    • Pauline Good (Nee Cline)

      Polly Good, of Waterloo, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 4, 2008 at Forest Heights LTC, in her 87th year.
      Beloved mother of Terry, of Toronto, Pat Johnston and her husband Kirk, of Burlington, Doug, of Kitchener, and his friend Karen Weaver of Collingwood, and Reg and his wife Kathy of Kitchener. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Ian, Cam, Rochelle, Rachael and Daniel. Dear sister of Kathryn Eshleman of Greencastle, Pennsylvania.
      Polly is predeceased by her husband Howard, who passed way in 1996. A native of Virginia, Polly grew up in the beautiful Shenendoah Valley. She graduated from Goshen College with a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics, then taught Home Economics and Biology in Northern Michigan. At Goshen College she met Howard Good of St. Jacob's. They were married, and Polly, a "southern belle", moved to the cold north with Howard to Preston. She was sensitive to colour, texture and aesthetics in her surroundings. Her flair for decorating and interest in antiques led to purchasing antiques for the Stone Crock in St. Jacob's and the design of her beloved fan-back chairs which she had built by an old-order Mennonite. She also designed quilts, chair mats and hooked rugs resembling old favourites. Polly volunteered at Parkwood Home for many years. A board member of Eastwood Community Homes since its inception, she also undertook various decorating projects at Eastwood, including the planning of the furnishings of the dining room. She maintained her interest in decorating and aesthetics until the very end, directing the placement of artwork she collected over years of travel, on the walls of her new room at the Sunshine Centre, and again a week ago when she moved into Forest Heights LTC. A lover of classical music, opera and drama, she attended events locally, at Stratford, Blythe and the Shaw Festival as well as on her travels with Howard. A lifelong lover of nature, she enjoyed gardens, butterflies and birds on adventurous travels throughout the world, seeking out places not yet discovered by most tourists. After moving to the Sunshine Centre, she enjoyed nature from her exquisitely decorated room facing the Fountain Courtyard, enjoying her precious garden sculpture surrounded by flowers, birds and visiting ducks.
      Special thanks to the staff at the Sunshine Centre, for their friendship and caring for Polly, also the 5th Floor of St Mary's Hospital and at Forest Heights. A memorial service to celebrate Polly's life will be held at 2: 30 p.m. on Friday, August 22, 2008 at Rockway Mennonite Church, 32 Weber St. W., Kitchener. In lieu of flowers, donations to the House of Friendship or M.E.D.A. would be appreciated by the family and may be arranged by contacting the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home at 519-745-8445 or www.erbgood.com
