Pauline Joyce Smiley of Winslow died on Tuesday, November 12, 2013. Pauline was the daughter of Milton P. and Florence Norton Smiley. She was born and raised in Winslow, and graduated from Winslow High School in 1945. She attended Nasson College. Using her business training, she worked for New England Telephone and Telegraph Company as a cashier for thirty-seven years, retiring in 1985. Through the telephone company, she was an active member of the Telephone Pioneers, serving both as president and vice-president. In her retirement years, she was active in the Telephone Pioneers Retired Club. This service organization reached out to communities offering helpful support. From an early age Pauline reveled in the freedom of driving an automobile. Working on the family farm, she would drive the Smiley's milk truck to make deliveries around the lake areas in the summer. Later in life she used her driving skill to help transport family members to appointments and events, never tiring of providing this aide to others. She also used her driving prowess to support the community, delivering Meals on Wheels for years. Pauline loved her home in Maine. She took any opportunity she could to travel to her favorite spots on the coast to see the sights and enjoy lunch. Often these trips included bringing her Mother, Florence Smiley, along, and later included her sisters and brother as well. Pauline took pride in participating in her community. For years she knit mittens for local children in need. In addition to her work with Meals on Wheels, she was an active member of the Winslow Congregational Church, U.C.C. and the Fort Halifax Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution for over 50 years. Pauline was an integral part of her extended family. She treasured supporting her great nieces and nephews in their sporting events and artistic performances. Whenever she was able she sought ways to support her family whether through baking them treats, letting young ones play with her phone booth necklace with the operable door, or simply by providing that simple, powerful smile while holding your hand tightly. Pauline was a 'Mainer' in the truest sense, charming, stoic, determined, and kind. When you spent time with her, you were always better for it. Her family will forever benefit from her example of unconditional love and perseverance. Pauline was predeceased by her parents, three sisters- Virginia Gordon, Priscilla McKallip, and Nancy Smiley, three brother-in-laws, one sister-in-law, one niece, and three nephews. Surviving her are siblings F. Richard Smiley and Barbara Healy, numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, November 16, 2013 at the Winslow Congregational Church, 12 Lithgow Street, Winslow.
