September 23, 1919 – Ninette, MB
March 1, 2014 – Calgary, AB
It is with sadness, but peace, that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother Pearl Waylett (nee Cairns), knowing that she is with her Lord and Savior. She was born in Ninette Manitoba on September 23, 1919. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at Foothills hospital in Calgary on March 1st, 2014 following a stroke. Pearl was predeceased by her loving husband Pat in 2009, after 67 years of marriage.
Pearl was a loving, devoted mother to her 4 children, Garry (Gayle), Bill (Gail), Randy (Denise) and Mary-Jane (Mark Glaser deceased 2011). She was adored by her 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Her number one priority in life was her family.
Pearl always had a positive attitude about life and shared her beautiful smile with everyone. Growing up in Winnipeg she attended Kelvin High School, was an avid speed skater and loved playing her violin in an orchestra. She also loved music, dancing and playing cards.
Pearl had several career jobs (Burns, Eaton’s, Ross Reality) and loved her position at St. John’s Ravenscourt School, where she was a special friend to all the resident students.
Pearl lived her life as a devoted Christian, always caring for others and sharing her faith. Two of her favorite ways of serving God were working with children (Mission Band) and blessing many with a large mailing of the Upper Room monthly for more than 25 years. In Winnipeg, Pat and Pearl were active members of St. Vital Baptist Church, then in BC at Summerland Baptist Church.
Pat and Pearl raised their family in Winnipeg, and after retirement enjoyed years as snowbirds wintering in Desert Hot Springs, California. They moved to Summerland BC in 1988. They enjoyed a wide circle of friends wherever they lived. In 2013 Pearl moved to Calgary where she resided at Wentworth Manor.
Pearl will be deeply missed by her family and friends, but all have peace knowing that she will spend eternity in Heaven with loved ones. Her children and grandchildren will have a private celebration of Pearl’s life in Calgary. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to a charity of your choice.
