Lillian Blanche Pearson

Bethany Presbyterian member was homemaker

---- — A funeral service will be held Friday for Lillian Blanche Pearson, a resident of The Ridgewood, St. Paul’s, 339 E. Jamestown Road, West Salem Township. She entered into eternal rest at 6:49 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. She recently celebrated her 95th birthday.

Lillian was born Dec. 26, 1917, to William Irwin and Blanche Loutzenhiser Kamerer. Upon the death of her mother, Lillian was reared by her paternal grandparents.

She attended the former Penn High School in Greenville.

Lillian was a homemaker and was later employed in retail shops, including nine years at Taylor Furs in Mercer.

For a time, she was church organist in what was then St. John’s United Church of Christ near Fredonia.

Lillian was a member of Bethany Presbyterian Church, Mercer.

Love of family was most important in her life, after which came music, crossword puzzles and playing cards with friends.

Lillian loved people and was a friend to many. She thoroughly enjoyed her life at The Ridgewood, taking part in the many activities and programs provided for residents.

Survivors include two daughters, Gloria Podlaski and her husband John, Mercer; and Dottie Seger and her husband Richard, Fredonia; and three stepchildren, Carol McCann and her husband Bob, Rock Hill, S.C.; Kay Davidson and her husband Edward, Lothian, Md.; and Dean E. Pearson and his wife Mary Ellen, Harrisville.

Besides her husbands, Lillian was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, Howard, Victor and Edgar Kamerer; a stepbrother, James Davidson; a daughter, Carol Celender; a son, William Wagner; and a stepdaughter, Mary Jo Palmer.
