Chesapeake — Eugena “Jean” Pearl, 73, passed away on September 21, 2015.

She was the loving wife of Daniel for 54 years. Jean was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on the eve of World War II . She and her family moved to Long Island when Jean was a teenager. There, she met Dan at her Sweet 16 and they were married three years later. Dan’s job took them all over the world, including living in Paris for two years.

Jean was a tough, feisty lady. Protective of family and friends, and doting on those in her life, especially her grandchildren and family pets, Jean was a wonderful, loving, caring and giving woman. She will be desperately missed by everyone who came into her life.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Dina Jorgensen (Erik), son, Ira (Leslie), daughter, Gayle Pearl (Susan Evans) and her grandsons, Ryan Jorgensen (Sarah) and Alex, and granddaughter, Sydney Pearl; as well as her much younger sister Abbey Eckelmann (Paul).

Graveside services took place at Forest Lawn Cemetery with Rabbi Israel Zoberman officiating. Donations to a favorite charity in Jean’s memory. H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts. Online condolences at
