Posted in Preston Obituaries



Pearl F. Yaste of Preston, Minn., died on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2015, at the Gunderson Harmony Care Center, at the age of 93.

Pearl Flossie Schaefer was born on December 25, 1921, in Cresco, Iowa, to Jacob and Edith (Young) Schaefer. Born on Christmas Day, her siblings thought Santa had brought them a kitten, only to find out they had a new baby sister. Her mother made sure every Christmas she had her very own birthday cake.

She grew up in the Carimona/Preston area and attended country school at Pleasant Dale (Watson Creek) and Carimona schools. Her family lived for a time in the living quarters of the Forestville Store, which is where she first met her future husband, Wyman E. Yaste. Pearl and Wyman were married on June 28, 1941, and they moved to Preston in 1947. She enjoyed her many flower beds in the summer and had a plant in every window in her home. She won many ribbons at the county fair for her flower arrangements. She enjoyed knitting and doing the genealogy of the Yaste family tree. She also wrote poems and short stories and had stories published in the Rochester Post Bulletin. Pearl did daycare in her home for fifteen years and worked as a clerk at Rindels Fashion Shop for nine years, retiring in 1983. She never turned down a chance to babysit for her grandchildren and had a special touch soothing fussy babies. She was a member of the Preston United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women’s Group. She had been an active member of Friends of Forestville.

Pearl is survived by four daughters: Linda (Darrell) Nierenhausen of Stewartville, and Kay (Don) Brockway, Wendy Yaste and Susan (Steve) Mandelko all of Preston; four grandchildren: Kathy (Scott) Goergen, Shawn (Judith) Brockway, Jamie (Bobbi) Brockway and Nathan (Cassie) Mandelko; two step-grandchildren: Nick and Mitch Nierenhausen; six great-grandchildren, Ryan Himli, Nick and Dustin Riste, Samantha Brockway, Braelin and Preslie Brockway and Jada and Jacob Mandelko; one step-great-granddaughter, Maddison Morton; five great-great-grandchildren, Kaeden, Ariana, Whitney, Owen and Sophie; one sister-in-law, Phyllis (Dell) Schaefer; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Wyman; an infant daughter, Lori Sue; grandson, Justin Mandelko; three brothers: Jacob, John “Jack” and Dell Schaefer; and three sisters: Ida Wilbright, Nona Schultz and Mona Holets.
