Pauline, called Bama by her Grandchildren, was a beautiful, classy lady who was always happy, laughing and dancing around. Her style of dress, impeccable hair, nails and makeup, could put today's runway models to shame. Pauline loved all life gave her. She in turn was loved by all who knew her.
Love and miss her still.
