<div itemprop="description">It is with a heavy heart we announce the death of Pearl Susan Welsh on December 31, 2020 in her ninety-fifth year. <br> <br>Pearl will be lovingly remembered by her sister Cecelia Rowcliffe, her children Susan of Pointe-Claire and Tom (Linda) of Fort Mill, South Carolina; her grandchildren Michelle Martin (Charles), Mark (Kristin), and Danielle (Dwight Horton); her great-grandson Christian; sister in law Ruth, many nieces, nephews and close friends. <br> <br>Preceded in death by her beloved husband Raymond of thirty-six years; siblings Joseph (Evelyn), Raymond, Rita, Paul, Teresa Mason (Howard) and Michael <br> <br>Pearl lived a rich and full life that brought constant joy to those around her. Raised in Saint-Henri and southwest Montreal during the depression, she never took hard work for granted or forgot her roots. Family was an unwavering priority and she treated every person she encountered with respect. <br> <br>Over the course of nine decades, Pearl spent almost every summer of her life with parents, siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews and immediate family on Lac St. François-Xavier in the Laurentians. She treasured the cottage her husband built in 1956, where she raised several generations of her family and taught them important life lessons and skills for more than 70 years. <br> <br>Pearl was a life-long member of the Girl Guides in Quebec. She joined the organization at the age of 11, became a leader in her twenties and in later years was an active member in a Trefoil Guild. She was a perennial fixture for hundreds of young girls at the Quebec Council’s Camp Wa-Thik-Ane in Morin-Heights. In 2015, she was recognized for 75 years of volunteering with the organization. In the span of her life, she visited Girl Guide World Centres in Switzerland, the United Kingdom and India with her fellow Guiders and dear late friends Daphne Sebag-Montefiore and Sheila Norman. <br> <br>Because of COVID-19 restrictions, a funeral will be held at a later date when family and friends can be together. Burial will follow at the National Field of Honour Cemetery in Pointe-Claire. <br> <br>The family would like to convey sincere gratitude to all doctors and nurses at the CLSC, NOVA West Island Home Care and Royal Victoria Hospital who treated her with respect and compassion. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Nova West Island or the charity of your choice. <br> <br>Pearl’s legacy of love, compassion and volunteerism will remain an inspiration and will continue to live on in all those who knew her. <br> <br>NOVA West Island - NOVA West Island 447 boul.
