Armella Joan Pager (nee Baldauff) died peacefully at Eagle Crest Memory Care on May 4, 2019.  Prior to the last few years, she resided in Mequon, WI for over 40 years.  She was the youngest of seven children of the late Edward and Mary Baldauff from Pittsburgh, PA.  She attended the University of Pittsburgh obtaining her B.S. and became a R.N.  She enlisted in the Navy, but did not serve since WWII ended.  She worked in a variety of settings including nursing homes, private duty and supervising student nurses in hospital clinicals.  She was an avid reader.  She was a creative seamstress who could look at something and make it without a pattern.  Her favorite thing to do was to spend time with her family. She was preceded in death by her husband, John;  brothers (Edward and Marinus);  sisters (Sylvilla, Hyacinth, Esther, and twin, Imelda. She is survived by her children:  Pamela Pager Green (Glenn), La Crosse; Eileen Pager Williams, Kenosha; and Richard Pager, Milwaukee and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be scheduled in Mequon at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to the Alzheimers Association or the Milwaukee Rescue Mission.

    So sorry to hear of Joan’s passing but am glad that she does not have to suffer with Alzheimer’s any more! My sister Ann is also a resident at Eagle Crest so saw Joan frequently.
