Pearl was born the same year as Albert Einstein, the same year the electric light was invented! Pearl was a school teacher: 2 years Snow Hill Country School, Labette County, Kansas; 2 years Roberts Country School, Montgomery County, Kansas; 3 years Baxter Springs City Schools; 2 years Coffeyville, Kansas City Schools.
Upon the death of her husband, Kelso, in 1918, Pearl and her daughter, Kathryn Vesta Kemper, returned to Coffeyville, Kansas, where Pearl worked for the Ford Motor Company and where Kathryn graduated high school in 1930. They then moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and then to Chicago, Illinois, where Pearl kept house for Kathryn and two or three boarders. They then moved to Dallas, Texas, in 1941. When her daughter married Howard Day in 1942, Pearl gave them $1,200 for the down payment on their house at 3405 Mockingbird Lane. The purchase price was $4,750. (The house was sold in May, 2000, for $250,000.) The day of her brother, Jim's, funeral in Sulphur Springs, Pearl collapsed in the backyard of his home. She was transported to Dallas and gradually became a bed-ridden invalid. In 1968 Pearl went into Doctors' Nursing Center in Dallas, Texas, where Kathryn attended to her every need until Pearl's death, April 4, 1970. She is buried in Coffeyville, Kansas, alongside Kelso Kemper.
