Obituary for Pearl L. Douglas (Roach)

Pearl L. Douglas (Roach)
Pearl L. Douglas, was the third of ten children born to the late Pearl and Everson Roach, Sr. in Smyrna, Delaware on February 9, 1951. She was called home by the Lord following a courageous fight against cancer and departed this life on April 1, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.

Pearl, known to many as “Sugarfoot,” had an angelic spirit but loved to laugh and have fun. She enjoyed singing and dancing, listening to Gospel music, reading, writing poetry and prayers, playing the piano, and spending time around her family and friends. She could also be occasionally found glued to the television in her kitchen watching TV westerns, especially following her favorite character, U S Marshall Matt Dillion on Gunsmoke.

As a young high school student attending a field trip, Pearl would meet her future husband Frederick Douglas (Freddie). She would go on to graduate from Dover High School in June of 1969 and would later marry Freddie in December of that same year. While Freddie served his country as a Marine in Vietnam, Pearl continued to work at Acme Market in Dover, where she began at age sixteen. She would work at Acme for twenty years. Following her retirement from Acme, Pearl worked at several places around Dover including Benbow’s, Carl King, Leggetts, and Bank of America. During her time at Bank of America, Pearl was diagnosed with breast cancer. With the strength of a Lioness, she defeated her cancer and spent her remaining years loving and enjoying her family and friends. Her caring spirit and grace carried her through again during her most recent fight with cancer. In her darkest hours, she often expressed concern about the wellbeing of others.

She is survived by her husband Mr. Frederick J. Douglas, Sr.; two (2) children, Frederick J. Douglas, Jr. and Patricia L. Blakey (Dusty); four (4) grandchildren, David J. Blakey, Samara R. Brinkley, Dominique N. Blakey and Daphne A. Blakey; and one great-grandchild, Shane R. Maddams. She also leaves nine (9) siblings: Evelyn Clayton (Robert), Doris Preston (Charles), Carrie Gunter (Rodney), Everson Roach, Jr., Warner Roach, Sr. (Stephanie), Charles Roach (Rosetta), Marian Favors, Joyce January (Kenneth), and Ronald Roach, and a host of extended family and friends.

Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support in our greatest time of need. Your thoughts, prayers, and kind words combined with our unwavering faith in God have helped us celebrate a life of love, hope, forgiveness, and service. Pearl left an indelible footprint on the life of every person she met. She truly embodied the meaning of her name. A pearl is defined as a precious jewel, something precious; the finest example of anything. She has left us all with her many precious pearls of wisdom.
