Pauline, you have been missed for a while, since that nasty disease took you away from your Eastern Star friends at Pacific #129. I will always remember you as the beautiful elegant Queen Esther dressed in white. Thank you for the many years you shared with your Eastern Star friends and family. May you rest in peace and escape this craziness hear on earth. Until we meet again.

Pauline was always such a pleasant and sweet sister in law. Her battle is now over and she is seeing her Jesus and precious family. Sending prayers to the family.

So happy I got to share a few moments in the life of Pauline. She was always so kind and always had a beautiful smile. We got to share trips with James, Pauline and two sisters, Libby and Marlene. She is with Jesus now and her parents, Gary and our beloved Sharon. What a beautiful reunion we will have one day!
