Pearl was born to Victor and Ardith Thies on Oct. 15, 1932, in the family home on S. Marion Street in Sandpoint. She was the oldest of six children. She lived her entire life in Bonner County and waited tables at Connie’s, The Kaniksu, The Pastime, The Edgewater, Talache Lodge, Traveler’s and The Litehouse before working for the post office for 30 years.
