Pearl was born at her parent’s home May 2, 1923, in Waconia Township, Carver County, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Paul and Clara (Stender) Lenz. She was brought into God’s Kingdom of Grace through the waters of Holy Baptism June 3, 1923, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Norwood Young America, Minnesota with Pastor Abraham officiating. She was confirmed at St. John’s on April 5, 1936, with Pastor Kramer officiating. Her confirmation verse was Genesis 15:1: Fear not, I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward. She attended District 62 country, St. John’s parochial and Central schools. After finishing school Pearl worked at New Germany Produce and the Young America grocery store.
On November 6, 1946, Pearl was united in marriage to Melvin Schrupp at St. John’s with Pastor Kramer officiating. They made their home on the Schrupp family farm in Camden Township, Carver County, Minnesota. After she married Melvin, she worked side-by-side with him on the farm, milking cows, tending fields, raising chickens, and caring for their family.
They were blessed with three children: Charles, Duane, and Lynn. In 1981 they built a home in the country near the farm and lived there until Melvin passed away in 2002. In 2004 she moved to Peace Villa in Norwood Young America then transitioned to assisted living care at the Harbor and finally the Haven.
She enjoyed gardening, playing cards (500), embroidering, and quilting. She made many beautiful quilts for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed spending time with friends and family, especially baking cookies with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Another significant part of Pearl’s life was her lifelong commitment to her church, including attending church services regularly, being an active member of the LWML for many years, helping with many projects at church, quilting with the Ladies Aid, and spending time in Bible study.
Pearl was a humble, caring, and thoughtful woman who was devoted to her faith and her family who she loved deeply and especially treasured the time when the family was all together. She was hard-working, kind, and considerate of others and leaves a wonderful Christian example for her family.
