Pearlene Bealer was born on January 17, 1948, in Thebes, Arkansas to the late James Bealer, Sr. and Mary Abner Wimberly Bealer. She grew up alone with her siblings in Thebes. The Bealer family later moved to Monticello, Arkansas in 1959. She was employed at School Apparel, Burger King, Burlington Industries and she did private in-home sitting.
Pearlene was a member of First Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Highshaw, the late Rev. York Williams, Jr., the late Rev. Henry F. Richardson, and Rev. Graylin Wilson. She later joined First Baptist Eastside Church under the leadership of Rev. James Simpson where she remained a faithful member until her death.
She entered into the Lord's Kingdom on September 16, 2023, at Drew Memorial Hospital. Pearlene loved the Lord, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her great-great-grandchildren. Pearlene never met a stranger and she always had a word and a scripture that she shared with everyone. Everyone will miss her daily scriptures and knowledge about the Lord that she shared on Facebook. She loved the Arkansas Razorbacks no matter what sport it was. Mother Bealer was a great joy to be around always making sure others were taken care of.
She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, James Bealer, Jr., Virginia Bealer, and Lee Arner Bealer; a daughter, Antoinette ''Peaches'' Brooks; and a grandson, Undra Lambert, Jr.
She leaves to cherish her memories her son, Alfonza Anderston (Angelia); daughter, Andrea Thomas (Charles); grandchildren, Barry, Bambi, Brandon, Zelda, Ryan, Shaquanta, ShaDonna, Quintella, Quarhonda, QuaShundra; as well as a host of great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren whom she loved dearly; special niece, LaRhonda Johnson; and special friends, Virgie Smith, Betty Sue Johnson, Mary Raine, and Sis.
