Dear Cooley family, I'm so saddened to hear of Pauline's passing. I was a teacher at Dale Street when your mom (wife) was our secretary. She was such a good person and always there to help us all. We always said it was Pauline who actually ran the school! I hope you are comforted by all the love people felt for Pauline. Any loss is a hard one. May your memories bring you lots of comfort.

Dear Susan,
My thoughts and prayers go you, your Dad, your sister and your families. I am sorry that I never met your Mom, but I always heard wonderful compliments about her. May the many happy memories that you will always treasure, help you during this very sad time in your life. With my sincere sympathy.

Bill, Susan and Laurie,
I am saddened by the loss of your wife and mom. I worked with your mom in the Medfield schools and had you both as students as well. You are her legacy of love and strength of character. Pauline was a ray of sunshine every day- and I always enjoyed our conversations when we met during the school day.
Stay strong for each other and know you are comforted by the Medfield community.
Mrs. Loretta Porter Fahey

Uncle.Bill, Susan, Laurie and Family, I am so sorry for Aunt Pauline's passing! She was a great person! I'm so happy I talked to her a couple of months ago! I remember babysitting over your house on South St., I used to hang out with her and Uncle Bill the next day and spend the weekend because I was having so much fun! We'd eat frozen Charleston chews and all kinds of snacks! We always thought you were the rich ones in the family!(because of all the snacks)! Auntie had a way to make you laugh! I will miss her so .much! I have so many wonderful memories of her! Love you all!
