1942 ~ 2004
Pauline passed away gracefully at home on Tuesday, 20 April 2004, with her family by her side. She had put up a courageous battle against cancer for a year. This was the day that the eagles wept!
Pauline will be enormously missed by William, her husband of 38 years; her daughter, Leah; her son, Billy and his partner, Crystal; her sisters: Denise, Lucy, Carmen, Reine and Francine; and her brothers: Paul, Maurice and Gilles Desautels.
Pauline will always be remembered for her fantastic smile, especially as a Snow Host at Mount Washington, her contagious laugh riding her “Baby Vulcan” motorcycle, her spontaneity and generosity in dealing with others and her overall great spirit towards a true joy of life.
A Memorial Service “Ma Vie” will be held at the Comox Valley Funeral Home, 1101 Ryan Road, Courtenay, B.C. on Saturday, 15 May, 2004 at 2:00 pm. All of her many friends are welcome. Please, flowers and donations are not required. Thank you.
