Pearl graduated from what was Rapid City High-school in 1966. A year later at the age of 18, Pearl had to have a tumor removed from her brain, which left her legally blind. Seven years later in spring of 1974, Pearl made the move to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She moved into the YWCA which was a living facility for single women, and she started that same year at a coffee shop which was located in what was the court house (now the administration building). She worked there for the next 30 years, making friends with judges, lawyers, city workers and anyone else that wandered into her coffee shop.
Pearl moved in with her lifelong friend Donna Short in 1986 and they resided together until 2006.
