Pearl Mabry Taylor was born August 29, 1935 in Crockett, Texas and passed from this life on Monday October 7, 2019 in Cypress, Texas to her eternal life with Christ.
Pearl had a great love for her family and is preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Carroll A. Taylor, her parents, Daniel and Abbie (Madden) Mabry, brothers M.H. Mabry, J. F. Mabry, Marshall Mabry, Cloise D. Mabry, and her sister Evelyn Mabry Pena. Today they all rejoice together.
Pearl was very proud of her East Texas roots, growing up in the Possum Walk and Pennington area of the East Texas Piney Woods. She attended school in Pennington and told stories about sneaking off to school with her older siblings even before she was old enough to attend. Though she and her husband Carroll called many other states their temporary home during their marriage, they always came back to those roots of East Texas. She was also very involved with church activities while serving as a pastor’s wife during her husband’s tenure as pastor of Full Gospel Chapel in Houston, Texas.
She loved spending time with her daughter, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking for her family and some of the happiest memories we have are of those gatherings around the dining room table enjoying a wonderful meal and sharing our life experiences, stories of the past, hopes for the future, and the everlasting bond of family.
Pearl is survived by her brother Billy Gene Mabry of New Caney, Texas, by her daughter Peggy Taylor-Slough of Point Blank, Texas, her granddaughters – Vanessa Ungvarsky and husband Kristopher of Easton Pennsylvania, Amanda Sanchez and husband Marcos of Houston, Texas, and Madeline Rendon of Point Blank, Texas her great grandsons – Devon King, Derek King, Jamison Ungvarsky all of Easton Pennsylvania, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, and extended church family.
The family greatly appreciates all of the condolences, uplifting comments and prayers received from numerous friends and extended family members during this difficult time. We ask those who can, to contribute to and support Parkinson’s disease research. Improved education, understanding, and treatment for this disease is desperately needed.
