WELLSVILLE, OHIO – Pearl H. Capraruolo, 97, a longtime resident of Thompson Avenue in East Liverpool passed away Saturday, June 29, 2019 at her daughter’s home.

She was a graduate of East Liverpool High School class of 1942 and went to Ohio Valley Business College on the G.I. Bill. Pearl was a veteran of the US Marine Corp honorably serving during WW II as a corporal in the Women’s Reserve from 1943 – 1945. After her service in the Marines she worked at Ogilvie's in the giftware department and later became a sportswear buyer.

Pearl was a member of Holy Trinity Parish at St. Aloysius since the mid 1930’s. She was an active member of the church serving on the Altar and Rosary Society. Pearl truly cared for the church and its many activities. She was also a member of the Olde Guard.

Pearl loved traveling with her late husband Sam after his retirement. She also loved taking care of her family, always involved with their many activities.

My condolences to the family. Pearl was my sitter in 1939..and was a terrific person who always remembered me when I sought her out in ELHS Alumni days...She was a great person and how sweet and caring she was in remembering my family and interesting to learn of all. I will miss searching for her face when I come back to ELO.. God gave us one great caring person.

It was an honor to participate in Pearl's services and to spend time with her family and friends. Women like her are few and far between. On behalf of women Marines past, present and future, I thank Pearl for her faithful, dedicated service to our Corps in our country's time of need. God bless her and those she loved.

Butch, Kate, Sara and family: Please accept mine and John's sincere sympathies in the loss of Mrs. Capraruolo. I just read the on-line obituary notice in the newspaper. She was a delightful lady and always warm and friendly whenever I had the chance to see her! Our prayers are with the family at this time. Tim Leake and John Nave
