Recently we learned of the passing of two supporters of the Edgewater Historical Society.
Pearl Plesener grew up in the Lakewood Balmoral area on the 5300 block of Magnolia and later lived on the 5200 block of Lakewood. She was a founding member of the EHS and generously donated some early pictures from her childhood including her attendance record for Sunday School on a Church of the Atonement postcard. She and her brother George were fans of the Radio Players and attended many performances at the EHS Museum. She is survived by her brother George. The funeral was held at Immanuel Lutheran Church.
Theodosia C. Duskey
Theodosia C Duskey, mother of Kathy Gemperle passed away after a long hospitalization. She grew up in Uptown and attended St. Thomas of Canterbury School and Immaculata High School. After retirement in Arizona she returned to the Admiral on Foster and became involved in EHS. She was a volunteer for two Home Tours and enjoyed seeing exhibits at the museum and the Radio Players. She was with us at the kick off of the fundraising effort to rehab the museum back in 1996. and marveled at all the activities at EHS. She is survived by Kathy, John Duskey, Mary Duskey (Joey) Fort and James Duskey (Debbie), four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. The funeral was held at St. Gertrude Church and the choir that she was a member of sang for the service.
