Tim Pearson

March 21, 1925 — December 14, 2022

Tim Pearson, 97, went home with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 surrounded by his loved ones at the Center for Hospice Care, Mishawaka.

Born on March 21, 1925 in Troy, Ohio, he was the son of Charles and Eunice (Pierce) Pearson. He attended West Milton High School, graduating with the class of 1942. Tim received his Bachelor’s degree in education from Bethel University and a Master’s degree in education from Indiana University South Bend. He taught in the South Bend School corporation for 26 years. He also went to Oregon Bible School. He served as Head Pastor for over 25 years at several churches. He then served as Assistant Pastor at North Salem Church of God in Plymouth.

On June 14, 1975, he married Shirley DeMien in Plymouth, Indiana. They shared 47 wonderful years of marriage together.

Tim was very active in church. He also enjoyed singing with a gospel quartet, reading, woodworking, playing golf, and traveling. He hiked the Grand Canyon twice, once alone and again with his father-in-law, Walter. Tim seemed to always find his way to McDonald’s to have coffee with the guys. His most cherished memories were spending time with family and doing the work of the Lord. He always wanted to be known as the “Peacemaker.” (Matthew 5:9 and Malachi 3:16,17)

He is survived by his wife Shirley of Plymouth; children Jackie (Dennis) Meredith of AZ, Marc (Beth) Pearson of OK, brother in-law Glen DeMien, sister in-law Virginia DeMien, six grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, ten great-great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Tim is preceded in death by his parents, three siblings, and one granddaughter.
