Our deepest goes out sympathy to Pernella's family. She left a fantastic legacy with the families that represent her life of giving and caring. We will miss her!
Pernella and Halvor were our neighbors on the farm. My mom(charlotte) and her were friends and a near neighbor. We always had fun times at her home when she entertained. We belong to the same church and they were in the same Ladies Aid. Pernella will be miss by everyone and her baking. Julie Tudahl
Our thoughts are with your family.
Going to miss this sweet lady! Thinking of you all
When our families joined via marriage (her granddaughter Amy to our son, Chris) Pernella was most welcoming and stayed that way as long as she lived. She will be missed by more than immediate family as Melba and I can attest!
