Pearl Marie Hickle was born on April 26, 1916 to Sherman and Nellie (Lamb) Hickle at their rural home near Sanger, ND. She attended rural Manley # 2 School through her elementary years. She then attended Bismarck High School and graduated in the spring of 1933. In January of 1934 she began working for the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) where she worked through different program name changes until she married Harold Martin Albers on November 7, 1942 at St. Peter?s Lutheran Church in Hannover. They lived on the family farm north of Hannover, where they had two children, Dawn and Mark. Pearl was an active member of the church through teaching Sunday School, joining the Lutheran Womens Missionary League (LWML), being on the Christian Growth Zone Committee, being delegated to the International Convention in Houston, TX (when the Apollo 11 mission made it to the moon), and serving as the Corresponding Secretary and Parliamentarian for four years each for the North Dakota LWML District. Some of her interests included gardening, painting, and crafts. She devoted much of her time and energy to caring for others and cooking wonderful amounts of food for all her guests. She will always be remembered for her kind heart and gentle soul. Pearl is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Laurie of Hannover; granddaughter, Megan; sister-in-law, Doris Hickle; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins who will miss her dearly. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; daughter, Dawn Marie; brothers, Ralph, William, Harold, and Chester Hickle; and her sisters, Margaret Edelbrock and Ruth Ethrington.
