Pauline was born on April 10, 1930 in New Orleans, LA. She was a longtime resident of St. Bernard Parish and a current resident of Ft. Worth, TX. Pauline was a people person and did quite well with her ipad for a senior. She loved Facebook, chocolate ice cream and bird watching. She even had her own binoculars. Granny was always ready to be the star of any picture.
Early on in her Christian walk (1973) she loved to sing in the choir. At one point she felt useless because of her age but soon after she realized that she was the Prayer Warrior for her family and friends. Everyone would call Granny and she would put them on her prayer list and pray faithfully every day for that person. She will be forever remembered and deeply missed by her family and friends.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation to be held at Church of the King, 22205 Little Creek Rd, Mandeville, LA on Monday, August 28, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.. A funeral service will begin at 11:00 a.m. She will be laid to rest in St. Bernard Memorial Gardens, Chalmette, LA. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Sanctuary of Hope or Exodus II through John Hagee Ministries in her honor.
