PAULINE "POLLY" PAVLICK Obituary
PAULINE "POLLY" PAVLICK April 28, 1921 - October 21, 2018 Pauline was born in Detroit, Mich., the second youngest in a family of six children. She joined the Navy WAVES in 1944 and served from 1944-46 in the Washington, D.C. area as a company clerk. She prided herself on being precise so that sailors would have accurate records. Pauline moved to Pahrump in 2010 at the age of 89 with her niece, Lili, so both could be near Lili's sister, Betty and her husband. Tired of the Michigan weather, it was a welcomed change. Polly never sought the limelight, but she (the oldest female WWII veteran in Southern Nevada) was privileged to receive a flag that flew over the U.S. Capitol in 2013, arranged by Senator Heller, and a Quilt of Valor in 2015. Her picture is one of those that hangs on Calvada Boulevard. Our family treasures her stories. When people thanked Polly for her service, she replied, "It was nothing special." But, lately she had found just the right words, "It was an honor." Pauline was preceded in death by her parents, Mamie and Floyd Pavlick and her siblings. She is survived by many nephews and nieces. Polly's greatest love was the one she had for Jesus and her church, Our Lady of the Valley. Her smile will be missed by all who knew her. A celebration of her life will be held at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church on Gamebird Road at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 9, 2018. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be given to the Fischer House for families of veterans at the North Las Vegas Veterans Hospital, to Nathan Adelson Hospice, or to a local food bank.
