SPRAGUE- Pauline Augusta, 99, of Liverpool, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 20th, 2018, at South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater, surrounded by the love of her two children and their spouses.
Pauline was born on Cape Negro Island, she was a daughter of the late Harold and Evelyn (Doane) Newell.
Pauline lived a long and remarkably healthy life, free of many of the chronic ailments that plague the elderly. She eagerly “studied” the newspaper from cover to cover every day and then checked back through it again to be sure she did not miss anything. She walked to town daily until her 90’s and was even known to babysit the great grandchildren when called upon. Pauline lived in her own home until her 96th year. She excelled at making fishcakes and stew. Our memory banks are full from the lifetime of this tiny, yet strong, lady. Our hearts always felt her love for her family and she will be missed.
She is survived by her son Phillip (Bonnie) and daughter Jane (Esmar) Hansen, both of Liverpool, grandchildren Toby (Lori) of Beach Meadows, Jody (Maime) Colp of Lumberton, North Carolina, Shannon Sprague and Candace Sprague-Whynot (Brad), both of Liverpool, Melanie (Neil) Raymond of Miramichi, NB. Also 13 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild as well as her siblings Violet Eisnor, Jackie Newell and David Newell.
Pauline was predeceased by her loving husband, Cyril Wesley Sprague in 1970 and siblings Lindsey, Clifford, Albert, Kenneth, Lloyd, Beatrice, Ethel, Marie, Ena, Evelyn and Muriel. Half brother Foreman and son-in-law Paris Colp.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 23, 2018, from 7 until 9 p.m. and funeral service will be held Friday, August 24, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. both in Chandlers’ Funeral Chapel, Liverpool.
