Pauline Young was born on January 14, 1929 to Regina and Gottfried Schultz of Mazenod, SK. She attended school in Mazenod until moving to Mortlach in April 1945. Pauline helped on the family farm and later worked in the General Hospital in Moose Jaw. In 1949 she went to Saskatoon to train as a Certified Nursing Assistant and after graduating she worked for 30 years in various hospitals across Canada. It was a good way to see the country!
In 1971 Pauline was working in the hospital in Central Butte, AB where she met Dale Young who was home on vacation. They courted long distance as Dale was working for his aunt and uncle in Consort, AB. They finally got everything together and decided to get married on April 29, 1972 and made their home in Consort.
In November 1973, they became parents when they had their only child, a daughter they named Audra. In 1974 they purchased their own farm near Red Willow where they raised cattle and also grain farmed until 1995 when they retired to Stettler.
Pauline’s unwavering Christian faith guided her through life. She was involved in many ventures throughout the years at St. Peter Lutheran Church, attended Bible study and worked with the other Lutheran ladies sewing quilts. She had a very charitable and giving heart. Pauline had a love of horticulture and as a talented gardener, she had the ability to make anything grow and bloom. She was an artist and an avid reader who said that reading is an education in itself. And of course, she always had a cute little joke to tell you. Pauline passed away in Stettler, Alberta on December 16, 2015 at the age of 86 years.
She is remembered and forever missed by her husband Dale and daughter Audra (Chris). Pauline is survived by her sisters Elma (Ted), Frieda, Irene (Jake) and Martha along with Dale’s family; Jack (Marj), Shirley, Stuart (Dianne) and Larry (Kerryl) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her brother Alfred and sisters Millie and Elsie, brothers in law Ted D., Bruce, Ed, Ted A. and Bob.
“Bye for now, Mom.”
