Many Webster Groves residents will remember Pearl. She was the little lady who served so faithfully at the Webster Groves Library polling place. Pearl’s actual career as a poll worker began years ago, many in the years of World War II. Her family cannot remember a single election in which she did not proudly serve her community as a poll supervisor.
