I'm so sorry for your loss. I met Pauline at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. She was one of my instructors, and I absolutely loved her. She was kind and so experienced. She offered so many practical ideas for me to implement. I have been teaching for 30 years now, and I think of her often with much fondness. My thoughts and prayers are with you. -- Ann Lykke-Jaros, St. Charles, IA
Pauline was an excellent educator and wonderful person. She helped so many student teachers through her work at UNO. A life of service.
My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, May fond memories and God’s loving words carry you through and beyond this difficult time of mourning. Isaiah 57:15
