Pearl Elsie Kroening (born Newman) was born 13 September 1950 in the Ponoka Hospital. Her parents Edwin and Alice (born Anderson) Newman lived on a farm near Reo School, west of Ponoka.
In 1956 the family left the farm and moved to the town of Ponoka. Pearl went to the Red Brick School for her first years. She enrolled in a Hostess Course at NAIT but ultimately went to her position as a waitress at the Royal Hotel, until she later went to work at the Saan Store and Rimoka.
In 1970, Pearl married Ray Neddo and they had their son Cory. Sadly, the family parted ways and Pearl and Cory moved back to Ponoka. In 1977, Pearl married Gordon Kroening and they lived on his parents farmstead west of Ponoka in the Elkhorn District. Eventually they moved back to town and Pearl continued to work, and Gordon worked on the oil rigs until they retired. Pearl loved old country music and had many records and CDs in her collection. In her retirement Pearl enjoyed reading, crafting and knitting. She especially enjoyed knitting hats for the babies in the hospital.
Pearl passed away Tuesday, 10 May at the Ponoka General Hospital after a brief illness. She is survived by her son Cory Neddo, his wife Virginia and granddaughter Katelynn Neddo, her sister Adena Bauer (Cameron), nieces Liz Anhorn (Eric) and great-nieces Rebecca (Josh) Ulmer and Stephanie Anhorn, niece Patricia Basile (Vittorio), great-niece Victoria and great-nephew Daniel. She is also survived by Gordon’s children, Wade Kroening (Darcy), and Corey Kroening, along with other cousins and members of the Newman, Anderson and Kroening families. She was predeceased by her husband Gordon earlier this year, father Ed Newman, mother Alice Newman, Gordon’s parents Ernie and Pearl Kroening, her special Aunt Helga Newman, and Gordon’s daughter Lonnie Kroening.
