Pearl Mae (Halvorson) Struck, daughter of Helmer and Selma (Hoff) Halvorson, was born on February 25, 1925 at her home in Kensington, in Douglas County, Minnesota. She was baptized on March 29, 1925 at Nora Lutheran Church and was confirmed on November 5, 1939. Pearl grew up in Nora Township, where she attended and completed district 50 country school and then went on to Kensington High School where she graduated in 1943. She then went to teachers training in Glenwood. She was a teacher in two rural country schools, in Pope and Stevens County. After her husband’s unexpected death, she went to teach in Hancock school, where she retired in 1995.

Pearl was united in marriage on January 2, 1950 to Myron Fred Struck at the parsonage in Morris, MN. They moved to the family farm in Rensville Township. This union was blessed with six wonderful children; Glenn, Gene, Dean, Sheryl, Gayle, and James. In 1980 she moved to Morris, and in 1996 she moved to Rogers, MN to be closer to her children. She moved to Buffalo in 2012 to reside at Parkview Care Center due to health reasons, and resided there until her passing on December 16, 2020.

Pearl was a member of Nora Lutheran Church in Farwell, MN, Faith Lutheran Church in Morris, MN, and currently a member at Word of Peace Lutheran Church in Rogers, MN. She was a Sunday school teacher and Nora 4-H leader. She was also active in Homemakers for many years in Morris.

    It has been many, many years since I had heard anything about Pearl and didn’t realize Tanya K. was her granddaughter! I also worked with Gayle at the nursing home in Morris many, many years ago as well. I remember Pearl from Hancock School and she was THE BEST lady, so kind and thoughtful, always with the best interest of the students on her mind. May she rest in peace and may you find comfort as her family knowing all is well with her soul and she rejoices with loved ones who had gone before her. God Bless.
    Sincerely, Dawn (Mohr) Thiel

    To my long lost family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I am a distant cousin of Myron Fred Struck and sadly came upon Pearl’s obit, while trying to reconnect with the family. Myron’s Dad Fred, was my last known cousin, to my grandmother, Alma (Iwen) Peterson. I would like to get back in touch with you all. Please contact me at the following email.
