So sad to hear of Pauline ‘s passing! My heart goes out to her sons! She was a wonderful person and I always enjoyed our conversations!

The world has lost a marvellous person. Not only on a personal level , a great friend and confidant but also on a business level. Pauline strived to make the world a better place. She worked endlessly at improving the quality of life for those with disabilities. Her hard work will not be forgotten ,nor will she.
I miss you already. Farewell old friend.

Thinking of the family at this time. Remembering fondly Pauline, her lovely smile and always words of wisdom. It was over 20 years since I had seen you but I had never forgotten you and your kindness to me and my family! Rest in pease.

To the Crann family,
I will be thinking of you all, during this difficult time.
My God give you strength and courage in the days ahead.
Please except my Sincere Condolences.

To Aaron, Evan, Marlene, Michellle and Heather
We were shocked and very saddened to hear of Pauline’s passing. We were part of Pauline’s growing up years in the church in Gander. She was in my (Edna’s) Sunday School class along with 9 others and we had lots of fun studying the Bible, with lots of questions , celebrating birthdays and other special occasions with a party. I taught her to play the timbrels and she was very special as were the others. I (Edna) am lost for words to express how I feel at this time but I know that God’s Holy Spirit will comfort us all. We will all meet again someday if we are true and faithful. We will uphold you all in prayer at this time and in the days to come. Please take comfort in the words of Jesus when He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Love to you all.

Calvin and Edna Way.

We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Pauline. We remember her most for her love and concern for Evan and Aaron, wanting only that her two boys be happy. Time and distance made it hard to keep connections but we were so happy to see her when she came to Oakville to pick up her service dog – she had such a positive, engaging outlook on life.
Much love to you all – may your memories of her help you through the days ahead.
Aunt Doreen and Uncle Frank

So sorry to hear of Pauline’s passing. Michael and I were given the privilege to know this wonderful lady in 2001. She had a profound impact on our lives. She was a person of great courage who faced her circumstances head on. Her smile was contagious she was our inspiration. We will be praying that the God of comfort will wrap His loving arms around you all in this time of sadness.
