Pauline Bartch

December 30, 1920 – January 9, 2019
Our beloved Pauline passed away peacefully just one week after celebrating her 98th birthday.

Pauline lived a quiet, gentle life filled with gardening, nature, needlework, reading and kitchen table visits with friends and family.

Pauline was born in Rama SK, the youngest of five children in the Koturbash family. She eventually married George, settled in Preeceville SK and welcomed two sons. In the early 1950’s, the family migrated west to Radium Hot Springs-settling in Dry Gulch. George and Pauline moved to Invermere and then, after his death in 2006, Pauline moved to Columbia Garden Village. As her needs increased, Ivy House became her home.

We thank Golden Life staff for their gracious care and friendship over thirteen years. Thank you also to Dr. Maria Dibb for years of care.

Pauline will be forever loved and missed by sons Alan (Deb), David (Karen), grandchildren Nathan and Jessie, great grandchildren, Caitlin and Hailey, and by her extended family.
