Pearl A. Sweeney of Bellingham, WA passed away unexpectedly on August 26, 2014. Born Pearl Agnes White on September 15, 1930 in Vancouver, British Columbia to Isabella and James White. She grew up in Vancouver and began her career as a legal secretary before meeting the love of her life, Robert (Bob) Parker Sweeney of Bellingham, Washington in 1953.

Pearl and Bob have been devoted parents to three children and grandparents to several grandchildren who have witnessed 60 years of devoted love and friendship. Pearl retired in 1992 after 24 years of faithful service as secretary of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Bellingham where she cared for many in need of her hospitality and support. Known for her sharp wit and generosity, for over 55 years she was a loyal friend to her neighbors on Huron Street in Bellingham.

Pearl was preceded in death by her parents as well as siblings Ella and Bill.

  1. I have so many great memories of trips and social get togethers with you and Bob. I just found out this weekend that you and Sweeney have both passed and I’m so sad that I had not seen you both for way tooooooo long.
    You were both such a joy to me and Danny. After Danny passed I didn’t seem to get together with people like I should have. I regret that I hadn’t seen you two for so long.
    Love and hugs …. dance with the stars now that you are together again.

  2. My deepest sympathy to Pearl’s family and friends. As we think about our loved ones that have died and how they leave an imprint on our heart, we find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. I hope the scriptures I’m sharing below will bring you a bit of comfort now and always when you think of Pearl. Acts 24:15- There will be a resurrection Revelation 21:4- “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.the former things have passed away. I am truly sorry for your loss.
