Pearl was born to the late Lena Alexander Williams and Dalton Williams and raised in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. She grew up with four brothers, Junius "June", Charles, George, and Sidney.

 

After graduating from Breaux Bridge High School in 1967, for a short time, she attended Southern University (SU) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and then the University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL) in Lafayette, Louisiana.

 

Pearl was the biological mother of one child, Rashida Williams. However, many people considered Pearl, "Nanny Pearl", their surrogate mother.

 

She nurtured hundreds of kids, students, and adults over a beautiful 30+ year career. She spent the early years of her journey as a teacher at Alex Day Care and she spent her later years as the director at We Care Community Homes, working with intellectual disabled adults.

 

Pearl was free-spirited and she loved music, dancing and partying with family and friends.

 

She is survived by the love of her life, her son, Rashida "Shawn" Williams; grandchildren, Destin Weekly and Rashayna Williams; great-grandchildren, Denim and Dallas Weekly; her brothers, Junius (Irma), Charles (Gayle), George (Cheryl) and Sidney, Sr.; her sister-in-law, Debra Spikes; half-sister, Sharon Calais (Patrick); godchildren, Angela Henry Carmouche and Brandy Alexander; uncle, Matthew DeRouselle; aunts, Eula DeRouselle, Madeline Remaker, Alice Mae Alexander and Agnes Landor; also, Sarah Henry Jackson, Theresa Dalcourt, Sonya Sylvester, Linda Sam, Class of 1967; and a host of cousins, friends, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

 

She was preceded in death by her mother, Lena Alexander Williams, whom she cared for many years; father, Dalton Williams; maternal grandfather, George Alexander; and nephews, Christopher and George Daniel Williams.

 

Pallbearers will be Rahadia Williams, Destin Weekly, Kenneth Williams, Davin Williams, Sidney Williams, Jr. and Rayon Wiltz.
