Pauline Beresford Gold (nee Thomas)

Pauline passed away peacefully in Cranbrook, BC at the age of 92 after living a life devoted to her family and friends. Pauline was born in Calgary, AB and moved to Kimberley as a young girl. She gathered special friends as she followed her husband from Kimberley to Tulsequah, HB Mine, Riondel, Port McNeill, Trail, Elkford, and Cranbrook, always keeping the philosophy to try her best every day, regardless of life’s hurdles. She took pride in making the most of the places she lived at by staying healthy, maintaining her home and garden. Her greatest joy of all was her family, whom she loved to talk about with her friends, and wonderful caregivers at Joseph Creek. She enjoyed staying current with the news and the changing events of the world. Occasions with family and friends were deeply treasured and talked about for years. She loved to keep her family current, and would take any opportunity to have fun, tell stories, and fill the room with laughter.

She is survived by her children: Greg (June) Gold, Jeff (Joan) Gold, Jill (Greg) Lee, Rob (Lisa) Gold; eleven grandchildren: Christy, Ross, Ryan, Nicole, Jenny, Scott, Erin, Holly, Lorraine, David, and Thomas; and ten great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband of 69 years David Gold, their daughter Diana Lee Gold, and all of her siblings: Thelma Goosney, Vivian Thomas, Eileen Donald, and Norman Thomas.

Gone but not forgotten. An inspiration to us all!

A memorial service for Pauline will be held on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at the All Saints Anglican Church in Kimberley at 3:00 pm.
