Marion Shirley Pearl of Scranton, PA and Pompano Beach, FL passed away at 89 years young on Sunday, January 29th surrounded by her daughters, Beverly and Lynn.  Born in Scranton to the late Frieda and Jacob Schoenberg, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband “Pete”, siblings, Leo, Seymour, Esther, and Mickey Schoenberg,her beloved nephew Bruce Schoenberg  and her special brother-in-law, Paul Pearl.  When she was 17 years old, her life forever changed the day she met her future husband, Marvin Pete Pearl at the YMHA.  October 26, 1946, a short courtship turned into 67 years of a honeymoon when she married Pete.  She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.  She cherished her family to whom she was most devoted.  Marion was a member of Temple Israel, Hadassah, Jewish Veteran’s Ladies Auxiliary, Glen Oak Country Club, and the Jewish Community Center as a Member in Perpetuity.

Marion was an undefeated Ladies’ Golf Champion. An accomplished athlete, Marion loved to walk, swim and exercise at the Spa at Palm Aire. She loved to sketch, was a talented painter, bowler, and Brownie leader.  She enjoyed reading, watching biographies, history, and the animal channel.  There was nothing that gave her more joy than calling or hearing from her grandchildren and monitoring their travels around the world. She never relaxed until they called saying they landed and were at home.

Marion lead her life by example, she was a woman of strength and conviction. She made decisions without ever looking back and never doubted her choices.  She lived in the moment.  She said if you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

She is survived by her daughters, Beverly Pearl Meil and Lynn Pearl, grandchildren Jeffrey (wife Leslie) and Jennifer, her dog, Colby TJ, who was a constant source of companionship and strength after Pete’s passing, and by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

The funeral will be Tuesday from the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home, Inc., 318 E. Drinker St., Dunmore with a service at 11:00 am by Rabbi Dovid Saks.
