Date of Passing: Jun 03, 2019Offer Condolences or Memory
1929 - 2019
Pauline will be sadly missed by her son Doug (Christy); grandson Ryan (Laura) and granddaughter Chantel. She also leaves to mourn her nieces, Gayle (Doug), Cheryl, Carol, Lenore (Kerry) and Glenda as well many relatives and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, Anton and Dora; brothers, Michael and Joseph; sisters, Frances, Mary and Anne; and niece Leslie.
Pauline was born in Springfield, MB and moved to Kenora, ON for a few years before settling in Winnipeg. She worked over 30 years at Motor Coach Industries.
Her home on Clifton Street was her pride and joy; she was always doing renos, cleaning or working in her amazing garden. Pauline loved spending time at the family cabin at Ingolf, ON, sitting around the campfire with friends and family, playing cards or looking out at the lake. She loved all animals big or small. Pauline always had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh. She was also very independent and strong willed; she passed these traits onto our family and we are eternally grateful.
She was always there for family and friends. Her faith was very important to her and she was a member of St. Matthew's Anglican Church for many years.
The family would like to thank Pauline's priest, Gwen McAllister for being at her side in her last hours.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Pauline's life will take place at a later time.
"We loved you everyday, and
now we miss you everyday."

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Awe, I am so sorry to hear of Pauline's passing. Such a hardworking funny lady. She was so proud of Doug and her grandkids. Enjoyed their visits and so much appreciated their help over the years. She loved baking pies and cabbage rolls for her little family. Often she spoke fondly too about her outings with the girls (her nieces). Pauline often shared vegetables from her garden with me when I lived across the lane for 10 years. She struggled with leaving her home but quickly settled into a peaceful life in her apt, admitting to me that she wished she would have done it sooner. Was so thankful that Doug took her shopping, etc. I moved out of Manitoba in 2013, but we kept in touch with monthly phone calls. She was one of the first people I was going to visit. Hugs to all the important people she had in her life. - Posted by: Debbie Rettaler (fmr neighbour) on: Jun 17, 2019
