Pearl Puckett SloneOctober 4, 1925 ~ March 27, 2017 (age 91)
Pearl Puckett Slone, 91, of Huntington, WV, went to be with her Lord on March 27, 2017. Born October 4, 1925 she was a daughter of the late Sylvester and Mae Thompson Puckett of Hamlin, WV. Pearl was the devoted and loving wife of the late Buster “Bo” Slone. She is survived by her five girls whom she loved very much, Linda, Kaye, Debbie, Judy and Sheila. She loved her son-in-laws, Richard, Charlie, Jimmy and the late Roger Burcham and Roger Smith. She appreciated everything they did for her. Pearl was the beloved Mommaw of 7 grandchildren, Pam, Sherry, Lisa, Kim, Roger, Heather and Charlene; fifteen great-grandchildren, Kirsten, Suraiya, Devin, Mikayla, Kayla, Tripp, Chelsey, Joshua, Ciarra, Cashius, Crystal, Robert, Jason, Brittany and Christina. To them, she was Granny. She is also survived by 2 brothers, Harold and Darrel; one sister, Anna Lee and many nieces and nephews. In her earlier years, she loved shelling and spending time at the beach. She loved the Lord and was baptized on July 3, 1994 in the Lower Mud River with many family and friends there to witness. Pearl will be greatly missed by those that knew her and loved her. We will forever be reminded of her in the sweetness of an apple, scarlet kissed petals of roses in summer and the poinsettia of winter, the red setting sun over a beach or a river, the wings of a cardinal or the tulips of spring. For if you really knew her then you would know that anything red was her thing. A Special thank you to Heartland of Riverview Nursing Home and Hospice who took wonderful care of her and comforted her in her last days. Funeral Services will be held at 12:00 Noon on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at Beard Mortuary in Huntington, with Dallas Moore, officiating. Burial will follow at Maddox Swann Cemetery in West Hamlin. The family will welcome friends one hour prior to the service.
