Jan 14th 1956 — Mar 16th 2023 (67 years)
Pauline passed away peacefully on March 16, 2023. She is survived by her loving husband of 40 years Ross, sons Paul (Tenley) and Chris (Claudia), grandchildren Grayson, Sloane, and Taylor, brother Pierre and sister Diane. She was predeceased by sister Louise and brother Andre. Pauline was born in Quebec City and lived there into her early twenties. Moving to Toronto gave her the opportunity to learn English and set down roots for her family for the next 45 years. From High Park to Vandorf, Pauline and Ross eventually relocated to Gravenhurst to enjoy their golden years. Pauline’s effervescent personality and ability to make fast friends made each of those moves seamless; she charmed both young and old wherever she went. Diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer, Pauline passed the way she lived, caring more about others than herself. Right to the very end she didn’t want people to fuss over her, not wishing to inconvenience anyone over her condition. On top of doting on the ones she loved, she enjoyed watching movies and playing cards with a glass of sauvignon blanc. She remained exceptionally close to her family in Quebec, frequently returning and was the life of the party. Pauline will forever be remembered as a thoughtful wife, loving mother, adoring grandmother and caring friend to many. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, May 28 at the Muskoka Wharf in Gravenhurst.

I just learned of Pauline's death. She was my cousin. I remember her as a nice and cheerful person. Sincere sympathy to the family.

Pauline was one of my closest friends here in Muskoka. We bonded right away, especially when she discovered her Irish roots!! I told her we were long-lost sisters!!
I will miss her friendship, her kindness and all the fun "shopping" times we had. As a friend once told me, The people we love become a part of who we are.
Will think of you always, Pauline.

A hard loss for you Roscoe and your family. She was an amazing individual, a woman of substance. She was so strong and positive throughout the past challenging 17 months. I will miss her bright smile around our tight community here at the wharf , our bid euchre card games, oft times late into the evening. So many good times. We weren’t done yet. Sincere sympathy to you Roscoe and your family.
Catherine & Gerry Lodge.
