Pella Corporation, a leading manufacturer and designer of windows and doors, today announced the passing of Chair Emerita Mary Joan Kuyper Farver, early Monday morning. She was 97 years old and she passed peacefully at her home in Pella, Iowa with her family.

“Joan was an inspiration to all who knew her and she was well-known as Pella Corporation’s ‘First Lady.’ She cared deeply about her family, this Company, and the communities in which we employ people,” said Tim Yaggi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pella Corp.  “Joan sincerely cared about people and often took the time to write personal notes or to visit with team members because she took an active interest in others. She was a quiet leader whose philanthropic contributions have made a lasting impact on the community of Pella, Iowa, and many other communities and causes that will leave a lasting legacy for future generations,” added Tim.

A website honoring her memory can be found at www.joankuyperfarver.com. The more than 7,000 employees of Pella Corporation are honoring Joan with moments of silence, prayers and memorial lapel pins festooned with her favorite flower, a yellow rose.

A public memorial service will be held, Saturday, April 22; details and arrangements continue to be finalized.
