The family spent time in North Dakota and Utah before settling back in Casper, where Rich helped his son at Huber Plumbing. Pearl was overjoyed to be home with her family, especially the grand and great-grandbabies.

Pearl loved her “job” — babysitter of all the grandchildren — and her time with her best friend, Carol, bowling. The two spent many years on Blaze Trucking, LLC and Huber Plumbing bowling leagues here at El Marko Lanes in Casper.

Pearl was preceded in death by her parents, grandson Richard David Garrett, brothers Ed Wombolt and Butch Wombolt, sister Betty Brecht, and sisters-in-law Valerie Unterseher and Melodie Unterseher.
