PEARL GREEN (published on April 17, 2006)

PEARL GREEN Pearl Green, born December 25, 1923, passed into the arms of God on Saturday, April 15, 2005, in Gimli Community Health Center at the age of 82. Left to mourn her passing are daughter Florence (Mickey), granddaughter Laura, grandson Gary, sisters Evelyn and Bertha, brother Clem and numerous nieces and nephews. Pearl was predeceased by her parents Dan and Nancy McKay, husband Gordon, sons Larry and Gordon, twin sister Florence, sister Myrtle, brothers Art, Roy, Walter, Edward and baby McKay. Pearl was a veteran of the Second World War, an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, St. James Branch 4, for 49 years and Branch 182 in Gimli for two years. She was an avid Bingo player in her later years, loved to talk with old friends, as well as her fellow patients in Betel Home Foundation. She was particularly happy near the lake in Gimli, spending many hours in her power chair on the lake shore, reliving memories of her childhood by the lake in Amaranth, MB, where she was raised. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Betel in Gimli for providing Mom with excellent care, comfort and preserving her dignity during her time at the home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. God looked upon His garden and found an empty space, He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest, God's garden must be beautiful for He only takes the best. God saw the road was getting rough, the hills were hard to climb, He closed your weary eyes and whispered, Peace to thine. A golden heart stopped beating, working hands put to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. It broke our hearts to lose you, but, you did not go alone, For part of us went with you to God's garden, your new home. Please hold her in your arms and treasure her with care, Make up for all she suffered and all she had to bear. Please whisper in her ear in case she didn't hear, How much we truly love her and wish she was still here. In accordance with Pearl's wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service, conducted by her nephew, Vince Anderson, will be held on Friday, April 21, 2006 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Christ, 217 Osborne Street, North. A private family interment will be held at a later date. Gilbart Funeral Home in care of arrangements.
