Pearl married Ivan Norris Sr. and they shared 3 sons; Karl Norris Sr., Erric Norris Sr. and Ivan Norris Jr. Pearl worked as a nursing assistant for many years at St. Vincent Charity Hospital. Several years after retiring, in 1985, Pearl pursued her dream of owning her own farm in Sarahsville, OH. The farm was her one true place of happiness.

She also enjoyed gardening and watching horror movies.
