Freida Pauline Fickenworth went to be with Our Lord and Savior on February 1, 2013, after a short battle with cancer. She was born on May 17, 1943 in Erie, daughter of the late Guy and Florence Marie Magee. Pauline graduated from Academy High School in 1960. Pauline and her husband Robert married in June 1961. She loved spending time with her family and doing things for them. Pauline loved the holidays with them, and going to Kraynak's for the Easter and Christmas displays. Pauline and her husband attended Lake Pleasant United Methodist Church, where she said she always felt closer to the Lord, and her loving church family helped make her feel that way. She served on different boards and committees at the church and, up to her illness, was the treasurer. Pauline had such a great love for her grandchildren. She loved watching Aidan at all his sporting events, and playing bowling and Angry Birds games with Alex. She also loved the music Anja would play on her violin; and always had fond memories of building with Legos when Patrick was young, as well. In addition to her parents, Pauline was preceded in death by a sister, Eva Cirillo and a brother, David Magee. She is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Robert; her daughters, Diana Groters, Vicky Blasco and husband, Dion; her son, George and his wife, Heather; her sister, Janice Wallis; and four grandchildren, that she was so very proud of and loved with all her heart, Patrick Henderson, Anja Blasco, and Aidan and Alex Fickenworth; and special friends, Linda, Art and Diane, Bonnie and Wade, Mimi and Lyle, and her church family.
