GLENS FALLS - Pauline L. Sexton, 87, passed away on Monday, April 23, 2012 at the Fletcher Allen Healthcare Center in Burlington, Vermont, surrounded by her loving family. Pauline had been admitted on Monday, April 16, after a fall at the United Helpers Nursing Home in Canton, NY where she had been a resident since December 2010.
Pauline was born in Glens Falls, NY on December 10, 1924, daughter of Fred C. Logan and Mildred (Dietz) Logan. She lived in Glens Falls for 85 years until moving to Potsdam in April of 2010 where she lived with her son, Michael Sexton and his wife, Janice. She is survived by both of them and her beloved grandchildren, Michele Seiler, and her husband, Dr. Michael Seiler, of Chicago, Illinois, and John Sexton of Ithaca, NY. Pauline is also survived by her very dear friend, whom she considered to be her daughter, Sharon Oakes of Kingston, New Hampshire, as well as several dear nieces, nephews and cousins. A daughter, Diane Elizabeth Sexton, predeceased her in 1991, and her ex-husband and friend, Hollis Sexton died in 2006.
Pauline was blessed throughout her life with many wonderful friends and neighbors from the Glens Falls area who not only helped to care for her when her family could not be there but looked after her when she was in need and provided her with company and companionship. She loved her home and the City of Glens Falls. In later years she enjoyed reading, evening visits with her son, going out for the occasional car ride and nap, and the company of the family pets brought to visit her. She rarely complained except to say it was no fun getting old. She was quick with a smile and thankful for every day and every thing anyone did for her and never failed to say so.
A memorial service will take place Saturday, April 28, at 11 a.m. at Bay Road Presbyterian Church, 1167 Bay Road, Lake George, with the Rev. Chris Garrison, pastor, officiating.
Burial will follow at Pine View Cemetery, Quaker Rd., Queensbury.
