Margaret Pearl Albright, 83, of Calumet, died Sunday, June 14, 2020 at Redstone Highlands, Greensburg where she resided for the past year. She was born March 10, 1937 in Mt. Pleasant, a daughter of the late Herbert J. and Evagene C. (Schweinsburg) Bennett. Pearl worked at the former Union Apparel in Norvelt until it closed in 2001 and for a time served as a union president. She began her second career at what was known as St. Joseph’s Hall in Greensburg until her retirement in 2015 where she made many acquaintances and left behind some dear friends. Many will remember Pearl for her delicious baked goods, especially the thousands of lady fingers that she rolled and filled each year for Christmas and Easter. She was a wonderful baker and honored each of her children by designing and baking their wedding cakes and their wedding cookies that filled many take home bags! For as long as she was able, nineteen places were lovingly set every Sunday at 5:00 to gather all her kids and grands for supper. Most of all she will be remembered for her kindness, selflessness, and the love that she had for her family, especially the grandchildren who meant the world to her. She is survived by her son Chuck and wife Nancy of Norvelt, daughter Debbie Miney and husband Dave of Wilpen, son Scott and wife Kim of Mt. Pleasant, son Wes and wife Marci of Norvelt and her daughter Christine Snyder of Monroeville. Also survived by her grandchildren which were her pride and joy, Mike Albright and wife Robin of Norvelt, Sarah Albright and fiancée Nick Rega of Mt. Pleasant, Dillon and Rachel Albright of Norvelt, and Daniel, Nicholas and Christopher Snyder of Monroeville, her brother Jim Bennett and wife Elsie of Mt. Pleasant, sisters-in-law, Mary Jane Weaver and husband Sam of Berea, OH, Louise Wilson and husband Bill of Whitesboro, NY and Emily Newman and husband William “Bear” of Greensburg and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
