PAULINE R PEREZ, 88, of Fort Wayne, died Tuesday, March 06, 2018, at Bethlehem Woods Nursing Home, Fort Wayne, IN. Born in San Antonio, Texas. She was a resident of Fort Wayne since 1952. Pauline had various jobs, but her true passion was her family and loved ones. In a time when it became common for women to leave the home for opportunities, Pauline recognized the value of nurturing the core of the family.
Survivors include daughter, Paula Jo Perez; grandson, Dustin (Samantha) Fitzgerald; great-granddaughters, Hayden, Felicity and Athena. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph L. Perez and son, Alex A. Perez.
In accordance with Pauline's wishes, there will not be a service. Her dignity rested with a refusal to be burdensome. Though she may not have wanted loved ones to travel from far in tribute, we request a break from traditional memorial precedent with an idea. Had you wished to attend a service, honoring Pauline, please consider this alternative? Her Yoda-like wisdom and mentoring brought many to her table. That is where she imparted her knowledge and compassion. In her honor, we ask that you reserve time this week for the living rather than the departed. In true Pauline fashion, sit with someone, have coffee with them and let them know they matter to you.
Arrangements by D.O. McComb & Sons Covington Knolls Funeral Home, 8325 Covington Road. Private family interment.
