Muriel Hyman affectionately known as Pearl was born on the 28th of April in 1947 in Trelawny, Jamaica, West Indies. Pearl had to make the difficult decision to leave her late son Hardly and the rest of her family for an opportunity to migrate to the United States in the late 1970s for a chance at a better life.
Pearl was an extremely hardworking and independent woman. South Florida became her new home where she created many memories and friends whom became Family. Most of her later years were spent living with the Sherwood family until her passing. Pearl spent the majority of her life working in the hospitality industry providing services to private families and senior living facilities. Her longest tenure was with Heartland Health Care Center in Lauderhill, FL where she dedicated over 20 years of her life until retirement.
After retiring Pearl then became increased her activism at her church where she deepened her relationship with GOD and cultivated her relationships with her spiritual Family which led to her baptism in October 2020.
Pearl lived a very disciplined life where she was able to show her strength day in and day out managing several health concerns. Her strength was unwavering.
Pearl was a woman filled with love and laughter who always had a joke or “old-time” proverb to share, however we will never be able to forget that high pitched voice with abundant laughter.
Left to celebrate her life are her Sister Beverly Thomas, Niece Dawn Thomas, God Children (Tonya Edwards, Anthony Sherwood, Delorie Carter, and Christopher Lyn), relatives, friends, and a host of inherited God Children.
She will be missed!
