Taft, Bonnie, Jason and family, condolences for your loss. Pauline was a well loved neighbor on old Janwood and later as Paulene had the opportunity to work with her at Sears after we were married and living in Farmers Branch. No doubt she will be missed, but with the hope of the resurrection and return of Christ to reunite us in heaven. May God bless and comfort you all in your bereavement!

Pauline was the second youngest sister of my late mother, Isobel know in the family as Bell. They both adored each other. I am so sad that I will never see her smiling face again, or chat with her as we used to do when I would visit Dallas, or she would visit Scotland to visit with my mother. The last time was when my mother was terminally ill. There was so much trust in Pauline and her kind husband my Uncle Taft that I went to live with them in 1967, and get a nice job. May God bless Aunt Pauline and uncle Taft and the extended Sickles family. You will forever be in my heart.

Sorry to learn of your loss. Mrs. Sickles was an incredibly loving presence to a legion of Boy Scouts. We were blessed to have her.
