OKE, Pauline Charlene Edna (nee Jackson)

Pauline passed away peacefully at Huntsville District Memorial Hospital surrounded with her four children and grandchildren at her side.  Pauline is survived by her children, Terry (Susanne) Hall, Garry (Victoria) Hall, Larry (Marion) Hall and Deborah Hall.  Pauline is also survived by 7 grandchildren Terra, Jason, Joshua, Andrew, Blake, Aaron and Megan and 8 great-grandchildren, Macayla, Hayden, Emma-Marie, Brandon, Alexander, Beth, Amelia, and our newest, Barrett.  Also, Pauline has 2 great-great-grandchildren Lillianna and Scarlett.

Pauline was a stay at home mother for several years while her late husband John Beverly Hall ran a fuel oil business.  Later on in life, Pauline became an operator attendant at Eaton's followed by being a switchboard operator at Sayvette's.  Pauline helped run the families summer camp-ground at Pleasure Bay Resort, where she enjoyed spending her summers meeting new people.  Later in life, Pauline was remarried to Maurice Oke (pre-deceased) where they moved out of Richmond Hill and bought a cottage on Lake Simcoe, In 1991 Pauline and Maurice bought the family cottage (home) on Pleasure Bay Road where they had planned their retirement.  Not too long after they moved to Pleasure Bay, Pauline's husband Maurice passed away.  Pauline stayed on and was surrounded by her family to help her through the years.  When it was time for Pauline to move off the lake which, was a difficult choice, Pauline moved to a condo in Huntsville to make access to facilities easier.  Pauline later moved to Muskoka Traditions Retirement Residence.

In Pauline's younger years, she enjoyed traveling, camping, fishing and getting together with friends.  Pauline enjoyed playing cards and belonged to the Lakeview Seniors Club in Dwight where she helped run Euchre and Bid Euchre.  Pauline also started up a Rama Bus group that would go to Rama once a month and had a few laughs and jokes on the way and even perhaps some days Pauline would come home with some winnings.  Every Sunday, Pauline enjoyed her family visits with her kids, grandkids and friends sitting down at the lake having picnic's, a couple of drinks and share stories and lots of laughs - these are days she especially looked forward to each week.

In keeping with Pauline's wishes, cremation has taken place.  A private celebration of life will follow at a later date.  As an expression of sympathy memorial donations can be made to the Breast Cancer Society or CNIB.
