Born in Bristol, NB, Pauline attended the Provincial Normal School and became a teacher. Widowed in 1954 at the age of 34 with four small children, Pauline returned to teaching and taught many years at St. Dunstan’s School. When she retired, she volunteered many more years at the South Devon School library. Pauline was very active throughout her life. She was an accomplished seamstress. She loved walking – she walked everywhere! She enjoyed playing bridge with her friends. She was a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels. She curled for many years, and played golf and cross-country skied into her nineties.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Shannex and Hospice House Fredericton for their care and compassion. Per Pauline’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. For those who wish, memorials may be made to Hospice House Fredericton or the charity of the donor’s choice.
