bullet  Facts and details for :

Her obituary was published in the Winnipeg Free Press on 5 Jul 2014. It read as follows:

PAULINE MCBURNEY On the morning of June 27, 2014, after a brief illness, Pauline McBurney passed from this life and into the presence of her Lord and Saviour. Pauline was born into the Bonk family, one of 21 births, on July 8, 1927 in Glenavon, SK. In 1947 she moved to Souris, MB, worked in Jacobson's Photo Studio, met and married her husband David in 1948. They raised four children and were together for 56 years until Dave passed away in 2004. Pauline also worked as a dietary aid and housekeeper in Victoria Park Lodge in Souris. Her many gifts included music, decorating, sewing, cooking and baking, and her home was a warm and welcome place not only for the family she raised, but for countless guests and visitors over the years. She celebrated her family's and friend's accomplishments, milestones, and life events with wholehearted support and enthusiasm and enjoyed the details of even everyday events. Pauline will be remembered for her exceptional kindness and compassion, always reaching out to those in need. She was enormously proud of her children and grandchildren and leaves a beautiful legacy of love, encouragement and prayer. Pauline instilled in her family a deep faith in God, and it's from this shared faith that we gain our strength in this difficult time of saying goodbye. Left to mourn her passing are five siblings, many nieces, nephews and friends, but most especially her children; Adella (Kevin), Al (Linda), Marlene (Gord), Linda (Craig), grandchildren Shane (Tara), Crystal (Jody), Jaylene (Scott), Jodi (Brad), Samara (Todd), Christa (Peter), Ryan (Crystal), Haley (Erich), Sharla (Jon), Spencer, and 17 adorable great- grandchildren. She was predeceased by great- granddaughter Presley. 'A Come & Go Remembrance Tea' will be held in Pauline's honour at her apartment building, 571 St. Anne's Rd. on Saturday, July 5 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Also, a celebration of Pauline's life will be held on Saturday, July 19, in Souris Gospel Chapel, Souris, Manitoba at 2:00 p.m. If friends so desire, donations may be made in her memory to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre of Winnipeg, 650 Broadway Ave. R3C 0X3 or to the Gideon Bible Society. 2


Pauline married David Everet McBURNEY, son of Walter Franklin McBURNEY and Euretta Jean CARDIS. (David Everet McBURNEY was born in 1920 in , , Manitoba, Canada 3 and died in 2004 2.)
