Jeanne M. Paulin, 98, a resident at Marywood Heights Care Center, died Sunday Jan. 10, 2021, at Moses Taylor Hospital. She was the widow of Pierre Paulin, and was preceded in death by her first husband, Frank Streznetcky.

In 1946, she traveled to the United States with her husband Frank, whom she met and married in Paris, France, during WWII. She taught herself English and raised a family in the United States.
