Pauline spent her childhood in Ochelata before moving to Mounds OK where she met the love of her life Alvin "Al" McDonald. They were married in 1948 and were together for nearly 70 years. They had 8 children that they loved and were very proud of them.
Throughout the years she worked a variety of odd and end jobs. Such as ironing clothes, working at a greenhouse (she loved plants) and even an explosives factory. However, her full time job was MOM.
She had a great gift for crocheting. So many friends and family were on the receiving end of those beautiful gifts. She made everything from doilies, tablecloths, baby blankets and afghans. She made them until arthritis made it too difficult to do the thing she loved. She also loved her little dog Baby.
Pauline was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Al, her brothers Steven and Bill, and daughters-in-law, Cindy and Twink.
She is survived by her children: Mark, Cheryl & husband Rick, Mona & husband Roger, JP & wife Jamie, Mike & wife Jeri, Kelley & husband Joe, Kimi & husband Rommy, Brian, her sister Sandy, 14 grandchildren and numerous great & great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
The family will have a private memorial.
