Obituary for Inez L. Pearson
Inez Louise Pearson of Siren, WI passed away on January 14, 2015.

Inez was born at home on February 12, 1930 to Henry and Lida (McCarty) Mangelsen. She was raised in the Coomer and Hertel area. She graduated from Shell Lake High School in 1947.

Inez met her future husband, Arvid Pearson, April 16, 1949 at Indian Creek Dance Hall. They were married October 17, 1950. To this union 6 children were born.

Inez was a hard worker and enjoyed every job she had. When she was dating Arvid, she worked at the Frederic Bakery. After they got married, they moved to Texas for a short time. When they returned to Wisconsin, they bought a dairy farm south of Lewis. She enjoyed farming and being able to raise her family and be a stay-at-home mom. In the early 60's she started to work outside the home having numerous jobs such as the Woolen Mill, Duncan Yo-Yo, then at the Frederic Hospital as a secretary. She worked there until Arvid started up his own business and she had to stop working at the hospital to help with the farm. She drove school bus for awhile in the spring for Arvid. She enjoyed that so much that she even picked up a summer school route. After the bus driving job, she started working at Stokely Van Camp in Quality Control. After Stokely's closed down, she got bored and started working at the Inter-county Leader as a proofreader until she retired in 1992.

In 1979 she and Arvid sold the farm south of Lewis and built a house in Lewis where they lived until 2004. They sold the home in Lewis and moved to Siren.

She and Arvid loved to travel and went on many trips across the U.S. They invited her sister, Marlene and her husband, Dick one year which started an annual adventure.

She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as she would say "to pieces". She loved making cookies which in turn she earned the name "Cookie Grandma" and the great-grandchildren called her place the "Cookie House".

She leaves to mourn her husband, Arvid; 3 sons, James (Verlene) Pearson, Robert (Debbie) Pearson, Lonny (Terri) Pearson; 6 grandchildren, Jessie Pearson, Jodi (Andrew) Vollmuth, Jason (Marceleen) Pearson, Melissa (Lance) Horozewski, Jessica (Zeb) McInerny, Savanna Pearson; 10 great-grandchildren; 4 sisters, Marlene Swearingen, Nina (Lawrence) Hines, Donna (Jerry) Hines, Lida Nordquist; 3 brothers, Nick (Esther) Mangelsen, Henry Jr. (Karen) Mangelsen, Gerald (Pauline) Mangelsen; 12 nieces and 12 nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Jess; 2 infant brothers, Donald Wayne and Kenneth Dale; 3 infant children, Donald, Patti and Stan Lee; 4 brothers-in-law, Richard Swearingen, Donald Nordquist, Roy Pearson, Arnold Thompson; 2 sisters-in-law, Paula Pearson, Eileen Thompson; niece, Suzie; nephews, Dennis and Gary.
