|On Sunday June 1, 1980 at North Caddo Memorial Hospital in Vivian, Louisiana Pearl Everett Keasler was called to her Eternal Home.
Services were held in the Pine Tree Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Longview, Texas with burial in the family cemetery.
Mrs. Keasler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arch L. Everett, was born October 21, 1904 in Gregg County, Texas. She was educated in the public schools of that state and received her Master’s Degree in Education from George Peabody College for Teachers in Nashville, Tennessee.
Her keen interest in education was evidenced by the fact that she taught school for many years and left behind a host of admiring students who felt privileged to have had her as an instructor.
Some years later, she was united in marriage to the Reverend E. A. Keasler, an or-dained Methodist minister, and in time, their family circle was made complete with the ad-dition of a lovely daughter.
Mrs. Keasler was Reverend Keasler’s constant companion in the numerous places he served as minister and offered continuous support and encouragement in every phase of his church work.
In 1969, Reverend Keasler retired from his Mooringsport charge, resulting in their return to the family home in Longview, Texas.
Because of failing health in 1976, they once again made Mooringsport their domicile until the time of Mrs. Kessler’s death.
Pearl Kessler’s devotion to her Lord, her church, her family, and her friends under girded her entire life and she is sorely missed by all those who knew and loved her.
