Pauline was a kind, caring and fun-loving lady whom we met through our friendship with her daughter, Mary many years ago.We saw how she cherished her husband and family and welcomed so beautifully all who walked into her life. She is happy in the Lord now.

We were deeply saddened to learn of Pauline's passing and extend heartfelt sympathies to the entire extended family. Pauline was one of the kindest, thoughtful and most gracious persons we've ever met and it was a privilege to spend time with her whenever we could over the years. Here's hoping that great memories of Pauline will help fill the void left by her absence.
