Obituary Condolences

BENNINGTON -- Hanson-Walbridge Funeral Home in Bennington was filled Wednesday morning, Dec. 1, 2004, for the funeral services for Pauline M. Barber Stroffoleno.

The Rev. Norma Drosky of the First Baptist Church in Bennington conducted the service. Pauline’s grandchildren began the service by individually walking to the casket and placing a sun flower by Mrs. Stroffoleno’s casket to the song “You Are My Sunshine.”

The congregation listened to the hymns “On a Hill Far Away (Old Rugged Cross),” “Amazing Grace,” “On Eagles’ Wings” and “In the Garden.” Scripture readings were offered by the Rev. Drosky. Personally written poems were read by many of Pauline’s family and reflections were given by many family and friends.

Committal services followed in the family lot in Parklawn Cemetery, where the Rev. Drosky offered burial rites and committal prayers. The song “Silver Haired Mother” was sung by Fred Lance while he played his guitar and those in attendance listened to the hymn “How Great Thou Art.” Sunflowers were then placed on top of the casket by all of Pauline’s children. The procession leading to the cemetery passed by Pauline’s homes on North Branch Street and County Street. Serving as bearers were Pauline’s sons, Arthur, Richard, Willard and David Barber; and grandsons, Jonathan Prouty, Chad Prentiss and Todd Stratton. Honorary bearers were Casey Burgess, Pam Baker, Tina Mulvey, Thomas Oldham and Francis Saunders.

A time of fellowship and refreshments was held at the home of Pauline’s son, David, following the committal services.

Pauline M. Barber Stroffoleno of County Street died Saturday evening, Nov. 27, 2004, at her home surrounded by her family.

Arrangements were under the care of Hanson-Walbridge Funeral, 213 West Main St., Bennington.
