Pauline was born on March 19, 1938 in Preston, Idaho, to Weldon and Veleta Dalley Nash. She graduated from Preston High School in 1956. She attended Idaho State College for two years, graduating with an Associate Degree in Secretarial Science, class of 1958.

Mike and Pauline spent their first few years together moving around the country during Mike’s military service. They eventually settled in Pocatello, Idaho, where they lived for more than 40 years.

She will be remembered for her great faith in Jesus Christ and the service she gave to those around her. She served in many callings in the LDS church, including Primary, Young Women and Relief Society. She and her husband served together in the Idaho Falls temple for 11 years. She was a remarkable visiting teacher and enjoyed directing the ward choir. She was a truly special lady who was loved by all who knew her.

Family was everything to Pauline. She doted on her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, who all looked to her as an example of Christlike love.

Pauline is survived by her husband, two children, four grandchildren, four great grandchildren, two brothers, Stuart D. Nash and Boyd D. Nash, and two sisters, Judith Nash and Marie Nash Mayes. She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, Nolan D. Nash.
