My Amazing Grandmother
My grandmother passed away Wednesday night. She was 93 years old. She had 9 children, 14 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.
Here is an excerpt from her obituary:
Pauline would eventually meet her future husband, Lieutenant Michael Toms, on a ship heading for Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where they would both survive the infamous attack on December 7, 1941.
Also, here is a joke that she told at Thanksgiving or Christmas a few years ago:
Two guys were sitting in a room in their nursing home with the door open. Some women in the nursing home thought the men weren’t getting enough excitement and decided to run past the door naked. The men saw the women streak by out of the corners of their eyes. One of the men asked the other, “Did you see that? What were they wearing?” The other man responded, “I don’t know, but it needs to be ironed.”
Pauline Evelyn Toms (1922-2015)
