Cook, author and caretaker. Affectionately called "Pauline" by her employer Elvis Presley, she joined his staff in the 1960's and stayed as part of the regular Graceland staff until her retirement in 1990. She, along with her husband were one of the very few staff members who stayed on after Elvis died. Her husband was given the job of security guard after Elvis learned he had been laid off from his job. Not only was Pauline the cook, she was a sometime confidant of Elvis, for whom she affectionately called "Mr. P", and the occasional caretaker of Lisa Marie during her visits at Graceland. She was featured in the movie "This is Elvis" and later wrote a cookbook of recipes of the dishes she cooked at Graceland.Pauline would occasionally come out of retirement at the request of Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley to cook their Presley Christmas family dinners at Graceland. The last time was in December, 2004 while a CBS television crew was there taping a television special titled "Elvis by the Presley's". She was featured in the special as well. She died of cancer at age 76.
