Obituary for Pauline "Paulie" Evelyn Church

August 30, 1924 - December 2, 2017
Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 93


Pauline "Paulie" E. Church of Manchester, NH died peacefully on Saturday, December 2, 2017, at Catholic Medical Center after a period of declining health. She was surrounded by her family whom she loved dearly.

She was born in Old Town, ME, on August 30, 1924, daughter of Cato and Nellie Meader.

Paulie was a shining example of living life with a positive loving attitude. Getting together with her family was her greatest joy. She enjoyed reading, hobbies and her passion was watching "Dancing with the Stars" and "her Max". She thoroughly enjoyed writing a monthly column in the "Meetinghouse Moments" at The Meetinghouse at Riverfront where she lived in her later years and where she had many friends and had much respect.

In her life she had the opportunities to live in Portland, ME; Peabody, MA; Troy, MI; Boxford, MA; Londonderry, NH; and her beloved cottage on Back Lake in Pittsburg, NH, where she loved snowmobiling with her husband and family. She loved her trips to Italy with her husband and spoke of them often.
Most of all her love was her family. She had great pride in her four sons, their wives, her seven grandchildren and her six great-grandchildren who brought her great joy in her later years.

Left to remember her love are her four sons and their families: Peter D. Church and wife, Linda, of Punta Gorda, FL; Paul G. Church and wife, Cindy, of Manchester, NH; Donald H. Church III and wife, Debbie, of Weare, NH; and Dana T. Church and wife, Julie, of Goffstown, NH. Her grandchildren: Catherine Church Li and husband, Ben; Lisa Church and husband, Devon; Diana Church Flahive and husband, Michael; Timothy Church and wife, Melissa; Bethany Church McCauley; Donald H. Church IV; and Christopher Church.

Her great-grandchildren include Gavin and Ethan Li, Madison and Andrew Flahive, Lily Church, and Rowan McCauley. She also leaves many nieces and nephews in Maine.

Paulie was predeceased by her loving husband, Donald H. Church Jr.; her sister, Virginia Boyle, of Old Town, ME.; and her sister, Dorothy MacDonald of Dover-Foxcroft, ME.

The family would like to thank the staff of The Meetinghouse at Riverfront in Manchester, NH, and Bedford Hills Center in Bedford, NH, for the care given to her in her later years.

A gathering will be held Thursday, December 7th at 11am at the Cremation Society of New Hampshire, 243 Hanover Street, Manchester, NH with a memorial service at 12pm. In lieu of flowers Paulie has requested contributions to the Leukemia Society in memory of her late husband, Donald.
