Mrs. Schaberg was a graduate of Lindenwood College where she excelled in piano, even giving concerts on KMOX radio. She taught at Powell Terrace and Benton elementary schools.
She was an active member of St Charles Presbyterian Church where she served as Deacon, Elder and Sunday School teacher and was a member of a women’s study group. She also enjoyed PEO, Reading Club, and various bridge groups with her lifelong friends.
Pearl and Gene enjoyed many years of tours and cruises, including Europe, the Mediterranean, Africa, South America, the Pacific Islands, Canada and all fifty states.
Those who were privileged to know Pearl will remember her kindness, laughter, gag gifts, love of a good book and interest in current events. She was a lifelong learner and was writing poetry in her 100th year.
The family would like to thank all those wonderful people who continued to call on her and enrich her life. They especially wish to thank Kim Hunt for her loving care and Lisa Browne, her faithful church visitor.
Pearl’s wish was for no memorial service so there will be a private graveside service for family members.
Memorial contributions can be made to St. Charles Presbyterian Church in care of Baue Funeral Home, 620 Jefferson Street St Charles, Mo 63301
