Pauline Ruth Hood Howard (1935 - 2010)

Pauline "Polly" Howard, 74, of Caldwell, died Monday, Sept. 6, 2010, at a local hospital

Pauline was born on Oct. 31, 1935, in Parma, to Clyde and Mae (McDaniel) Hood. She was raised with three sisters and a brother on a farm in the Riverside area of Caldwell.
She attended school at Knowlton Heights, Riverside and Houston, then attended high school in Caldwell. Because the family could not afford gas for a trip to town every day, Pauline went to live with Mom and Dad Wright in Caldwell, where she acquired another sister, Alyce Wright Lewis.
She graduated from Caldwell High School in 1953. Pauline married Alfred Leroy Howard on April 10, 1953, at Boone Memorial Church in Caldwell. They had been married for 40 years when Al passed away in 1993.
Her work life included being secretary at the First Baptist Church in Caldwell for many years, then she worked in the office at Caldwell High School for eight years during her children's high school years. She finished her working career at Boise Cascade Containers in Nampa, retiring in 1986. Pauline loved her Canyon Hill Church family and was quite active up until the last couple of years.
She always seemed to have her hands in Women's Ministry, the Church Board or helping fix meals at the church for every occasion.
She was always active in helping to organize her school reunions and met every month for breakfast at Mr. V's with her classmates, and she was always available to help them with whatever they needed done.
What can we say about the Red Hatters, she was there as often as she could be, she really loved her red hats and purple dresses and all of her friends there. She loved her kids, grandkids and great- grandkids and would do almost anything for any one of them.
Pauline always gave from her heart even if she was in need herself.
Pauline is survived by her sisters Francie Johnston, Margie Fairweather and her husband John, her brother James Hood and his wife, Susan. She is also survived by her children Linda Howard Dobler, David and Suezie Howard, Debbie and Scott Penrod, Daniel and Sandy Howard, her grandchildren; Teia, Nicholas, Cory, Vicki, Jennifer, Jessica, BreAnne, KayLee and DJ and last but not least eight great-grandkids, Zacheriah, Izaac, Collin Ray, Kaleb, Julian, Madyson, Jake and Lily. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Al, her parents and an older sister.
Pauline was a member of the Canyon Hill Church of the Nazarene, Caldwell.
A service will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, Sept. 10, at Canyon Hill Church of the Nazarene in Caldwell, officiated by Pastor David Fraley.
The burial will follow at Canyon Hill Cemetery in Caldwell. Friends may call Friday, Sept. 10, from 1 to 2 p.m., at the church.
Our thanks to Flahiff Funeral Chapel, our church family and our many friends for all their loving care at this difficult time.
