She also enjoyed plants and socializing with others, especially calling her family members on the telephone.

Pauline was preceded in death by her husband, her father, and her grandparents. 


At this time, there will be no services. A private inurnment will be held at Highland Memory Gardens in Madison.

Lois and Martin, So sorry to hear of your loss. It was a pleasure to get to know Pauline and to see her thirst for the Bible. My thoughts and prayers are with you two.

I don't really know how to express to you both how sad I am at your loss. She made friends everywhere she went and certainly left her mark on all who knew her. She was a very special lady who had lots of love to give. She had a big heart, very generous and hospitable, kind, and so very loving. I will miss her so very much. She loved the scriptures, animals, plants, coffee, donuts, music, learning, people, but most of all, she loved life. I will cherish all my memories and times spent with her. She was a good teacher, too. She taught me many lessons, including how to see life through different eyes, the value of patience, and how to enjoy the small things in life. One of the last things we talked about was the resurrection hope that is promised in the Bible, and how joyful it will be to see each other when we are whole and healthy. No more sickness, pain, and death.

She is always smiling. Maybe its because of a Bible based hope of the Resurrection. May we be that Thankful.
