“The world is diminished because she is gone, but it is still a better place because she was here” – Author Unknown
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Pauline Doyle Halle announces her passing on August 13, 2020. Pauline was born in Dundee, Scotland to Thomas and Mary Doyle on July 2, 1938. As a young woman, she traveled to New York for work, where she met Paul Halle. Eventually, Pauline returned home to Scotland, but after months of long-distance courting, Pauline agreed to come back to New York, where she and Paul were married on August 8, 1964.
Pauline was a truly remarkable woman, who was deeply cherished by her husband and children. After moving to Florida in 1979, she worked for both Mae Volen Senior Center and Hospice by the Sea as a respite worker, and also volunteered at the Alzheimer’s Association. Her proudest achievement though was in raising strong, independent children. She will be remembered as a kind and loving, albeit fierce Scottish woman, who would go to the ends of the earth for her family, and could “squeeze a penny ‘til it screamed”.
A few short months after her husband passed, Pauline suffered a stroke on what would have been their 56th wedding anniversary. She is survived by her children, Edythe (George) Grinter, Carolyn Halle, Allen (Karen) Halle, Paulin Halle, David (Cheryl) Halle, Sandra (Todd) Huffman and Heather (Stanley) Green, along with a multitude of adoring grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Paul, her daughter, Lorraine Tibcken, and granddaughter, Kezia Elyse Tibcken.
There will be a funeral service for Pauline at 9:00AM on Monday, August 17, 2020 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Deerfield Beach. She will be laid to rest at Our Lady Queen of Heaven in North Lauderdale, Florida.
