Pauline Paulin, 85, passed away unexpectedly on November 4, 2020 in Rosenberg, TX. She is survived by her sisters Janie Alvarado, Ruth Sanchez, Margaret Prieto, and Gloria Salazar; brother Jesse Miranda; daughter Bertha “Birdie” Rodriguez; grandchildren Robert Rodriguez and his wife Faith, and Bianca Rodriguez; great-grandchildren Izzy, Emily, and Lilly; many beloved cousins, neighbors, friends, and her beloved Grand cat “Charlie”.

Born on September 17, 1935 in Waelder, TX, one of twelve children, Pauline dedicated her life to her family and her community. Daughter of a migrant farm worker, she spent much of her childhood traveling across the country working in fields and orchards to help support her family, where she learned the value of hard work, and importance of sacrifice and generosity. She developed an early passion for music and singing mariachis with her father.

Pauline raised her family in Northeast Houston. She worked for Western Electronics for 17 years, and later built a career with the Harris County Department of Education, where she retired in 1997.

Led by her faith, Pauline prioritized giving, organizing clothing drives for an annual trip to South Texas, on her pilgrimage to the Basilica of San Juan, and always found creative ways to give of her often limited means.

Most significantly, Pauline was a treasured friend. She never met a stranger, and her legacy is in the countless lives that she touched. She will be greatly missed.

My tia and madrina was so dear to me, she was a precious gem. The most loving, kind and generous woman I’ve known. Not to mention her beauty. To Birdie, Robert, Bianca and her great grandchildren. She loved you more than you will ever know. She also loved John Rodriguez and Aura very much. She was very proud of all of you. My tia was the only one who would call me Ed-mérald, that is if she was speaking in English, I guess since my dad’s name was Edward and my family calls me Emerald it only made sense to put the Ed in my name. That was funny. Pauline was my mom’s best friend and my mom, Janie Miranda Alvarado misses her so much as they used to talk several times a day. Love you tia and madrina, until we meet again.
