At the early age of 10 she united with Zion Watch Missionary Baptist Church where she served on the Usher Board for over 60 years. She loved Pastor Dredd and her Zion Watch Church family.

She would often say “take it to the Lord in Prayer and he would work it out.” Ola Pearl passed away on September 10, 2017 at the Medical Center of South Arkansas.
