Obituary of Arlethia Moody Pearson

Mrs. Arlethia Moody Pearson, age 90 of Burlington Massachusetts departed this life on Sunday January 30,2022 at Arberjona Rehab Center, Winchester Massachusetts.

Arlethia, daughter of Katherine Robinson and Alvin Russell Moody was born on September 14, 1932, in Northampton, Virginia.

She was educated through the Roanoke Rapids City school district, where she joined the girls’ basketball team. I would love to believe her skills were like Kobe, but all of them bloody nose stories resemble Lebron to me.

She had a love for her family, fishing, cooking, dancing, and giving back to others. Her loving soul took care of so many friends and family, she was the ultimate care giver free of charge. MA is what the city of Cambridge called her. She was either serving you her 50 cent koolaide icy, having you bob for apples out the kiddie pool, or giving you a bag of chips for $25 cent. The Walden Square grandmother, that looked after all the neighborhood kids. Her weekends were spent with grandkids in her waterbed, Catching Bass or rolling that Strike down that bowling lane. She was not shy to bust a move wherever she heard tunes. So active and full of life, pre-retirement she lived. Age with her was just a number.

She was employed at the Harvard Manor nursing home and retired from being a Cambridge City Crossing guard after many years of service.

Arlethia is preceded in death by her husband Writtie Lee Pearson; two grandchildren, George Crawford, and Crystal Pearson. Those remaining to cherish her memory are her three sons Jeffrey Pearson, Craig Pearson and Mark Pearson; One daughter, Sylvia Pearson; Nine Grandchildren, Craig Pearson, Lance Clarke, Tatyana Pearson, Jaydah Pearson, Desiree Pearson, Devon Pearson, Mark Pearson, Jemi Pearson, and Jaden Aleman; Eight great grandchildren, Aundre Pearson, Xzavier Nelson, Jessiah Aguilera, Serenity Aguilera, Jonah Aguilera, Nathaniel Pearson, Ermias Pearson, Ku’mari Marcus Pearson and Lucas Clarke, other relatives and many friends. Visiting hours in the Burns Funeral Home, 305 Broadway, Cambridge, Friday, February 4, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. Relatives and friends invited.
