She dearly loved each and every grandchild.
Pauline was a lifetime member of the Methodist Church since she was baptized at the age of 9 years old. Since that time she has lived the life of a faithful prayer warrior dedicated to serving and loving her Savior. Until the last few years of her life she read her Bible and prayed daily, by name, for her children, grandchildren and other people and situations that came to her mind. She showed this love, not only to her family but to her friends and coworkers. One friend expressed at one of her birthday celebrations that she had not only planted a rose bush in her life but she had planted a garden. That was a wonderful characterization of the giving and loving person that she was to all who knew her.
She was a seamstress by trade in the factory and also at home as she sewed many items of clothing that blessed all who enjoyed her talent. She crafted pretty dresses for young and old, suits, tuxedos, wedding dresses and fashioned many beautiful quilts that adorn the beds of most of her children and grandchildren along with a few friends.
She lived a long and blessed life in spite of much sorrow and heartache. In spite of those tragedies her life was a testimony of the power of love and forgiveness that she learned from the Master. When asked what she attributed to her long life, her reply was to live life the best you can and ask the Lord for help. She said we make life what it is, you can be good or you can be bad. Just do good.
In all of her living her greatest hope was in the day she would see her Savior. She would get all excited when she thought about it -“What a day that will be, when my savior I shall see. When I look upon His face, the One who saved me by His grace, When He takes me by the hand and leads me through the promise land. What a day, glorious day that will be.” In one interview for the newspaper she was asked what would be her one birthday wish. With a somber attitude she stated, “I do not know the condition of everyone; but for them to know where they are going and get on the right track and to know that we can all be together again someday as one big happy family. She left us all a blessed example: “I can say I have lived as best as I could for my children to see.” May all hear and follow in her footsteps.
