    Carol, and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I met your Mom a few times and she was delightful. My thoughts are with you.

  3. Jan (Newman) Brinkert says:

    Your mother was a sweet person who gave the world her best
    2 gifts–Dan and Carol. My mom admired Pauline’s ability to
    make perfect divinity candy and was delighted when she
    received it as a gift while she served as Dan and Carol’s
    Sunday School teacher. Both of your parents were gentle
    and steadfast. I’m so sorry for your loss, but have confidence
    that happy memories will keep them alive in your hearts.

    Blessings to you and your families.

  4. Bob and Mary Beth Porter says:

    Pauline was a genuinely kind individual…what you saw was what you got. She was always warm and friendly and came with a welcoming smile. I would love to know how many of those wonderful rolls she made over the years…they each were perfect. Pauline and Bob were so fortunate to have the loving and caring family they had…all devoted. Quiet people, hard working, but always willing to help. They will be missed.
