Even though I didn't know my Aunt Pauline very well what I do remember is that she would welcome us with open arms on her few visits from Texas. She was such a kind hearted and loving person who instantly made you feel at home. She always had plenty of food and anything you might like. She made sure everyone was well fed and that no one was left hungry. She always had an assortments of sweets and candies to chose from as well. My dad loved his sweets and we usually had an assortment of jars or bowls of candy around our house. Family would often comment it looks like "Aunt Pauline's house in here." Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Our DEAREST Aunt Pauline was such a shining light of warmth, joy, and love to us all. In all the visits we made to Pennsylvania, the highlight was always the opportunity to get together with all our cousins at Uncle Don and Aunt Pauline's house. It was a house full of laughter, filled to the brim candy dishes sure to have just what you were craving, and the anticipated endless list of random food Aunt Pauline would go through until you said yes to something to eat. "Would you like some ice cream, Rusty. I have three kinds and chocolate sauce and pretzel sticks, Rusty! OH, I got your favorite sticky buns, Rusty, made fresh just this morning,. There's Moyer's chips over here, Rusty. I had Don get them when we knew you and your family were coming. I have a lasagna from the Legion Hall or baked beans, Rusty." The whole house would erupt in laughter knowing Rusty had been reeled in to be fed. Aunt Pauline was not going to have anyone leave her home hungry or wanting for more on her watch. When it was time to leave, it would start again. "Take some candy for the drive home, Rusty. The children can choose as much as they want!" She was always so thoughtful of what we liked and assured it would be available when we arrived; and indeed, we never left Aunt Pauline's house hungry or without a big smile on our faces!

We have such great memories of the cookouts on the front porch, the endless stories and memories shared by all, the baseball games in the yard with four generations all playing, and our Dear Aunt Pauline laughing till her sides would hurt. She had the BEST joyful laugh. Her loving touch was sure to sooth a child's boo boo, holding and rocking them until it was all better. She knew when something was awry and gently probed to let you know you could talk to her. Her counsel and loving advise, seeming to always have just the right things to say, was welcomed and appreciated. We were so grateful and touched by Aunt Pauline's visits to see Julia and flowers sent to the Hershey Rehab Hospital, at a time when she was separated from her family, Aunt Pauline will be greatly missed by our family and so many others.

We offer our condolences to all of her children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends. She touched more lives than any could ever know. We so dearly loved our Aunt Pauline and wish for her a happy reunion with her beloved Don and family members that were there to greet her as she passed. Heaven gained one of the most joyful and faithful servants to our Lord. May she be rewarded as greatly as she gave and served others.

With much heartfelt love,

Rusty, Julia, and Adam Smith
