Pauline worked at Huebsch Laundry in her early years.  She raised great-grandson, Michael Johnson, for 10 years.  She also loved her trailer in Chetek.  She was an awesome grandmother leaving behind many memories.  Pauline and Amy were especially close, spending time together from the beginning.

A special thanks goes to Care Partners and Care Partners Memory Care as they were much more than caregivers, you were truly family to us and especially to Pauline.  She loved all of the staff deeply.  Thanks also goes to Heartland Hospice.  As well as Corrine who gave and anticipated all of her needs.  You are special to us.

You will be showing everyone in Heaven your skinny jeans, boots, jewelry, scarves and hats.
