My thoughts and prayers are with the Oehrlein family. I fondly remember her as our neighbor when my folks (Bill & Harriet) built a house across the street in 1966. May God give you comfort and peace.

Pauly was my sister, my mentor, my friend and my substitute mom after our mother died. She was so kind and thoughtful to me and to my family. My children always thought of her as the cool Aunt , who bought them the best of gifts. Usually the stuff their mom wouldn't buy and they always looked forward to birthday and Christmas. She had a wonderful open heart and welcomed everyone that became part of our family. She was well read and a good business woman. I will miss her for the rest of my life
