Pearl was born in Lenoir County on July 9, 1937 to the late William Henry Hill and Josie Corinne Lee Hill. She was married to the late Dean Head who preceded her in death on August 2, 2014. Pearl was a member of Harvest Baptist Church and was a dedicated and faithful servant. She was very involved in the work of the Free Will Baptist Orphanage in Middlesex and would participate in their homecoming celebrations each year. Pearl was the kindest and most loving mother and grandmother and a great friend to everyone. She will be missed by all who were blessed enough to know her.

Lawrimore and husband Jerry of Chesapeake VA, Paula Dean Letchworth Cobb and husband Michael of Wilson, Pamela Jean Letchworth of Wilson; grandchildren, Staci Olmstead and husband Joe, Andrea Gilbert and husband Jacob, Rachel Cobb; and four great-grandchildren, Mia, Alexander, Barrett, and Nicholas. She is also survived by her sisters, Margie Casper and husband Billy, Janice Lee Cole; brothers, William Jerry Hill and wife Sue and Ted Hill; and several nieces and nephews she loved very much.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her infant son, Little Paul Letchworth.

The family will receive friends following the service Tuesday evening at Seymour Funeral Home, and at other times at her home in Kirkwood Retirement Community and the home of her daughter, Pamela Jean Letchworth in Wilson.
