Pauline Janet JohnstonSeptember 1, 1943 ~ February 25, 2017 (age 73)
It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of Pauline on Saturday, February 25th 2017. Pauline passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, at the Ross Memorial Hospital in her 74th year. Pauline was predeceased by her parents Stanley and Stella Brown of Nova Scotia, her beloved husband Edward “Ted” Johnston, her brothers David of Toronto, Roy (Jean) of Oshawa, Robert (Phyllis) of Toronto, John of Toronto and her son-in-law Robert “Bob” Bulmer of Fenelon Falls. Loving mother to Edward (Linda) of Winnipeg, Angela of Fenelon Falls, and Ricky (Catherine) of Alabama. One of her proudest accomplishment was being Grandma “Ma” to her grandchildren, Katherine (Fiona), Alexandra (Steven), Murray, Shelby (Tanner), Jessica (Landon), Jennifer (Eric), Kimberly, and Mark. She was an over joyed Great-Grandmother to Stella Rae. She is dearly missed by her siblings Violet of Nova Scotia, Hazel (Jimmy) of New Brunswick, Medford (Pam) of Pickering, Joyce of Nova Scotia, Irene of Toronto, Paul (Eileen) of Nova Scotia, Darrell of Nova Scotia, and Russell (Annie) of Nova Scotia. She was loved by many other family member too numerous to mention all by name, including nieces and nephews. Pauline was born and raised in Caribou Gold Mines, Nova Scotia and moved with her family to Ontario in 1965. She was employed for 50 years in retail. She was an aficionado and lover of lottery and any other gambling forms. Her generosity throughout her entire life was the driving force of wanting to win enough to share with her whole family! The family would like to thank those who made Pauline’s final months and days more comfortable, her caring and devoted friend Wilma Fox, the staff at the Oshawa Cancer Centre, and the Palliative Care Team at the Ross Memorial Hospital. A special thanks, to Cindy, Lorraine, Med and Pam, who provided consistent love and support during her final months. Her interment is at Mount Lawn Cemetery in Whitby Ontario. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated. Online condolences may be made at www.lakelandfuneralcentre.com.
