Pauline was a lifelong housekeeper and a wonderful cook known for her donuts and chicken and noodles. She enjoyed going to craft shows with Paula Mae and visiting with everyone.

Pauline was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and a caring neighbor and friend. We will always cherish the special times we had together.
