Pauline was the most amazing, generous, caring, loving person! She had a heart of gold! She would light up every time she spoke of her grandchildren! I loved our mondays spending time shopping, eating, laughing and more! Everywhere we went people knew her! Saks, lord and Taylor and Chico’s! My heart breaks and I’ll miss her so much!!! I’ll forever cherish all my memories with her!!!!!

Pauline (my cousin) is an angel from Heaven ! Not a mean bone in her body, she has ALWAYS reached out to family, friends, strangers in need. Pauline would offer advice, friendship, monetary assistance , whatever it took to ease their hardships. And yes, she did sing at everyone's wedding including mine and how blessed we all were , not only for singing at our weddings but for being able to witness her love for ALL Mankind! Thank you Lord for our 85 years of love for one another & God Rest Her Soul.
Always love and may her children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren enjoy long ,healthy lives !

I have the warmest old memories of Pauline’s beautiful voice ringing out at every Greek wedding and dance I attended so many years ago. May she Rest In Peace. Judy Alafoginis Green
