Pauline Dowden passed away peacefully on March 28, 2023, at The Fountain, where she had been a resident and surrounded by friends for the past 8 months.
Pauline was born November 20, 1932, the daughter of McCrea Sr. and Margaret Kunkle. She was preceded in death by James Dowden, her husband of 38 years, and by her brother McCrea Kunkle, Jr. She is survived by her many loving nieces and nephews, and a loving sister-in-law.
Pauline was a life-long resident of the Homer City area and was a member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church. She retired from Robert Shaw Company in Indiana, after which she spent her days as a homemaker. Pauline will be remembered for her cheery personality and smile that would light up every room. She had a kind and loving soul, and everyone knew we were all her buddy.
