Obituary for Pirkko Pelto

Mrs. Pirkko Pelto
1922-2017
Born in Pietarsaari, Finland in 1922, she was married in 1944 to Calvin K. Pelto until his death in 2009.
Calvin came to the United States in 1947 and in 1949, Pirkko bravely made the trip to New York with their daughter .
They settled in Baltimore, MD, and in 1960, had a son. After Calvin’s retirement from the Social Security Administration, they became snowbirds, eventually retiring in Lantana, Fl. Both were active in American and Finnish organizations. Pirkko volunteered at the Finnish American Rest Home and eventually became a resident until her passing.
She is survived by her daughter, Dr. Tarja Geis and her son, Don J. Pelto, Esq., grandsons, Jeffrey Geis and Steven Geis and grandchildren, Elli, Natalie and Nathan Geis.
She was a loving and caring person very talented in art, gardening, sewing and dancing.
Now she will continue to be a guardian angel to her family and hopefully waltzing in heaven with her beloved husband Calvin (Kauko).
Memorial services will be on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the All County Funeral Home, Lake Worth, Florida.
In lieu of flowers, kindly consider making a donation to the Finnish American Rest Home (Village) in Lantana, Florida.
