  2. Pearl was a tribute to her faith and a blessing to all who knew her. We will miss that sweet little lady.

  3. My sister Bev and I knew Pearl for many years having lived in Grandin, ND and attended school with her Holznagel children. Happy to say we did have a visit and easy conversation with her just recently on May 31st, and realize now what a special visit that was……she gave us some chocolates as a treat as we said goodbye. Our condolences to her family.

  4. Pearl was my aunt also. Although I haven’t seen her in a few years, I will always remember her kindness and beautiful smile. I know she will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched!

  5. A perfect aunt that left her little nephew with a big red lipstick smudge at each Carlson family reunion. Thank you Lord for the gift of her life.

  6. Blessed me the memory of Pearl. This goes back along time when we met her – we lived in Faith – east of Twin Valley, her daughter Karol and husband Herbert Dahlen lived north of us. My husband Lloyd- now deceased – grew up with Herbert by Borup. Pearl was such a sweet person and fun to visit with. Her daughter Karol had lots of health issues and passed away several years ago already, also Pearl’s grandson Michael Dahlen was killed in a car .. So we saw Pearl many times , Cherish these memories – sad ones and happy ones.
