  • We thought of Pauline as a member of our family. For over 50 years, we played together, worked together, we went on picnics together, and we raised our children together. Pauline was the most caring, thoughtful, and giving person we ever had the pleasure of knowing. Even when she was ailing, she brought us soups, casseroles, and many other dishes to our home. We loved her and will miss her. The one thing we regret is that we didn’t get to give her the extra burnt hotdog that she loved. With lots of love-Marge and Jim Cowan and family.
