Dear Ron, Lucille, and Donovan family,
I am sorry to hear about Pauline's passing. We looked forward every year to visiting with her and your mom, Peg, when she was still alive, taking them to lunch, etc. The stories they told me about my Mom, when she was young. They were both so sweet and fun to be around. Pauline introduced Bob to Creme a' dacassie, with wine. He will always think of her when he has a glass. They used to have one when we visited her in her apartment. I have sweet memories of both lovely sisters, and I thank you for sharing them with us. I truly am a better person for having met them. Rest in peace lovely ladies...with much love and affection, Judy and Bob

Pauline (we called her Paulie) was a neighbor of ours when she lived next door to us on Middle Street in Saco in the 1980s. What a lovely lady. Always smiling and very kind.

My maternal grandmother Agnes Pinard Brouillard used to live with Pauline in Biddeford at what I believe was a boarding house off upper Hill Street that Pauline's parents owned.

The last time we saw Pauline at her home in Ocean Park, she reminisced about my grandmother and she gave us some treasured memories. My Aunt Jacklyn Brouillard Beaudoin had fond memories of Pauline as well. My mother Simone Spenard Lapierre sent Aunt Jackie Pauline;s obituary as she now lives in Arizona and we are sure she would want to know.

We send our best to you for your loss (what a lovely life she had). Colette Lapierre & Christopher Haskell

Pauline had such a beautiful personality, and when she laughed you laughed with her, she was spunky and everyone that met her loved her instantly. I will cherish every moment I had with her and will miss her dearly. Love you Pauline, rest in peace sweetie.
