To Pauline's family, your mother, grandmother was a beautiful person. Always and I mean always had a smile on her face whenever I saw her. I remember her and Bryon at Bristol, such a lovely couple. I am sorry to read about her passing, but I am glad she was surrounded by love ones.
I worked at Bristol for 30 years and I can truly say, she lighted up the atmosphere wherever she went. God bless and keep you family, she was a jewel on this earth.

Pauline and I were good friends during our high school years. We kept in through later years at Christmas time and at class reunions. Mu husband enjoyed working with her at Bristol. My son Patrick worked at Oneida Shores Park with her sons, Paul and Ed. She was a true friend and a great lady. She will be missed by all who fortunate enough to know her.
