Obituary: Pearl Roger – Lewiston Sun Journal



Roger Pearl

GRAY – On December 27, 2021, Pearl Roger passed away with her family by her side at the age of 77 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She worked hard as a mom, housewife and business partner before moving on and proudly retiring from Hallmark Cards in 2018 after 25 years of service. She and her husband Normand loved to travel in their RV and shared many memorable adventures with their family and friends. Pearl’s family was his pride and joy. She was a devoted wife and mother and cared deeply for her family and friends. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were sources of happiness and laughter, and she in turn gave them so much to be grateful for. She will be deeply missed. Pearl was determined, fun, resilient and courageous. She faced the changes in life as an adventure. At the age of 63, she was invited to move to Ohio to live on the lake where she made many wonderful friends and has been affectionately known as the “Mayor of North Coast Landing”. She honestly felt she had the best of both worlds, spending warmer months by the lake soaking up the sun and returning to Maine each fall for the vacation where she welcomed and spoiled each new great-grandchild. . Pearl loved life and could walk in circles around almost anyone. Pearl is survived by her daughters, Lisa Haines and her husband Calvin of Gray, Jo-Ann Smilek and her husband David of Beaver Falls, PA, her grandchildren, Lauren Smilek and her partner Joseph Showalter, Michael Smilek, Caitlin Campbell and her husband Edward Campbell, Bethany Hale and her husband Tyler Hale, and her four great-grandchildren, Clark and Nova Pearl Campbell, and Tristan and Cecilia Pearl Hale, and her brother Maurice Poirier of Lewiston. She was predeceased by her husband and love of her life, Normand Roger, parents Cécile and Lionel Poirier and her brother Roland Poirier. In honor of Pearl’s wishes and concerns for COVID, a private grave service for the immediate family will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Margaret Murphy Centers for Children, 415 Rodman Rd, Auburn, ME 04210C / O Michelle Hathaway
