Pauline Vernetta Jarmon Obituary
Pauline Vernetta Jarmon was born on July 27, 1941 to the late Paul Edward and Ruth Brokenborough Jarmon. She peacefully departed this life in her home in Virginia Beach, Virginia on October 22, 2012. Pauline grew up in Zion Baptist Church of Ardmore, Pennsylvania where she was a member of several ministries. However, her voice on the youth choir became her trademark. Who could forget her beautiful rendition of "It Is No Secret What God Can Do! Pauline's spirituality continued to evolve throughout her life. She loved the Lord, and knew He was her savior! Education was a major focus. Pauline graduated from lower Merion High School, Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, and Seton Hall University where she received a master's degree in educational media. Education also became Pauline's profession. She taught students in the St. Thomas School System for five years; and thoroughly enjoyed the soothing, rhythmic, and cultural environment of the Virgin Islands. Pauline subsequently wanted a change, so she relocated to New Jersey. She taught students in the Newark School System, and later became a media specialist. She established a media center for the Harold Wilson School. Pauline was an asset to the educational program of the Newark School System; for she was awarded the honor of Governor's Teacher of the Year. With her kind and gently manner, Pauline was well liked by students, parents, and co-workers. After thirty-six years of educational experiences, Pauline retired; purchased a home; and moved to Virginia Beach. During her retirement years, she volunteered in human service organizations. She also maintained associations with her "sister friends" as they traveled the world together, enjoyed the theatre, concerts, shopping, and family gatherings. Pauline leaves to cherish her memory: brothers Vernal (Brenda) and Arnold; sister Charlotte; aunts Aletha Brokenborough Dabney and Virginia Brokenborough Moffitt; special cousin Yvonne Gilmore Jordan; stepmother Essie Jarmon; and sister friends Faye and Loretta Britten, Betty Debnaun, Sandra Frierson, Cynthia Scott-Harris, and Sandra Snead; and many other family members and friends. All are invited to attend Pauline's Memorial Service on November 17th at Zion Baptist Church, 221 West Spring Avenue, Ardmore, Pennsylvania at 1:00.
