CAMDEN — Pearl Knight Wadsworth passed away on Aug. 21, 2022 at Quarry Hill at the age of 104 from complications of heart disease.

She was born in Melvin Heights, Camden on April 29, 1918, the daughter of Ralph and Carrie (Start) Knight. Pearl graduated from Camden High School and soon thereafter started her career at Camden National Bank for over 40 years.

Pearl married Virgil C. Jackson, from Winthrop, Maine and raised his two sons, David and Glenn as her own. Their son, Thomas, was born in 1956 in Camden. Virgil passed away in 1959 and Pearl married Elmer (Woody) Wadsworth in 1961. Pearl continued working at Camden National Bank until her retirement. She and Woody then retired to Venice, Florida, for the winters where they enjoyed golf at Bird Bay Golf Club and when returning for the summers at the Rockland Golf Club. They loved to travel, and she was an avid bridge player. Her other hobbies included reading, puzzling and walking every day. During her extraordinary life she lived through two World Wars, the Great Depression and two global pandemics.

Pearl was predeceased by her parents; her sons, David and Glenn Jackson; their father, Virgil Jackson; her sisters, Marion and Barbara; her brothers, Alden and Frank; her husband, Elmer Wadsworth; her brothers-in-law, Orion and Charlie Wadsworth and her brother-in-law Oliver Jackson.
