Pauline was born on October 14, 1942, in New London, Connecticut, to the late Peter and Lena Piascik. If you knew Pauline, you knew that her faith was the foundation of her life. Her love for the Lord was strong and it was that dedication and commitment that directed her every step. Pauline was actively involved at First Presbyterian Church in Morehead City where she served in numerous capacities including as a deacon, working in the Daycare, as well as in the Pre-School. She was always willing to help and give to others, no matter the sacrifice. One of the ministries she enjoyed the most was the Hands of Prayer Group which combined her talent for knitting with the opportunity to bless others with special shawls, crosses, or other intricate items they created.

Although Pauline had to end her schooling early to care for her mother, she was always a straight-A student who excelled in the classroom and with her studies. She went on to extend her love for learning to numerous children over the years. Not only was she a blessing to the children through her Church but she also loved working as a teacher’s assistant with the Carteret County School System as well as driving school buses in our county. Her calming presence, knowledge and guiding hand impacted so many.

In 1963, Pauline married the love of her life, Gerald, they were blessed with 42 years together before his passing. Cooking for her family gave her great fulfillment and joy. She always had dinner on the table and ready at 5 p.m. sharp each day for Gerald. But of course, nothing gave her as much happiness as spending time with her grandchildren, who were the apple of her eye.

She is survived by her daughters, Cheryl Ann Snipes of Columbia, SC and Jill Johnson and husband Clay of Wake Forest; sons, David Snipes of Apex and Joey Snipes and wife Nancy of Cary; sister, Carlene Hawes of Charleston, SC; 13 grandchildren; and 1 great-granddaughter.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband in 2006, Gerald Snipes; son, Jerry Allen Snipes; sister, Theresa Yakabowski; brothers, Peter Paul Piascik Jr. and Frank Piascik; and granddaughter, Madeline Snipes.
