Pearl Erdman was born in Milwaukee, Wis., on January 23, 1923, to August and Minnie Krueger. She accepted the Lord Jesus as her Savior in October of 1933 and went home to be with her Savior on August 9, 2019.
  She is survived by her son, Gary Erdman and his wife, Sue of Waukesha, Wis.; a grandson, Richard Corey; two great-grandchildren; and a grand-dog, Carlie-Mae. Preceding Pearl in death were her husband, Ken; a daughter, Sandra Corey; and sisters: Kathryn Griesell, Lyda Jane Krueger and Carol Singer.
    Before her marriage, Pearl worked for 13 years for Wisconsin Telephone Co. in Milwaukee. After moving to Menominee, Mich., she worked for 16 years as church secretary for Faith Baptist Church.
    Pearl was committed in every area of her life:  in love to Ken and her family; to her God and Savior, Jesus Christ; and to her church. She always felt that whatever she undertook to do would be done with all her heart, soul and might. She was always thankful that she did not have to work away from home when her children were small, even though that may have meant they went without the fineries of life. They always had all that they needed. She was a wonderful mother.
    She served her Lord in many quiet ways as God gifted her. She taught Sunday School, worked in children’s clubs, as youth leader, sang in choirs, played organ and piano many years when needed, sang in a vocal group, was a deaconess and active in prayer ministry. She always sought to be an encourager. Pearl loved music, painting, gardening, crafting, cooking, reading and traveling. She had a great sense of humor and wit. She loved the Word of God and sought to read it, study it and live it every day.
    Her greatest achievement or accomplishment that will make her most happy is to hear her Lord say, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord.” She would want us to know today that a life lived for God has no regrets and that we each be prepared to meet God. We will only really know how her quiet life made an eternal impact or difference when we get to Heaven. She was a woman of prayer and the result of her prayers may never be known in this life.
    Funeral services will be held at Faith Church in Peshtigo at 11 a.m. on Thursday, August 15, 2019. Pastor Archer Leupp will officiate. Friends may call at the church from 10 a.m. on Thursday until the time of the service.
    Burial will be in Glenwood Memorial Gardens.
    A special thank you is extended to the staff of Rennes-West for their kindness and gentleness in caring for Pearl. Memorial contributions may be made to Faith Church, Peshtigo.
