Edna Pearl Howard Hinson

November 21, 2020, 79, Goldsboro

Edna Pearl Howard Hinson received her heavenly reward on Saturday, November 21, 2020. Pearl was born in Lenoir County to the late Kirby and Kathleen Barwick Howard on January 30, 1941. In addition to her parents, Pearl was preceded in death by her siblings, Ann Wright, Gail Godwin, Helen Smith, Vernon Howard, and Pete Howard.

Pearl loved to be on the go. When she’d leave from home, there was no telling where she was going or what time she would be home. She absolutely loved to ramble.

You could count on Pearl’s weekly routines. Not even a force of nature could prevent her from her weekly appointment at the beauty shop. If there was a chance to eat at Village Steakhouse, she’d be right there. An outing to eat fish or steak was likely to happen at least twice each week, and she’d meet you in a minute to go to a Saturday morning movie.

Of all the movies and television shows Pearl watched in her life, nothing could compare to the classic Westerns. Even though she had every channel imaginable, no offering held a candle to Gunsmoke.

A trip to Myrtle Beach thrilled Pearl endlessly. Nothing was better than taking in the live-action at The Carolina Opry or the Alabama Theatre.

Pearl held a deep devotion to her family and would do anything for them. When it came to her great-grandchildren, she looked for every opportunity to spoil them. If they wanted it, they got it.

Pearl’s devotion to her family was only surpassed by her dedication to her Lord. She worshiped with the congregation at One Accord Ministry as often as she could.

A service to celebrate and remember Pearl’s life will be held by the graveside on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at 4:00 PM in Fairview Cemetery, La Grange.

Pearl is survived by her daughter, Rhonda Sutton; grandson, Zac Del Guercio; great-grandchildren, Scarlet Howard, Emerie Howard, and Kalleigh Howard; brothers, William Earl Howard, Sr., Cecil Howard, Dennis Howard, and Buzzy Lutter; and numerous nieces and nephews.
