Pauline was a dedicated woman working hard over the years raising her children, working at Buies grocery store and proudly caring for others throughout her nursing career. Pauline treasured her family home. She kept busy tending to her yard and gardens while making sure “her” deer in the yard were always well fed.  
Pauline was the heart of her family. Decades of family celebrations took place in her home where the grandkids preformed skits and dances, hours were spent shooting pool and throwing darts, the paper plate number game became tradition and Pauline entertained everyone with her yodeling. Pauline had a love for fishing and spent many hours on Lake Wolsey catching her limit to make a fish feast for her and her beloved husband Bill. She treasured every moment she spent with family and friends at her favourite spots, the trailer at Macs camp and sugar bush in Meldrum with the Van Every clan. When you stopped by for a visit you can guarantee you wouldn’t be leaving the house without a bottle of maple syrup in hand.
