Glynis Marie Boyce-Pearl was born November 11,1964 in the Bronx, New York to Herman Boyce and Ophelia Boyce (Miller). Glynis was the 5th child of seven siblings. Glynis was a pro at whatever she put her mind to. She attended Grace Dodge Vocational High School and Baruch College in New York. While in college she realized the United States Air Force was where she wanted to be. So she joined and served with great pride. Glynis received many accolades over the years as a professional administrative assistant. Helping others is at the core of who she was, and she welcomed the opportunity to be a support. Glynis loved to cook, read books, listen to music, take long walks and binge watch Karate and Marvel movies. Holidays were special to her because it brought family together. Thanksgiving was very special because she would look forward to cooking all her favorite dishes like baked macaroni and cheese, collard greens, candied yams, cabbage, and apple pie with love. Glynis’ spirit was vibrant and the true essence of love! If you were having a bad day, she would always be available to provide a listening ear while interjecting a little humor to remind you that everything will be okay. She would say, “We’re weebles wobble, we don’t fall down.” Then she would say, “But you already know that. Just sending my love and strength to you.” Glynis was beauty in its simplest form and is now shining bright with the Lord. She will forever be our special angel who blessed our lives in the roles of daughter, mother, grandmother, wife, sister, auntie and friend.
Her father Herman Boyce preceded her in death. She leaves to cherish her memory, husband Vincent Pearl, sons Aaron Green and Joseph Mitchell, grandson Josiah Mitchell, siblings Barbara Brimmage, Karen Singleton, Virginia Boyce, Cedric Boyce, Donald Boyce and Olympia Boyce. Along with a host of nieces, nephews, brother-in-law, aunts, uncles, cousins, a loving family and friends.

Family was very important to her. She would move mountains to support her son's and grandson anyway she could.

Sissy, I remember growing up you was always the studious one. You were always comfort at home with something to read. So much so that mom use to have to force you to go outside. Being forced to go outside may have seemed like punishment to you, but in my eyes you were receiving a treat. I remember when you were attending Baruch College and had to do a paper. You asked me for suggestions on a topic. Being the jokester I convinced you to do your paper on male pregnancy. So believing in your big sister, you went to your school library and asked for material on male pregnancy. You was sooooo mad at me, but little sister to my defense, although I thought it was funny at the time, I also believed it was a good topic because I saw it mentioned somewhere, I just could not remember where. Needless to say if you were to google male pregnancy today, you would have found all the material you needed to complete your paper. So Sissy... you and I were just ahead of our time. Just like you leaving this earth...once again ahead of your time. Love You!

Glynis was such a fun-loving person. We met in 1998 at Amerigroup and were friends from the start. We and a couple of other ladies hung out together for years and genuinely enjoyed each others company. I can hear Glynis laughing now and what a contagious laugh it was. Unfortunately, we lost touch over the years and we last spoke briefly a few years back. I know she will be GREATLY missed. My prayers are with her sons and family. God Bless!
