Woodland Hills Funeral Home

   Pearl Thelma Gens passed away at Sanford Hospital in Bemidji on Sunday, August 4, 2019. She was 89 years of age. Pearl had been residing at Lakewood Care Center in Baudette, MN since August of 2017.  
   Pearl was born on September 1, 1929 to Harold and Marie (Jensen) Green of Emmetsburg Iowa.  They later moved to Mankato, MN where Pearl attended school until the 11th grade. During her early years she worked at Mankato Hospital.  She married Vern L. Gens on May 19th, 1948. They lived in Eagle Lake for the first part of their married life and moved to Mankato where they continued to live until the spring of 2017 when they moved to Baudette.  Two children were born to that union; a son, David Lorin and a daughter, Gloria Marie. When the children were born she did daycare in the home and spent most of her years being a homemaker, a great cook and a meticulous housekeeper. Her one hobby that she loved was playing Bingo once a week and she was even known to be one of the most frequent winners of Bingo while living at the Care Center.
   Pearl was a member of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Mankato where she and her husband were charter members. She continued her interest in church all throughout her life.
   Pearl is survived by her son, David (Mary Lee) of Baudette, and her daughter, Gloria (Ken) Hed of Mankato. She also has one living brother, Donald Green (Bruce Hay) of San Diego, CA, along with many brother and sister in-laws and numerous nieces and nephews.  She had eight grandchildren: Cherie (Andy) Crass, Kevin Hed, Edward (Jamie Lynn) Gens, Peter Gens, Amy Lee Gens, Matthew (Jamie Elaine) Gens, Lisa (Scott) Kochniarczyk and Aaron (Kellie) Gens. Great grandchildren: Amanda Pearl Crass, Alese Lee and Kenzie Gens and Reid Schrom, Harlow Joon Gens, Kaylee and Marley Pearl Kochniarczyk and Connor David Gens.
   She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Vern Gens, sister: Leona Bothke, brothers: Robert and Curtis Green, and many brothers and sisters in laws.
   Pearl was known for her orderly life and her incredible sense of humor. You knew she was tickled when her eyes started to sparkle and her smile filled the room. She was greatly loved by her family and will be missed by all.
   Funeral services will be held Friday, August 9th at 11:00 a.m. at Christ the King Lutheran Church of Mankato.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church.  Pastors David and Mary Lee Gens presiding. Interment will be at Woodland Hills in Mankato. Woodland Hills Funeral Home of Mankato is assisting the family with arrangements.
