Pearl was born on May 24, 1929 to William and Maymie (Krogman) Hacker. Pearl grew up in New Ulm and was united in marriage on Feb. 7, 1948 to Dennis W. Roiger.

Pearl was first a wife, mother and homemaker. She was an extraordinary, extremely talented women and a bit mischievous. She was an unbelievable cook, loved to sew and quilt, oil paint, ceramics, wood carve, read and make things for her family and friends. There was nothing she couldn’t do and spoiled us all. She did furniture reupholstery from her home for 30 years, later working at Oak Hills in the kitchen, Panasote Co., and finally worked at the Catholic Pastoral Center as Bishop Lucker’s personal caretaker and cook.

Pearl will be sadly missed by her family including her family of 17 years at Oak Hills Living Center, friends or anyone else that was lucky enough to cross paths with her.
