G. Paulina Batog

Obituary Condolences

G. Paulina Batog of Citrus Springs, Florida passed away peacefully on October 9, 2014 following a brief illness. She was 86 years old. Born in Taunton, Massachusetts, she was the daughter of Francisco Carreiro and Madeline (Thomas) Wheeler. She was the beloved wife of Major Stanley J. Batog (U.S. Army-Retired), who predeceased her in 2011. Prior to her marriage in 1948, Paulina was employed by New England Telephone and Telegraph Company as an operator. Following her marriage and during her husbands lengthy military career, Paulina served her country as the consummate Army Wife, holding down the home front, raising their five (5) children, teaching catechism classes, leading girl scout troops and volunteering at the base hospital. Following her husbands retirement from the military, Paulina re-entered the workforce, returning to work for the New England Telephone Company. During her employment she received her rating and was one of the first women to work in a position previously only held by men within the Company. She was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the Pioneers. Paulina was extraordinarily gifted working with her hands creating needlepoint masterpieces, warm Irish knit sweaters and heirloom quilts for her family. In memory of her nephew who died of Aids during the beginning of the pandemic, Paulina made a quilt panel for him as part of The Names Project. The panel is part of the AIDS Memorial Quilt displayed across the United States. When Paulina was not busy with a project, she enjoyed playing bridge. She was a member of the Ocala Duplicate Bridge Club and a Silver Grand Master. Following the loss of her husband, her friends at bridge helped to brighten her days. A special thanks to all of Paulinas friends at bridge for their companionship, kindness and support over the years. Paulina is survived by her five children, Danny E. Batog and his wife Jayne Batog, of Franklin, Massachusetts, Danielle E. Batog and her husband John Wohlfahrt, of Beverly Hills, Florida, Denise E. Batog of Franklin, Massachusetts, Donna E. Batog and her wife Renee Batog, of Seffner, Florida and Deborah E. Batog of Franklin, Massachusetts and her eight grandchildren, Jennifer A. Batog, Christian T. Batog, Laura E. Batog, all of Franklin, Massachusetts, Erin C. Batog of Boston, Massachusetts, Adriana L. Marcelli of Franklin, Massachusetts, Nicole L. Nelson of Seffner, Florida, Samantha Wohlfahrt of Beverly Hills, Florida and Juliana C. Potter of Franklin, Massachusetts. She is also survived by three great grandchildren, who brought her tremendous joy, Elizabeth Warren, Bruce Michael Warren and Margaret Warren all of Franklin, Massachusetts. In lieu of a service, expressions of sympathy can be made in Paulinas name to hospice care or veterans organizations of ones choice.
