Pauline H.

Born March 30, 1923 in Okemah, Oklahoma to Milton and Grace Parris; passed away April l9, 2011 in Spokane. Pauline came out west as a child, just as portrayed in the move "The Grapes of Wrath." Her father drove one truck and her brother Am drove the other. They settled in a small town called Maringo on the Tucannon River (no longer there) south of Pomeroy, WA. She grew up during the depression. Pauline went to school in a small school house that had grades 1 through 8 in Maringo then to high school in Pomeroy. She milked eight cows before school then did the same again after school. She worked at Geiger during WWII. She was the base commander's secretary at Fairchild after WWII. Pauline met George Julien after the war and they married April 19, 1947. They started their own company in 1955, building it from one small truck to what it is today. They lost two children and raised three. Pauline is survived by her husband, George Julien; son, Larry Julien; daughters: Catherine Julien, Sharon Young; grandchildren: Marty Julien, Jess Julien, Julieanne Young, Dallas Young and all the great-granchildren.
