Pearl Arlene (Farr) Naples, 97, of Wallingford, Connecticut died peacefully on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at Regency House in Wallingford. She was born in Portland, Maine on February 3, 1923 daughter of Harold and Josephine Farr. In the 1930’s, she worked in her parents bakery, delivering breads and pastries to local businesses in Portland Maine. She worked and took great pride in a Leather/Boot Factory sewing Army boots for our soldiers during WWII.

In the 1960’s Pearl enjoyed cooking Pheasant dinners, provided by her husband’s, Double N Pheasant farm, for area families during popular holidays. Pearl lived in Wallingford, for 70 years, many of them with her daughter Luanne.
Pearl never left the house without her Pride and Joy Kaitlyn (Granddaughter), who traveled on a regular daily routine through DD and Stop & Shop.
She drove a Wallingford public school bus for many years and worked as a crossing guard at E.C. Stevens Elementary School. Pearl took great pride in growing beautiful rose bushes in her yard and always had a puppy or two to love and care for.
