Throughout their life together, they enjoyed riding their motorcycle, many family beach trips, camping with their close friends and spoiling their eight grandchildren (Jeffery, Capella, Anthony, Stephen, Casey, Andrea, Sarah and Carmen), 18 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren. After the passing of her beloved husband, Pauline came out of retirement to fulfill her days as a cafeteria worker at Lake Norman High School. She also spent many hours enjoying gospel music and the affection of her devoted fur babies.
