One of Pauline's most incredible gifts was her ability to build deep relationships. In their 63-year marriage, Pauline and Gus forged a life-long bond, building a tight-knit family and many special friendships. While her talents in the kitchen helped to bring people together (like her prize-winning bannock), it was her generosity of spirit that truly lit up a room.
Pauline was a gracious host, inviting to everyone, and always encouraging a good time. She would always insist you "have another" and keep the Hank Williams tunes on heavy rotation. She made time to connect with people in meaningful ways. It was amazing to see how she made each one of her grandchildren feel special, maintaining their own inside jokes and cherished memories. So much so, that some of the grandkids liked to compete to be named "her favourite."
The gift that Pauline gave her family was to make everyone feel intricately connected and unwaveringly loved. She had great bonds with her siblings, her in-laws, her nieces, nephews, and close friends. Her spirit lives on in her great grandchildren, who knew her as Ol' Granny. We look forward to the opportunity to celebrate her life when we can gather once again. Many thanks and much love for all of the support and kind words at this most difficult time.
There will be no formal funeral service at this time.
In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made to the St.Eustache Parish Cemetery Fund.
