So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I worked with Pearl for many years and it was also many years ago at Sheldahl. Your mom was then in what was called Pete's dept. She always had a great sense of humor. She will be missed. I also worked wih your dad years ago at the Canning co. and he was equally liked. They must have made a good and interesting pair. Not long ago Stu Chester told me he also knew your mom and dad and socialized with them. On behalf of all of we former Sheldahl employees I extend our condolences...

She worked hard and enjoyed life and family and friends - I am so sorry for all of her family for their loss. A million memories and the closeness of your family will bring you strength. May the love and support of your friends and family carry you past this difficult time. love, Judy

I grew up in Faribault and went to Garfield Elementary. When I was second grade a wonderful lady named 'grandma Pearl' would come and volunteer in Bonnie Becker's classroom where I had the pleasure of getting to know Pearl. She was so very kind hearted and we had a connection. She would bring me little trinkets, especially on holidays. She knew I was very proud of my very Irish family and never forgot me on St. Patrick's day bringing me things with four leaf clovers on it. When I was in fifth grade I had Mr. Lozon for a teacher, as well as Mrs. Lozon as a substitute teacher -- I was always sure to have them say hello for me. They were some of my favorite teachers, and Pearl was a great classroom grandma. I am very sorry for the loss of her and I will never forget Grandma Pearl!

We met Pearl through Harold and Nancy Karow when they lived in Missouri many years ago. We became friends at first sight, Pearl was so easy to be friends with. Such a fun loving lady that we had many laughs with. Some people you meet you can forget just as soon as they leave your sight, but not Pearl she was a friend for life. Pearl had such a great sense of humor and enjoyed all of her family and friends. Such a very special lady and friend to all that had the honor of knowing her. With love to all of her family, George and Helen Young Galena, Mo.
