Obituary for Pauline Maria Ferrell (Benavidez)

Pauline was a kind-hearted woman with a fighting spirit. She loved to laugh and smile, and spend her days surrounded by family. The love for her husband Joe of 28 years, and her son Little Joe was her most precious gifts. The bond she had with her son reflected who she was; she’d love to listen to our stories, wipe away our tears, she could wrap her arms around you and understand, and you could feel the love she had for you. Pauline touched many hearts here on Earth, and her spirit is boundless and everlasting.

Through the years Pauline had a joy for going Jeep trail-riding, and in the midst of her final days she was able to live out that joy.

“I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of seriousness or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. ALL is well.”
