Pearl A. Wallner

February 7, 1943 — March 26, 2024


Pearl Ann Wallner, 81, peacefully left her family on Tuesday, March 26th, 2024.  Pearl was born on February 7th, 1943 to Joseph and Mary (Niziolek) Salzman as one of their thirteen children.  Pearl was raised on the family farm in central Wisconsin and loved tending to and raising the family horses.


Pearl raised her family of five children in Wausau.  She was a loving and hard working mother who strove to give her children everything they needed.  Pearl loved to cook and bake and was legendary not only for her ability to feed an army of hungry kids but also her skill in making some of the best Christmas cookies.  She had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to enjoy the seasons and holidays.  Spring would enter with her April's fools pranks, summer was spent gardening and grilling, fall would bring harvesting and Halloween treats and decorations, and enormous Thanksgiving menus, and winter would bring Christmas presents, cookies and Santas everywhere.  


In her later years, Pearl discovered that she was a painter, a poet and a natural at family card games.  She made it her mission to share her voice, experiences, and tried to communicate, through her work, to those who had suffered abuse in their lives that they were not alone.  She would often write or paint something and give it away to a friend or even an acquaintance in the hopes of bringing them a smile and peace.  


Pearl will forever be loved by her children: Brian Stolzman, John Stolzman, Robert Stolzman, Martin Stolzman and Marie Husnick (nee Wallner).  Her love touched and shaped her grandchildren (Ashley, Paige, Alex, Lauren, Shante and Anya) and they will always live with her in their hearts.  


At Pearl's request, there will be no funeral.  The family will hold a private memorial service and honor her and her love of life, nature, family, laughing and cooking by striving to live their best lives through supporting each other and trying to bring joy and happiness to their communities, as she did.
