Pauline and Marion’s Family
Pauline was a member of the Plymouth Church of Christ and volunteered as an organist. She practiced playing the piano and organ at home and encouraged her family to sing. She loved working in her flower gardens, and enjoyed the humming birds. She and daddy helped the family as well as their community, including Pop. Going to the beach with the family was a special treat for all. To be near her husband, she learned to hunt. She and daddy always offered a helping hand to others and shared whatever they had. The family loved mama and daddy very much. We miss them but have good memories about the time spent together.
