Pauline Jean Moses (Samuel) passed away peacefully at a friend's home in Anchorage, Alaska, on July 8, 2017, at the age of 58. Pauline is survived by her husband, Paul; her children Clayton, Paul, Jesse, Roy Charles, Emma and Sarah; and her siblings, Molly Chythlook, John Samuel and Ben Samuel. She is preceded in death by her parents, Emma Samuel and Willie Samuel; and her siblings, Peter Samuel, Gusty Samuel, Daniel Samuel, Natalia Isadore and Alice Samuel.
Pauline was born on Nov. 26, 1958, in Aleknagik, Alaska. She graduated from Dillingham High School. She started a family with Paul Moses in 1980. Over 12 years the couple welcomed six children into their home, and they all remember her as a caring mom who sacrificed much to raise them properly. After living awhile in Platinum, Alaska, she attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and became the village health-aid. Later, Pauline moved on to work as a health-aid part time, filling in at different villages when needed.
Pauline will be missed and remembered as a caring mom, sister, grandmother and friend to many. She enjoyed spending time with her large family. She always seemed to know exactly how distant relatives were related, and treated them as close family. Many times she welcomed distant and close relatives to live in her home. She helped many get back on their feet, and deal with hardships such as addiction. Pauline loved to travel, many times to visit someone sick in the hospital, or to take her grandchildren home to rural Alaska. She always took time to call people and make sure they were doing well.
Pauline enjoyed making crafts. She made traditional native clothing, jewelry and grass baskets for her large family. She also sold crafts at Saturday markets and festivals like Fur Rendezvous. Pauline enjoyed going to markets because it was a time to visit people and catch up on family news.
A small viewing ceremony for family and close friends will be on Aug. 3, 2017, at 7 p.m. The funeral is scheduled for Aug. 4, 2017, at Dillingham Seventh Day Adventist Church. A burial will follow at the Aleknagik Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.
After the burial, there will be a reception/potluck. The location will be announced at the ceremony.
All are welcome to attend, mourn and celebrate. In lieu of flowers, please deposit donations to Alaska USA checking acct. #1519780; or 1st National Bank acct. #1921 4220. The family would like to thank everyone who will attend and those who helped to ease the pain of this hardship: Teresa Tiesler, Evergreen Memorial Chapel (Doug McKown) and Alaska Airlines (Mike Trulin, Frank Martin, Cole Nance and Anna Marie Nelson).
