Pearl (Moore) Boggs, 92, of Connersville, went home to be with the Lord at 11:10 a.m. Saturday, March 26, 2022 at home where she had been ill since February, 2022.
Pearl was born at home on April 4, 1929 in Jackson County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of Will and Chloe (Wilson) Moore.
She married the love of her life, Leonard Boggs, on February 22, 1947 and they came to Connersville for residence that same year. Leonard preceded her in death on December 8, 2010 after 63 years of marriage.
Pearl has two sons, Ken (Cheryl) Boggs of Tampa, Florida and Dan (Katina) Boggs of Huntington, Indiana; four grandchildren, Jenni (Kevin) Layman and Jayme (John) Bluffstone of Tampa, Florida, Angela (Russ) Conrad of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Danielle (Eric) Thompson of Arcadia, Indiana; ten great grandchildren, T.J. and Emma Layman, Jacob and Kaylee Bluffstone, Sophie and Bennett Conrad, Quinn, Kolton, Stone, and Michael Thompson; and a number of nieces, nephews and cousins.
Pearl has one surviving sister, Jean Bell of Oxford, Ohio. She was preceded in death by her other siblings, Lena Strong (Connersville), Lizzie Lewis (Ohio), Robert Moore, an infant brother, and her parents.
In addition to her sons and family, another great joy was her love of planting and growing a vegetable garden and flower garden. Everyone who visited her home of 60+ years was in awe of her stunning backyard filled with beautiful flowers and various vegetables. Pearl was known to share with friends, family, and strangers vegetables from her garden as well as gardening advice. She offered starts of her flowers and shared many of her flowers with others. Bringing the beauty inside, her home was also filled with delightful flowers all year long. A generous lady, Pearl was known to always provide a helping hand or a sweet treat with her neighbors, and she enjoyed making everyone laugh with her quick wit.
The family would like to thank her many friends who constantly in the past few years checked on Pearl either by stopping by or calling, including those who brought her groceries, newspapers, meals, etc. and also her mail lady who stopped by to say “hi” every day. We appreciate each and every one of you very much.
A funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 1, 2022 at Miller, Moster, Robbins Funeral Home where friends may visit from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. Reverend Tim Billups will officiate. Burial will be in Dale Cemetery.
