Pearl Elizabeth (Kaufman) Kellerman

AGE: 94 • Newark

Pearl Elizabeth (Kaufman) Kellerman, 94, of Somerford House, Newark, DE, formerly of Seminole, FL, died on Wednesday, June 25, 2014. She was born in Scranton, PA, to Isaac Allen Kaufman and Anna Eckert Kaufman. In Scranton she met and married the love of her life, Paul J. Kellerman.

Here in DE she loved going for car rides on sunny days to look at the trees and flowers and then to get ice cream!
