Pearl D. Trapp 1927–2020 Kenyon—Pearl Dora (Heinbuch) Trapp, 93, of Kenyon, passed away surrounded by her loving family, on Sunday, November 29th at her home after a long struggle with Parkinson's Disease. Pearl was born on August 28, 1927, the middle child of eleven, to George and Mary (Risch) Heinbuch in Woodbury Township. On October 18th, 1947, she was united in marriage to Roy Trapp at St. John's Lutheran Church in Woodbury Township. In March of 1948, they moved to a farm southeast of Kenyon where Pearl and Roy farmed and raised their five children: Donald, John, David, Daniel, and Lisa. Pearl worked in partnership with her husband on the farm, but also enjoyed gardening, cooking, baking, crafts, puzzles, and reading. She was a member of the Red Hat Ladies' group, along with the Cherrio Homemakers' Group. After over 50 years in farming, Pearl and Roy retired and moved to Kenyon, where they enjoyed growing over 100 varieties of Hosta plants, feeding and watching the birds, and doing some traveling. Pearl also volunteered her time with Meals on Wheels and at Third World in Kenyon. Along with her strong faith, family was most important for Pearl, and she had a special relationship with each of her grandchildren. They knew that cinnamon rolls were baked every Saturday and that a little bit of "magic" went into her homemade waffles. She was a kind woman who will be deeply missed by her entire family. Pearl is survived by her children, David (Gail) Trapp of West Concord, Daniel (Jone) Trapp of Mantorville, Lisa (Scott) Androli of Kenyon, and daughters-in-law Doreen (Keith) Kelley of Mendota Heights and Cindy Trapp of Owatonna; grandchildren, Dean Trapp, Jason (Kristen)Trapp, Alex Trapp; Zachary and Zoey Trapp; Theodore, Samuel and Reganne Androli; Bryan (Susie Swangstue) Trapp, Tina (Benis) Cubas, Katy (Matthew) Kelley-Rademacher, Kevin (Danielle) Kelley; Kara (Marc) Oien, Megan (Sam) Henschen, Nick (Brandi) Trapp; 15 great-grandchildren; sisters, Margaret Welch, Gertrude Steinbruckner; brother, Herman Heinbuch (Delores), and sister-in-law Alice Heinbuch. She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy; sons Donald Trapp and John Trapp; sisters, Florence Stabenow, Rosemary Doehling, Frida Reichow, Louise Holz and Caroline Doehling; brothers, Robert Heinbuch and Harold Heinbuch.
