Pearl B. Terlinden, 94


Pearl B. Terlinden, nee Kibbel, 94, of the town of Wayne, entered eternal life on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015, at Cedar Lake Home, West Bend.

She was born on June 7, 1920, on the family farm in the town of Wayne to the late George and Esther (nee Luecke) Kibbel Jr. On May 28, 1949, she was united in marriage to Arthur Terlinden at Salem Church in the town of Wayne.

Her passion was running the farm alongside her husband, which included milking cows, raising chickens and selling her farm-fresh eggs. She felt blessed that for 94 years she was able to live in the farmhouse that she was born in.

Pearl was very involved in many organizations. She was a leader of the Wayne Crusaders 4-H Club, a member of the More-Ed Club, Wayne Willing Weavers Home Makers Club and a member of the Ladies Aid for many years at Zion Lutheran Church.

She always welcomed family, friends or distant relatives to the farm where she enjoyed visiting and serving them a home cooked meal. The love for her family was always so dear to her heart and her memory will be forever with them.

She is survived by her two children, Dennis (Debby) Terlinden and Darlene Krebs, both of the town of Wayne; six grandchildren, Tim (Tracy) Herman, Keith (Bonnie) Herman, Kristin (Tony) Cappozzo, Ryan (Missy) Herman, Tim Krebs and Tricia (Jim) Wichtoski; 13 great-grandchildren, Teagan and Tierney Herman, Kyra, Brady and Alyce Herman, Brandon Susen, Kaeden and Alec Cappozzo, Max, Sam and Ella Herman, and Jace and Cade Wichtoski; sister-in-law, Leona Westphal; two brothers-in-law, Elmer Terlinden and Harold Terlinden; and other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband of 60 years Arthur Terlinden; son-inlaw, Edwards Krebs; brother-in-law, Al Terlinden; and sister-in-law, Arlene Stark.

A funeral service in remembrance of Pearl will be held on Wednesday, March 4, at 3 p.m. at Zion Ev. Lutheran Church in the town of Wayne. The Rev. Steven Bode will officiate and burial will follow in Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery. Visitation will be at the church on Wednesday from 1 p.m. until the time of service.
