Obituary of Pearl M. Banks
PEARL MAE BANKS
June 27, 1942- December 31, 2021
Pearl Banks, endearingly addressed as “Mama” by her family, was born in Batesburg, South Carolina on June 27, 1942, to her loving and devoted parents Laura and Gaster Banks Sr. After moving to Rochester, New York, she attended Rochester Equal Opportunity Center to become an LPN. A woman with immense pride, drive and dignity, Pearl paved the way for future nurses and medical professionals in her lineage.
Pearl was a loving and devoted daughter, sister, and friend, but most importantly, her family’s matriarch. With a loving heart and kind soul, she cared for her family and those who were lucky enough to be touched by her light. She was selfless in her actions and put her children, grandchildren, and friends first, before her own needs and wants.
Pearl shared her love for cooking, sewing, knitting, writing poems, drawing, and crafting with her family. Aside from her creative nature, she enjoyed seafood and outings to the casino with her friends and family. Pearl’s lively spirit and passion for those she loved, was infectious and made her the life of the party.
