PEARL RODERMONDPosted: September 16th, 2014
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Pearl Rodermond who went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital with her family by her side.
Pearl was born April 16, 1925 in Gieten, Holland to Arend and Henrietta Aasman.

Janet in 1955, Ernie in 1957 and Michael in 1961. Then Jim, Pearl and family moved to Leslieville, Alberta in 1965 where she lived until her passing.
Pearl enjoyed having her family home for special occasions, she liked to do traditional cooking and baking mixed in with some Dutch traditions, which we all enjoyed very much. She loved her beautiful yard and enjoyed her flowers, always having fresh flowers on the table. Pearl and Jim enjoyed travelling the world and went on many vacations with friends or family or both. They also enjoyed their snow birding experience to the States for 20 plus years. On August 9th 2014 Pearl and Jim celebrated their 60th Anniversary.
