Obituary: Pearl Louise McAllister Rees

6/24/1903 ~ 3/8/2003

On March 8, 2003, our mom and grandmother peacefully passed away at home, three months short of her 100th birthday.

Mom was born June 24, 1903 to George and Elizabeth McAllister, the 10th of 11 children. She married Dad, Theodore Gomer Rees Oct 11, 1930. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Mom was the proud mother of three sons and played a significant role in rearing her oldest granddaughter, Georgia. She was always willing to give freely of her time to both her immediate and extended family and coordinated many family reunions.

She was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in many capacities, but her love was in the Primary.

Pearl is survived by her sons, Ted (Terry), Corey (Karen); 11 grandchil-dren; and 10 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband; son, George Vaughn, his wife, Virginia; and three great-grandchildren, David, Hillary, Matthew.

Services will be Wed. Mar 12, 2003, 12 noon Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple. Friends may call Tues. 6-8 p.m. or Wed. one hour prior to services.
