One of my favorite memories of your mom was the doll clothes she made for me one Christmas (perhaps about 1960). I had a baby doll that I just loved and she gave me a coat box (a big box!) full of doll clothes she had made - there were dresses, coats with bonnets, pajamas, pants, shirts - it was amazing. I'm sure the materials were from clothes that she was making for you. I've still got all the clothes and the doll. The best gift ever!

Our sympathy to the family.

Our family has wonderful memories of Pauline. She was always so sweet and kind to us. And she was very hospitable. There were some very fun Easter Sunday get-togethers at the farm that bring back such warm memories. We still have memories of her at church. Good days. She has been missed since our move away but now will be missed by all that knew and loved her. Heaven has her now. And that is a comfort!
