Pearl B. Hughes Kilpatrick


Pearl B. Hughes-Kilpatrick, 91, of Orchard Manor, formerly of Harrisville, passed away peacefully on March 4, 2019.
Pearl was born on June 8, 1927, in Clay Township, Butler County. She was the daughter of Asa William and Blanche Grossman Say.
Pearl graduated from Zelienople High School in 1948. After graduation from high school, Pearl married Marcel Hughes on July 13, 1949, at Harrisville First Presbyterian Church. They had three children.
Pearl worked for Bell Telephone Co. as a telephone operator. She also worked alongside her husband Marcel for many years at Penn Gold Ice Cream Co. in Harrisville. Pearl enjoyed bowling, golfing and other social activities including The Order of The Eastern Star. Pearl was a member of Friendship Presbyterian Church and was active in the church choir, the quilting group and many other church activities.
Loved ones left to cherish her memory are her children, Gary Hughes and his wife Mary Ann of Harrisville, Sandra Hooven and her husband James of Jamestown, N.Y., and Brian Hughes and his wife Kimberly of Port St. Lucie, Fla. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Alicia and Eric Hooven, Jacob Hughes, Nicole Shaffer, Lindsay and Caroline Hughes; four great-grandchildren; and her sisters, Betty Waechter of Kansas City, Kan., and Margie Thompson of Meadville.
Pearl was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Marcel, who passed away in 1995; her second husband, James W. Kilpatrick, who passed away in 2016; and two brothers, Robert Say and Clarence Say, who passed away in childhood.
The Hughes family would like to extend their deepest thanks to the staff at Orchard Manor for the kind and compassionate care Pearl received while she was there and also thank the caring staff at Home 2 Me in Slippery Rock, PA.
The family suggests in lieu of flowers memorial contributions be made in Pearl's memory to Orchard Manor, the Friendship Presbyterian Church or to the Grace United Methodist Church in Grove City.
