Ollie Mae Pearson, 95, widow of Marion Pearson, was called to her eternal home on Monday, October 26, 2020 at Sumter East Health and Rehab Center, Sumter. Born April 26, 1925 in Lee County, she was the daughter of the late Lucious Yates and Maggie Lue Butler-Scarborough. She was educated in the public schools of Lee County.
