Pearl Elizabeth Brant

July 22, 1927 — June 6, 2023


Pearl Elizabeth Brant, age 95, was called home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 at the Creekside Nursing Care Center in Hagerstown, Maryland after a long battle with dementia.

Born on July 22, 1927, in Cumberland, Maryland, she was the daughter of the late Frank “Travis” Tribuzio, an immigrant from Lenola, Italy, whom she adored, and the late Myrtle Alice (Dawson) Travis. Pearl took great pride in her Italian American heritage. She loved to share stories of her father and how he immigrated to the United States.

Pearl had a great love for animals, providing loving homes to several cats and dogs throughout her years. In her younger days, she enjoyed entertaining friends and family, cooking and baking. She relaxed by crocheting in her favorite chair and ending her evenings with a glass of wine. However, her favorite pastime was singing. Pearl had a beautiful singing voice and many fond and funny memories were made of her singing and playing her organ. She continued singing until her passing. Pearl never missed the chance to decorate for the holidays; Christmas was her absolute favorite.

Pearl is survived by her daughter, Christina “Chris” Lee and her husband, Bill Beltz; her sons, Harold “Jim” Lee and his wife, Cheryl, and Joseph Lee; grandchildren, Heather Nanda and her husband, Sid, RaeChell Catlett and her husband, Billy, Crystal Mullens and her husband, Dan, Justin Lee, Christina Lee, Amanda Lee and her husband, Kry Nichlany, and Diana Canaz and her husband, Gabe; great-grandchildren, Aidan Nanda, Kailyn Nanda, Chandler Mullens, Dawson Mullens, Branson Catlett, Brent Catlett, Landon Catlett, and Luna Canaz.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 40 years, Richard (Dick) H. Brant; and her brother, Paul Travis.

Final resting place ceremonies will be held at noon on Saturday, June 10, 2023 at Sunset Memorial Park, 13800 Bedford Road NE, Cumberland, MD 21502 with Rev. Randy Reid officiating. The family requests those in attendance to please meet at the mausoleum for services on Saturday.
