She was blessed to have ten siblings, Ervin Anderson, Doreen Loomis, Floyd Anderson, Carol Haller, Harvey Anderson, Johnny Jorgensen, Linda Buchholz, Ella Bell, Ester Black, and Bobby Jorgensen. Pearl will be remembered as a passionate, genuine, generous and soft-spoken devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Pearl married Everett Crosby in 1946 in Everett Washington. Together they raised five children, Terry Crosby, Linnet Conn, Susan (Mike) Brunson, Barbara (Bob) VanGordon, and Julie (Dan) Brannon. Pearl endlessly loved her family through her devoted care giving. She shared her passions of gardening, bird watching, baking, and summer vacations to Minnesota with her children. Her seven grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and children were the absolute joys of her life. Their involvement in her life kept her spirit young. Pearl was also hard working and owned Crosby Catering for 47 years. She was a competitive bowler where she gained many lifelong friends until the age of 92. Pearl never missed a Tigers game and loved playing cards. After Everett’s passing, Pearl married Tom Smith. They bowled and enjoyed many winters in Florida. Years later after Tom's passing, she had the good fortune to share nine special and enduring years of love with Percy Dunn until his passing in 2008. She shared two step-children, Penny Finley, and Mike (Judy) Dunn and extended family with him. She gained a special friendship with Chalmers Field for the past five years and adored their weekly lunch and scrabble dates.
