Pauline M. Underhill

Pauline M. Underhill, 74, died Feb. 19, 2019 at her West Bend residence.

She was born May 12, 1944, in Sheboygan, to Norbert and Mary Felix Heiting. The family moved to Port Washington when she was a child, where she attended local schools. While working at Globe Union Battery Plant in Milwaukee, she met Donald Underhill. They were married on Dec. 21, 1974.

She worked various jobs before becoming the Director of Christian Formation at St. Francis Borgia Catholic Church in Cedarburg. The couple lived in Cedarburg and Port Washington, before retiring to Rhinelander in 2000. Her husband Donald preceded her in death June 28, 2013.

Pauline was kind and thoughtful, helped out whenever she could, and after retiring served as a chaplain at the Rhinelander hospital. Pauline loved being "up North" and enjoyed nature, playing golf and biking. In late 2018 she moved to West Bend to be closer to family.

She is survived by her daughter Teresa (Kurt) Hanson of Portland, Ore., her granddaughter Emily and her siblings John (JoAnne) Heiting of Columbia, S.C., Mary Ann Cleary of West Bend, Merin Heiting of Hartford, Gerard Heiting of Milwaukee, and Marilyn (Dennis) Duffy of Elkhart Lake. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

The Reverend Pat Heppe celebrated a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30 a.m., Monday, Feb. 25, 2019 at Holy Angels Church, 138 N. 8th Ave., West Bend, WI 53095. Visitation was held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday prior to the service at church. Interment was at St. Mary's Cemetery, Port Washington.

Oh dear: I just received the news about Pauline's passing: she was a wonderful, caring, happy person that cared deeply for all. She will be greatly missed by all. She was a dear friend and very strong-willed with her illness. Bless her and her family: she's in a better place now! I know that she will rest in peace.

I was so sorry to hear of Pauline's passing. She was a very loving and kind person and I will miss golfing and talking to her. I know she is in a better place and her suffering is over with now. My sympathy to all of her family.
