Marlborough – Arlene Pearl of Marlborough, formerly of Pittsford, N.Y. and Little Neck, NY, died Aug. 12, 2018. She was born Nov. 28, 1932 in the Bronx, N.Y. to the late Ella and Daniel Levy.
She is survived by her loving children, Margery Pearl Gurnett (Denis Gurnett) and Daniel Pearl (Shelagh Ellman-Pearl), as well as her devoted granddaughter, Lily Pearl.
As a young woman, Arlene traveled alone to far-flung locations to deliver air tickets for her mother’s travel agency. In 1952, she proposed to and married Paul Pearl, and together they raised their children in Little Neck. Arlene and Paul moved to Pittsford to be near Margery, and lived there for 14 years.
Arlene’s world grew a lot smaller when her beloved Paul died in early 2016. Arlene subsequently moved to the Boston area to be near their son’s family.
Arlene was a person of many interests, including travel, finance, golf, bowling, dancing, art, yoga, cooking and nutrition. She enjoyed her frequent shopping trips into Manhattan while maintaining the family home.
Services were conducted privately in Massachusetts with immediate family. Arlene will be interred at White Haven Memorial Park in Pittsford, N.Y.
Arlene’s family will be receiving visitors Monday, Aug. 20, 6-9 p.m., at 15 Buffalo Run, Southborough.
