(nee Appolonia Topolniski)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, mother- in-law, grandma and great-grandma. Pauline passed away with her loving family by her side on May 2, 2013. She is predeceased by her husband Chester and survived by her children Leonard (Lydia), Robert (Burnie), and Joanne (Lucio). She is adored by her grandchildren Michael, Mark, Laura, Lucas, Sahra and Adam, her great-grandchildren Kate and Joshua and many cherished nieces and nephews. Mom, your gifts to us were overwhelming and your warmth, spirit, love, and your kind heart were just a few traits that made you so special. Your ability to not judge others and to see the best in everyone will be treasured always. You were a gracious lady who always gave unconditional love, endless support with the kindest heart. Your legacy will be carried by your children and grandchildren who adored you. Visitation on Sunday May 5, 2013 from 2 to 5 p.m. to 7 to 9 p.m. and Monday May 6, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. in Rideau Funeral Home, 4275 Des Sources, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Qc, 514-685-3344. A service will be held on Monday May 6, 2013 at 11 a.m. in the St. Thomas à Becket, 4320 Ste-Anne, Pierrefonds, Qc. In memory of Pauline, donation to Breast Cancer Foundation would be appreciated. Words, nor sentiments can express how greatly she will be missed and how she was especially proud to be able to see her grandchildren grow to be fine young adults. Mom, we love you so very much and will miss you dearly.
