I'm so honored that Aunt Pauline was my Aunt, loved her dearly and she will be missed. My fondest memory was how loved she always made me feel, and always bought me the best make up sets! My deepest sympathies

Terri and Gary Whalen

Memere will be missed.
She was a wonderful lady. She would always have a hug and kiss for you the moment she saw you. She made you feel part of her family.
I remember when she came to the camp in Bingham one weekend, Gary had his motorcycle there. Even though she was 80 years young, she sat on it and made sure we took her picture!
You could tell she loved her family more than anything and they loved her just as much.
Memories and sharing them will hopefully help with your loss.
