Ernes­tine Pear­son

San Francisco Chronicle - - BAY AREA -

April 18, 1921 - No­vem­ber 2, 2018

Born on April 18,1921. At rest on All Souls Day, No­vem­ber 2, 2018, at age 97. Proud daugh­ter of Jose Lopez and dear sis­ter to the late Amer­ica Gar­cia and Del­fina Contreras.

She is pre­de­ceased by the love of her life, Robert James Pear­son. Lov­ing mother to Robert J. Pear­son (Linda) and Bar­bara J. Har­vey (Thomas). Adored grand­mother to Robin Gro­chol (Steve), Lau­ren Fire­baugh, Thomas Har­vey (Colleen), Kris­ten Har­vey (Vanessa). Ste­fani Pear­son and Kim­berly Cahill (An­drew). She was the proud great grand­mother to Ryan and Reese Gro­chol; Mag­gie, Tommy, An­nie, and Brid­get Har­vey; Finley and Abby Fire­baugh; and Noalani and Cooper Cahill. Cher­ished Aunt to Rose­marie Scrosati and the late Anita Wasser­berger.

Ernes­tine was a Cos­me­tol­o­gist, a home­maker, needle­point and slot ma­chine ex­traor­di­naire. She was a fan of Joe Mon­tana’s 49ers and the San Fran­cisco Gi­ants. She en­joyed knit­ting, sewing, and was an ex­cel­lent gar­dener. She could bring an ap­par­ently dead plant back to life. Most im­por­tantly, she was a “baby whis­perer.” Chil­dren of all ages were drawn to and en­ter­tained by her. Ernes­tine was a res­i­dent of Ash­ton Av­enue for over seven decades. Her kind and self­less heart still beats within all of us. She will be greatly missed and re­mem­bered fondly.

A spe­cial thank you to her neigh­bor, Chris Moreno, for his gen­eros­ity and kind sup­port.

A Vigil Ser­vice will be held on No­vem­ber 13th at 7 pm at McAvoy O’Hara Co.

A Fu­neral Mass will be cel­e­brated on No­vem­ber 14th at 11 am at Saint Ce­cilia Church, fol­lowed by en­tomb­ment at Holy Cross Ceme­tery.
