot) Priddle and sister in law Audrey Clark. Friends called at the Culgin Funeral Home on Thursday, May 31, 2012 from 10 am – 11 am. The funeral service to celebrate Pearl’s life was conducted at 11 am with Rev. Paul Walmsley officiating.
