I'm not sure if you heard, but Pauline Young died recently. She was my neighbor, friend and a long time resident of Bloomingdale. She has a wonderful family who has been helping to care for her for the few years.
She lived in Bloomingdale since at least the early 60's or 50's and she used to tell me about the neighborhood back then. Pauline and her family were interviewed for the Bloomingdale oral history project. I was out of town last week and was unable to attend her funeral.
She was a delightful, happy person and I always enjoyed her company, her stories and her positive outlook on life. I will miss her!
