Pearl Gladness Kaiser

Pearl Kaiser passed away peacefully at home the morning of Chrsitmas Eve.

Pearl was born in Edenwood, Sask., on June 4, 1929. Pearl was the youngest of five siblings, all predeceased; Aaron Sauer (Helen); Viola Sauer (Harold); Erna Lanz (Frank); Mary Raincock (Bill); Sam Sauer (Eunice).

The family lived on a farm complete with piglets. Later the family moved to Kelowna, B.C.

Pearl married Tony Kaiser in 1950. They moved to Kamloops in 1956, and Barriere in April 1959 when Tony got hired with the Department of Highways until his retirement in 1988. Pearl and Tony were in Barriere for 50 years.

Pearl and Tony raised three children, Bruce (Donna); Barb Kaiser; and Karen Gendron (Sylvano) deceased. They have five granddaughters, Alison Parks; Crystal Kaiser (Harrison); Brooke ‘Evie’ Fodin (Mike); Holly and Taryn Gendron, and three great grandchildren, Azah, Meghan and Luke Parks.

Life was full of family and friends. Hunting, fishing, gardening, canning, cooking, cleaning and sewing. Pearl and Tony enjoyed travelling, their favourite spot was Hawaii. Pearl loved to attend church and was the main thrust in starting the Barriere Pentecostal Church. Bethany Baptist was her home for many years as well.

Pearl always had time for a cup of tea and a homemade cookie, and was known for her delicious cabbage rolls, donuts and buns.

Pearl loved a good laugh and often made comments that made others join in heartily.

Pearl, our dear mom, grandma, and great-grandma passes a legacy of faith in Jesus. To have determination in the middle of crisis and the ability to laugh and enjoy the little things in life.

Pearl had Advanced Dementia for many years, and in 2008 moved to Kamloops to live with family.

A warm invitation is extended to attend a celebration of Pearl’s life on May 30, Saturday, at the Barriere Penecostal Church, 818 Annesty Road, 250-672-0111, Pastor Lance Naylor officiating.
