January 25, 1934 - March 18, 2021
It is with a heavy heart I must share that my beloved mother, Pauline Leonardis Garaffa passed away Thursday evening. She was such a special person and the woman who helped shape me into who I am today. She had the incredible gift of making everyone around her feel special. When speaking with her, you always felt as if you were the center of the universe. And me, having the gift of being her daughter, felt this more than anyone can ever imagine. At all times, she was singularly devoted to her family. No matter how much time had passed, she stayed up to date on the lives of her children, grandchildren, and more recently, her great grandchildren. In her younger years, she was involved with the Rosary Society and even dabbled a little in local politics. She participated in small group bible studies throughout the years as well. Through the years, her faith remained a cornerstone in her life and gave her great comfort. She was born on January 25th, 1934 and met my father, Frank in the early 1950’s. They were married on Valentine’s Day in 1954 and shared a wonderful life together for 62 years until his passing in 2016. Their happiest times were spending time with family. Pauline is survived by her two children Frank, Kathy Jacoutot and her son-in-law Mike. She had five grandchildren, Nicholas and Steven, sons of Frank and Michael Jr.(Carly Jacoutot), Bryan and Kaitlyn, children of Kathy and Mike Jacoutot and three great grandchildren, Emily, Ben, and William Jacoutot. She is pre-deceased by her husband Frank Garaffa, her parents, Jenny and Silo Leonardis and her siblings, James, Josephine Parascando and Salvatore Leonardis.
