Sorry to announce the passing of Pearl Geurts. She passed away in her home Sunday morning at the age of 90 in Stagecoach, Nev. Pearl was born July 3, 1919, in South Dakota. She attended school in Roberts County and graduated from Wilmont High School. Pearl moved with her husband James Geurts to San Francisco, where James was employed by Pacific Gas & Electric. They then moved to Stagecoach in 1974 where James and Pearl started a modest ranch. Pearl loved to cook, entertain, work her crossword puzzles, slot machines and fishing.
Pearl Geurts is survived by son James Geurts Jr. of Stagecoach and a sister Gladys of Melrose, Minn. Pearl is preceded in death by her parents Aaron and Birtha Thiele, husband James and son Dr. Robert Geurts; also five brothers and six sisters and many nieces and nephews. My mother was a generous, wonderful, loving lady. She had a beautiful spirit that wouldn’t quit. She wasn’t just my mother, she was my best friend, she was everybody’s friend. She will be missed by all. Pearl now has the key to the pearly gates. Love you and thank you.
