Pearl was born on March 26, 1928, to John and Caroline (Kiesel) Blaich in New Salem, ND. Pearl graduated from New Salem High School in 1947. She worked at St. Alexius Hospital for four years. Pearl met Herbert Heid in New Salem, and they married on July 12, 1952. Together they were blessed with three children. Herbert was a Boilermaker and his jobs took the family to many areas, living around the United States and finally making their home in Mandan for over 40 years. Throughout the years, they found great joy working together in their large garden which created lasting memories for their children and grandchildren. Pearl also enjoyed sewing and was very proud of her projects and clothing that she sewed.
Pearl was a member of the Mandan United Methodist Church and held officer positions in the United Methodist Women's Groups. She delivered Meals on Wheels, and has been a strong supporter and advocate for the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery.
