Pearl L. Schaberg, 100, of St Charles, died Sunday, May 24, 2020 at Cottages of Lake St. Louis.

Mrs. Schaberg was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Eugene Schaberg, her parents, Vallee and Anna Lammers, and by dear daughter-in-law, Sue Schaberg.  She is survived by her brother and sister-in -law, John and Elnor Lammers of Champaign, IL.

Her greatest joy was in her family, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is survived by children Ann Webbink (Ron), Jim Schaberg, and Tom Schaberg (Julie). Her grandchildren and great grandchildren are: Amy Webbink ( Matt Jones), Greta and Naomi Jones; Bob Webbink (Jennie), Anya and Nora; Emily Weber (Nick) Ellie, Alex and Colin; Caty Beilsmith (Randy), Lydia and Margot; Abby Bichel (Brad), and James; Caroline Pope (Ross), and Andrew Schaberg.

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

    There was no better friend than Pearl. We were friends for many years teaching together at Powell Terrace. She always wanted to learn new things and so hosted. many of the Bible Studids I lead in her apartment. We shared many good times because she did not want to hear bad things…just good thingd. I always left feeling she had lifted my spirits.

    Jim, I saw the obituaries today and I must say I’m very sorry for the loss of your MOTHER, you have my sincere condolences. Your MOTHER from what I read was deeply involved in life and helping others. Your parents certainly brought up a FAMILY of very smart children, that has proven talents to make this world a better place. You all will be rewarded some way, some how. May your roads cross again some time, I’m hoping for this anyway. You’ve been good to me through the years, I’m very sure this was from your upbringing. May your MOTHER RIP. Thank you for your FRIENDSHIP Joel Young

    I extend my sympathies to the whole Schaberg family. I grew up knowing Pearl and later enjoyed being in Reading Club with her. She was a remarkable woman in every way and I especially enjoyed her sense of humor. She was such a dear lifelong friend to my mother-in-law, Helen Fuerhoff Niedner. During Helen’s last weeks, Pearl came by almost every day with a little food surprise or flower. They always had an interesting discussion about what was going on in the world, their friends and their families. Pearl was indeed a treasure and I am glad you had so many years to cherish her.

    Scanning the obits this morning, I saw your mother’s name and knew immediately that was Miss Lammers, my second grade teacher! I thought then that she was the sweetest and most beautiful person in the world. My opinion of her never changed. My deepest sympathy for your loss. Diana Plackmeyer Thomas

    Strangely, I was thinking about Pearl just this week. She was a member of the bridge club made up of Lindenwood friends who met regularly for decades and was perhaps the last surviving member. When I was two or three weeks old, my mom took me in a picnic basket to meet “the girls,” and I saw them regularly from then on until I moved away. I remember Pearl as beautiful, serene, and good humored, one of the Great Ladies who was such an excellent role model and amazing person that I was lucky enough to know.

    Our deepest condolences to the entire family. We knew Pearl best at Parkside Meadow’s when she would stop by the Main Street Market with some words of wisdom and a joke or two. She and Gene were also treasured clients. She will be forever in your hearts and remembered for the beautiful person she was.

    Ann, Your mother was such a delight. I remember her laughter when visiting your house in high school. I taught with her at Benton and she was so much fun. Sending you our prayers and sympathy.

    I remember the sweet and funny stories about Pearl from my mother-in-law, Helen Fuerhoff Niedner. Whether it was about when their children were small, the bridge club they called their “therapy group” or the interesting ladies at the Reading Club, which I later was asked to join. I learned so much about Depression life, after the War in St. Charles, and enduring friendship listening to Pearl’s and Helen’s stories. We were so fortunate to be part of the lives of such strong, kind women and their families. My sympathy to your entire family.

    I want to extend my deepest sympathy to the Schaberg Family. I am sorry to hear of Pearl’s passing but I know that she is in heaven.
    I met Pearl at Windsor Estates where she was a resident and I worked at the front desk. There are residents that are just residents and then there are residents who become your friend and she was my friend. I always loved when she would come to the front desk just to say “Hello” and sit for a cup of tea and chat. She spoke very highly of all of you and loved you all so much.
    She brought much joy to my life and I am grateful to have known her.
    My sympathy to the entire Family.

    candle 6It was a honor to visit with Pearl almost everyday. She was a special person and I know made my life better. Every year she would get me a birthday card and tell me I was her second favorite mailman of all time obviously Gene being number one. You will be missed

    Tom and Jim, I just want to tell you how sorry I am about the loss of your Mom. She was always such a sweet lady each time we talked at St. John and I enjoyed visiting with her. Losing your Mom is not easy, I know! My Mom has been gone for 30 years this year. But as a very wise man recently said, soon all the memories you have made “will bring a smile to your lips before they bring a tear to your eyes”. It takes a while but it will happen. Take care of each other.

    My heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your dear mother, Pearl. I met her some 40 years ago through PEO. When I think of women who have touched my life, Pearl is one of those who immediately comes to mind. She was an inspiration with her grace, humility, courage, & kindness. I’m sure heaven is rejoicing. I’m privileged to have known Pearl and will remember her fondly. Your family will be in my prayers.
