In lieu of flowers, the family asks that anyone who wishes to honor her please make a donation in her name to American Humane, a charity committed to ensuring the safety, welfare and well-being of animals: – 1-800-227-4645.

Pauline adored her family and was also a lover of animals of all kinds, dedicating a large portion of her life to caring for and protecting stray animals. She was surrounded by pets of all sorts throughout her life. Though her special love was for dogs, she saved the lives of several dogs and cats by taking them in or offering them food when others had set them out to fend for themselves.
