Mary and I became close friends in high school. The Goebel household was my second home back then. My parents were concerned that I spent too much time there. Those lively dinner discussions were eye opening! Thanks Paula and Leo for being my second parents during those critical years. I truely felt like family.
heartfelt sympathy from Shirley Walker neighbor at All Saints.
Nothing but positive memories of Pauline and Leo. Paul was a good friend of my mother's. RIP.

I grew up with Leo and Paula on Thrush Lane. Paula had the most wonderful smile and laugh I will always remember. My deepest sympathy to the family and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Becky (Heberling) Holl
Aunt Pauline was the perfect partner for my Uncle Leo. I so enjoyed being with them at family reunions. I love this family and my 2 uncles, an aunt and numerous cousins. I’m far away, but you guys are forever in my heart. Love to you all.
Pauline's legacy is her wonderful family. She can be so proud of that legacy.
