She lived in Grafton for most of her life and spent the majority of her career at Gaudette Insurance Company where she worked for decades. If you knew Pauline away from work she’ll be remembered most for her warmth and kindness. If there was music playing you were certain to find Pauline dancing as she loved to polka, waltz, or jitterbug as this always brought joy to her.
