Pearl M. (Trombley) Castori

Pearl M. (Trombley) Castori, 100, formerly of Charlotte Road, Ipswich and beloved wife of the late Guy R. Castori, died Monday, September 21, 2020 at the Kirkwood Corners Assisted Living Facility in Lee, New Hampshire of natural causes.

Born in Pittsfield on June 3, 1920, Pearl was one of ten children of the late Thomas and Violet Trombley. She was raised in Adams where she attended public school. As a young woman she was employed as a seamstress, a hair stylist and during the years of WWII she was pleased to be employed at a candy factory. Following Guy's Army discharge they soon married in Lynn and in 1955 made their home in Ipswich.

Pearl was a master seamstress who enjoyed embroidery, zig-saw puzzles and various home crafts. She was the proud 2nd place winner of an embroidered rug contest at Topsfield Fair in the early 1960s and, in the 1970s, she worked at the former New England Stores in Ipswich.

She’ll always be remembered by family and friends as a loving mother, grandmother and “life of the party.”

Pearl is survived by her son, Paul Castori and his wife Lea of New Hampshire; two grandchildren, Aria Hill and her husband Jake of Illinois, Aidan Castori and his wife Hannah of New Jersey and  three great grandchildren, Theodore Hill, Abigail Castori and Jane Castori. She is also survived by a brother, Ronald Trombley and two sisters; Joan Southerd of Washington, Massachusetts and Ruthann Rheaume of Kansas as well as many nieces and nephews. Private arrangements are under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.
