We were so sorry to hear of Pauline's passing. Our hearts go out to each and every one of you. We enjoyed seeing her in mass each week when we all were able to attend at St. Mary's. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Mary and all of Pauline's family:
I so enjoyed seeing her weekly at Bonell when I would visit and take my mom to weekly communion service. I've thought of her often since Bonell went into lockdown so long ago and am very saddened to discover that she has passed. But what a wonderful full, rich life she led. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear Ken, Teresa, Mary and families,
My heart goes out to all of you. What a remarkable lady and life! I can't think of a GWHS soccer game without seeing her on the bleachers, no matter the weather. We all loved her. Wish I could be there with you to celebrate her life. She'll be missed.
