Aunt Pauline was one of my most admired women in my life. She welcomed me into her family and made me feel as if I was family from the moment that I first met her, I married into the family. I always felt at home with her, she was like a mother to me and often said I was like one of her daughters, she made me feel loved. She always had a smile on her face and was always ready to play a game of set back or a game of train or put a puzzle together. We were blessed to have shared winters with her and her husband, Jim, in their home in Fort Myers and them spending summers with us and later living a mile or so from them and spending so much time with them making so many good memories. Pauline will be missed by all that knew her. She was loved by many, she was one in a million and she will remain in mine and Garry's hearts forever.
Doris, Karen, Jimmy and family you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless and Comfort each and every one of you.

I admired Miss Pauline for her youthfulness while getting to know her in her visits to West Virginia each summer. We will miss her in our church there. Her family was blessed to have her for so many years. Love to all! Helen Woolridge
