Aunt Pauline was a great Aunt. She leaves us with so many wonderful memories to treasure for all her love and kindness. She will be greatly missed.
Our sympathy to Dan, Linda, Ashley and Clayton.
Aunt Pauline will be dearly missed and forever remembered by her family and friends. She was truly a kind, loving and caring lady who was always nice and cheerful. While we mourn her loss we must also celebrate her life and the times we shared with her and Uncle George.
Dan, Linda, Ashley and Clayton,
We are deeply sorry to hear of the loss of Aunt Pauline. Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow.
In a way there are really no goodbyes. Wherever we are in life the people we love are always in our hearts and they are part of us.
Dan, Linda, Ashley, and Clayton,
You have our deepest sympathy with the passing of Aunt Pauline. I have so many fond memories of her and Uncle George. One of my favorites is when she would say “George” when Uncle George started to get a bit out of line…seems like that happened at least a few times a day. We always had a great time when we were able to visit with them. God bless her, we will miss Aunt Pauline.
For Danial Zofchak – Although I didn’t know you or your mother, I knew your brother David quite well. I met David 3 decades ago at the Virginia Beach Chess Club when I ran the club. We even worked together at QED Inc. for about a year before he went to work for Metro Infomation Services where he worked in Downtown Norfolk at the big bank.
I’m sorry about the loss of your mother. My mother died 10 years ago and I still miss her, so I know how hard it is to lose your mom. My condolences to you and your family.
I will always have wonderful memories of Aunt Pauline. She was a true lady who knew how to make everyone feel welcomed and loved. I will forever keep her memory and spirit in my heart.
I will miss my Aunt Pauline very much. She was the most kind and generous person, who always showed her love to you with welcome arms. I remember when I was a little girl and she gave me my first rosary beads. I still have them today and will always cherish that memory. When I lived in Newport News, Va., I enjoyed driving to see her and Uncle George. We would watch tv together and sometimes did a small art project together. Just the little things mean so much in life. Aunt Pauline was definately a woman to look up to, a role model. Her kindness, sweetness, and love will never be forgotten. I send my sympathy and love to Dan, Linda, Ashley, and Clayton.
I will miss my beloved sister. We always enjoyed being together, sewing together and being there for each other.
My sympathy to Dan, Linda, Ashley and Clayton.
My dear Aunt Pauline was such a wonderful lady. She had the sweetest and kindest heart, wonderful southern charm, and could sew up a storm – her talent for sewing was beyond compare. I will always treasure Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus she made for me.
Family was so important to her, and she always made anyone she knew feel so cherished. And I will always cherish memories of her in my heart.
My sincerest sympathy to Dan, Linda, Ashley and Clayton.
Pauline was a beautiful woman. She was warm, caring, and loved her family. It was a blessing to be a part of the family. I remember Pauline’s connection with Linda, her devoted daughter-in-law. Dan was her helper and cooking partner. The meals were amazing. Pauline doted on her beautiful grand-daughter Ashley. Anyone that spent time with Pauline felt special. She will be missed.
Sorry to hear about your loss. May God bless you and your family in this time of hard ship. Danny you
and I were friends in Forest Park many years ago.
