Pauline M. Dulieu - Pawtucket

Pauline M. (Damiani) Dulieu, 76, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, after a long battle with Ovarian Cancer.

She was the beloved wife of George J. Dulieu for 58 years. A lifelong resident of Pawtucket, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Assuntina (Paoli) Damiani.

Besides her loving husband, Pauline was the devoted mother of her four children, Susan McCreary and her husband Michael of Northampton, Mass., Mark Dulieu and his wife Barbara of Warwick, Greg Dulieu and his wife Linda of Cranston and Scott Dulieu and his wife Karen of Cumberland. She was the proud grandmother of Courtney Palmisciano, Captain Benjamin Dulieu of the U.S. Marine Corps and his wife Sarah. She was also the proud grandmother of Lauren, Danielle, Sam, Jaryd and Jordan Dulieu, Rachel and Austin McCreary; great-grandmother of Chloe Palmisciano, Piper Dulieu; and step-grandchildren Douglas Rosenberg and Abby Burns.

Pauline enjoyed and lived her life to the fullest with her husband and entire, very close-knit family. She was very proud of each and every one of them. They were her life! She was the dear sister of Josephine Lama and her late husband Frank of Pawtucket, Robert Damiani and his wife Jane of Seekonk, Mass., Carol Dick and her husband Robert of Coventry; and cousin of Maryann Gagnon and her husband Moe of Pawtucket.

Pauline was predeceased by her sister Doris Proulx and her husband Lionel of Somerset, Mass., Lena Taylor and her husband Clyde of Danvers, Mass., and infant brother, Samuel Damiani. She leaves many nieces, nephews and very close friends.

Pauline enjoyed spending summers on Cape Cod with her family and very close friends.

A communicant of Blessed Pope John Paul II Parish (formerly St. Cecilia Church), Pauline was an active member having taught CCD and Scouting for many years and was an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion in addition to other services in her parish throughout the years.

Until her illness she was a secretary for the Pawtucket School Department, previously having worked 22 years as a secretary for Pied Piper/The Children’s Center in Pawtucket.

Pauline was most grateful and appreciative to her loving husband, her entire family and all those who prayed or helped her in any way during her illness. They were always remembered in her daily prayers.
