Pearl F. (Slaght) Nevin

Pearl F. (Slaght) Nevin, 92, passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, at Autumn Winds of Oakland.

Pearl was born on Sept. 14, 1926, in Lancaster, to John and Leona Slaght.

She spent most of her life in various Wisconsin cities until moving to Fort Atkinson for 30 years. Pearl was employed at Melster’s for 30-plus years.

Among the things she enjoyed were baking, singing in a choir, keeping company with her family and friends, kissing babies, and just being our loving Pearl.

Pearl was genuinely gracious and helped out whenever needed. She loved Jesus and her heart was bigger than the world.

Pearl is survived by her sisters, Lucille Olson of Janesville, Shirley (Roger) Eck of Tomah, Beverly Dahl of Cottage Grove, Karen (Vern) Lemon of Tennessee and Darlene (Ernie) Koehler of Racine; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and siblings, Betty, Jerry, Loren, Sharon, Terry and Carol.

The memorial will take place on June 23, starting at 1 p.m. at the Oakland Seventh Day Adventist Church on Advent Road.

From Cambridge, take U.S. Highway 12 East, turn right onto County Highway A, cross County Highway C and, less than a mile down the road, turn right onto Advent Road and follow it around the curves to the church on the left.

Nitardy Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
