Pearl Callahan Domingue

Pearl Callahan Domingue, 100, of Beaumont, Texas, passed away peacefully Friday, June 13, 2014. She was the first born child of Rose LaFosse Callahan and Eli Callahan, who lived in the community of Ged, Louisiana.
Pearl moved with her family to Hackberry where she spent much of her youth. She had many fond memories of Hackberry, which always held a special place in her heart. Pearl was educated at St. Charles Academy in Lake Charles. In 1933, she married Elton P. Domingue and they shared 60 happy years together. A loving and devoted wife and mother, Pearl’s sweet and gentle nature enriched the lives of her family and friends. Although Elton and Pearl lived throughout Louisiana and Texas, they eventually settled in Morgan City. In her later years, she resided in Beaumont to be closer to her Callahan family.
Pearl will be remembered for her thoughtful ways, her gracious spirit, and sweet personality. She was a homemaker who dearly cared for her family and friends and always strived to do her best to make a loving home. Pearl frequently said she was blessed to have a “good life”. She also would profess that she was privileged to have lived through a span which covered “the primitive to the modern.”
She was preceded in death by her husband, Elton; daughter, Barbara Jean Domingue; parents; twin brothers, Ernest Callahan and Carl Callahan; and sister, Catherine Kyle.
Survivors include her daughter, Jerrie Ann Sachitano of Beaumont; granddaughter, Judith S. Rawls and her husband, Robert L., of Beaumont; and sister, Elaine Monteau, of Sour Lake.
A gathering of Ms. Domingue’s family and friends will begin at 10 a.m., with a Mass of Christian Burial. Service to be celebrated at 11 a.m., Tuesday, June 17, 2014, at St. Theresa of The Child Jesus Catholic Church, 4822 Carlyss Drive, Carlyss, La., with interment to follow at Mimosa-Pines Cemetery, Carlyss, La., under the direction of Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont.
