WILSON PAULINE. Pauline Wilson, born in the second week of February 1921 in Pine River Manitoba, went to be with the Lord on July 25, 2012. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Mary (Tom), Wanda (Larry), John and Carl (Kathryn), as well as her grandchildren Tommy (Taryn), Becky, Joseph (Elin) and Jennifer and great grandchildren Keagan, Macy and Charlee May. Pauline was predeceased by her husband Charles Wilson. Pauline Wilson, known to most visitors at the Spring’s Cafe as Grandma Polly, arrived in Harrison as a young single woman. She fell in love with and married Charlie Wilson. Together they built the Spring’s Cafe and ran it as a team until Charlie died in a car accident in 1969. As a true sign of her ability to dig deep and work hard, Grandma managed to raise her children and successfully run the business for another three and a half decades. Grandma was so proud to have worked with all four of her children and all four of her grandchildren, until a fire destroyed the Cafe in 2005 and she was forced to retire at 84 years of age. Grandma never stopped learning and playing. She carpet bowled, china painted, knitted, crocheted, quilted, gardened and cooked for her family. Grandma loved her family and believed that memories were her most cherished possession. Funeral Service was held on Thursday, August 2 at 1:00 pm at the Agassiz United Church, 6860 Lougheed Highway, with Reverend Mary Duncan officiating. Flowers gratefully declined.
