Pauline worked as a store clerk for the Gibson's Department Store in Columbus. She lived in Columbus since 1970.

Pauline loved Papa, her children, grandchildren and great grands. She enjoyed fishing anytime anywhere, and then frying them up crispy for all to enjoy. Also, square dancing where Papa was her preferred partner, they moved as one; hunting in Colorado with her sisters and their husbands. Not to hunt but to share that special time with her sisters laughing til they cried.
