Reine Marie Pearman of Dallas, Texas, formerly of Nashville, Tennessee, passed away peacefully on November 23rd, 2021. She was born on May 28th, 1934 in Alexandria, Egypt to Nicholas Charitoe and Alice Seyad.
After graduating from the Catholica German Girls School in Alexandria, she became a flight attendant for Middle East Airlines.

Throughout, Reine continued her career in the travel industry and she, Otto and daughter Arianne, traveled the world for both pleasure and business.
