Obituary for Pearl Evelyne Norton (Brell)

NORTON – Pearl Evelyne (Covello) (nee Brell) 1921-2022

We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Pearl Evelyne Norton (nee Brell). Surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, at the age of 100. Beloved wife of the late James Norton for 23 years. Predeceased by her first husband, Alfred Covello.
Dear mother of David Covello (Judy), Anne Marie Covello-Baxter (Steven), Brian Covello (Louisa) and Patrick Covello (Mary Jane). She is survived by her sister, Violet Valliere, and predeceased by brother, Thomas Brell, and her beloved, son Dennis Covello (Debbie).
She will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren: Daniel, Carla, Andrew, Ashleigh, Ryan, Julia, Eric, Thomas and her great-grandchildren Nixon, Olivia and Amelia. The family is grateful to her long-time caregivers: Bonnie, Tracey and Asia who helped Pearl maintain her cherished independence.
Pearl led a full independent life into her centennial year and was a quick and loyal friend to all she met. An avid reader and perennial accountant, she kept current and was never far from her pencil and notes. She faced the many challenges in her life with strength and tenacity, looking forward to the next bright day.
Special thank you to the Greater Niagara General Hospital ER, for the care and response during her brief illness.
A private family service will take place at Victoria Lawn Cemetery, St. Catharines.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Canadian Hearing Association in her memory are greatly appreciated.
