To date their offspring including children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren number 47 – 5 generations!
Busy as young mothers are, she found time to search for God and became a dedicated worshipper of her God Jehovah. Pauline lived her life as a faithful person sharing her beliefs to all who would hear. She also loved to sew and knit. Her last big project was knitting beautiful shawls for her great grand children. After the death of her husband she briefly returned to Nanaimo from Courtenay. In Nanaimo she made many new friends and enjoyed her brothers and sisters who are still in Nanaimo.
Failing health prompted her to move to Qualicum Beach, closer then to her children. There she was given loving attention surrounded to the end by her family and friends.
On November 13, 2010 she went to “sleep” there to wait in peace for her resurrection to Paradise in God’s Kingdom.
Pauline received the best of help and was greatly comforted by all at Qualicum Manor. The family sincerely them for this.
Service was held at the Qualicum Kingdom Hall on November 15, 2010.
