It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Paulina Chapman on Saturday, March 28, 2020. Paulina passed peacefully at Selkirk Regional Health Centre, at the age of 86 years.
Born in Melrose, Manitoba, Paulina lived most of her life in Stonewall, Manitoba. Paulina loved her family and her faith and was always there for anyone who needed support, guidance or a friend.
She is survived by her son Donald Chapman, Sharon Chapman (Kevin Adam), and grandchildren, Gieun Chapman (Michelle), Soyun Chapman (Jesse), Nahyun Arnal (Joel) and Parker Adam (Bryn). She is also survived by her sisters, Francis, Kathy, Julie and Cecile, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

In keeping with her strong belief in God and the Holy Spirit, a mass will be held in her honour at a later date. A second announcement will be made at that time.
The family would like to thank the staff of Stonewall & District Health Centre and Selkirk Regional Health Centre for their compassionate care recently and over the past number of months. Special thanks also go to her neighbours and dedicated friends who have always been there to support her.

  • Dearest Sharon and Donald, I'm so sorry about your wonderful Mother's sudden passing. She was an inspiration to me when I was growing up and in all the years that followed. She really cared about people. And always tried to do what she thought was right-no matter how hard it was. I believe she was a true hero. Not just in terms of her own life, but also in the lives of everyone she touched. Take care of, and be kind, to yourselves and your families at this difficult time. Love you, Josie - Posted by: Josie Young (Niece) on: Apr 10, 2020

  • Aunt Pauline, I loved talking to you long distance almost every day. You always had a positive outlook on life. Knowing that I will never be able to do that again leaves me with a deep sense of remorse. I'll miss you more than I can possibly explain in a note. My sincere condolences to Sharon, Donald, and your families. R.I.P. Aunt Pauline Al Mueller - Posted by: Al Mueller (Nephew) on: Apr 09, 2020

  • My mom Frances and her sister Paulina lived a block away from each other while raising their children. They were always the best of friends and shared life experiences which enriched both their and their families lives. They came from a close knit family that always helped each other. Paulina was a god send. When my mom Frances needed someone to stay with her after her heart surgery she turned to her sister and was so thankful when Paulina agreed. Rest In Peace Auntie Polly you will be missed. - Posted by: Susanne Strell (Niece) on: Apr 08, 2020
