Pauline Plante


Here’s an understatement: she was feisty. Pauline could bowl a 150 and loved just about every professional wrestler. Her obsession may have been Dancing with the Stars: she kept a notebook with the whole season’s scores. She was quiet during Phillies games but made it clear she was no Ryan Howard fan. Her T.V. was tuned to channel 6: the View, the Chew and the News. Alexis found her at every dance recital; she loved her million kisses from Marcus. Pauline’s London Broil had lots of butter and her pineapple upside down cake made you beg for more. You’d see her foot tapping if you put on some country. Come every Sport’s Night Pauline rooted for Maroon.

Like all great romances, Pauline’s started at a wrestling match. She and the late Nicholas shared 61 years of marriage and were blessed by the late Francine, the late Diane (John), and the late Dennis, 5 grandkids: Michael, Daniel, Sue, Kristy (Shaun) and Ambrae; and 6 great grandkids. She is survived by many nieces and nephews.

Come celebrate 88 great years Sunday 6-8 pm and Monday 9-10 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside, NJ. Mass of Christian Burial 10:30 at Corpus Christi Church, Willingboro. Interment Odd Fellows Cemetery, Burlington. In lieu of flowers donations to Samaritan Hospice 5 Eves Drive, Suite 300, Marlton NJ 08053 will be appreciated.

    Such a wonderful woman with her grin … Always made you smile. So many memories for me, to sheppards pie or the little Bangor between her and Nick. The best thing was knowing her and the family… The last time I saw her I got a kiss on the cheek and I told her she better make sure she takes care of herself. My heart is with the family.
