When Pauline was four years old, the family moved from Essex to the Knox family farm northwest of Essex. She attended Windy Summit country school and graduated from Essex High School in 1933.

In 1938, Pauline was united in marriage to Harold (Barney) Johnson. To this union two children were born: son, Robert and daughter, JoEllen.

After ten years in that position, she resigned to keep the books for her husband's trucking business. In 1959, she took a position as Secretary to the Superintendent of Essex Community Schools. She retired from that position after twenty-five years in 1984.

In 2006, she was honored to serve as the Grand Marshall of the Essex Labor Day parade.

She enjoyed playing bridge, other card games, and in later years, Rummy Cube with friends and family.

Pauline was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and many friends.
