Pauline loved her family dearly. She was their best supporter and was so incredibly proud of everyone. She was a talented knitter and made many beautiful creations. Her love of animals is something that she passed down to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Pauline loved to have a good time, and made special memories through the many adventures of her incredible life.
