Pauline Golding

November 15, 2018

Pauline Golding, 86, formerly of Kankakee, passed to eternal life Nov. 7, 2018.

She was born June 27, 1932, in Louisville, Ky., the fifth of eight children to Paul and Daisy Ford. Pauline met the love of her life, Robert “Bob” Golding, when he was stationed at Fort Knox, Ky. They were married Nov. 28, 1952. They were blessed with 42 wonderful years together.

Surviving are a daughter, Susan (Vince) Micha; son-in-law, John O’Lena; daughter-in-law, Becky Golding; grandchildren, Katelyn Golding (Joe DiMaggio), Ryan (Jenn) Golding, Evan, Sara and Luke O’Lena, Philip (Kim), Ben (Micaela), Paul and Nathan Micha and Tracy (Adam) McDaniels; and great-grandchildren, Bella and Joseph DiMaggio, Marabelle and Noralee, Marlin and Clyde McDaniels.

Preceding her in death were her husband; children, Mike and Tom Golding, Karen O’Lena; and grandson, Justin Micha.

In 2015, Pauline moved to Wisconsin to be closer to her daughter; she enjoyed spending time with family, music in the park and becoming a “Packer” fan.

The family would like to thank Rosewood Manor, in Grafton, Wis., for taking such good care of her and the friends she made while living there.

Visitation will be from 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, until the noon memorial service, both at Schreffler Funeral Homes, Bourbonnais Chapel.

Memorials may be made to St. Paul Lutheran School Music Program in Grafton, Wis.
