Pearl Hall

Pearl's daughter, Joan, is married to Barry Elliott.

Joan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 1997. They sold their home outside Edmonton and bought a trailer so they could be together at Barry's work. Barry retired from pipeline construction and consulting and these two events freed them up for some travel and visiting with their eight grandchildren. Pearl's daughter, Janice has retired, left Calgary and moved to Abbotsford, BC to be near her daughter and grandchildren.

Editor's Note: Pearl Hall passed away April 13, 2001.
