Pauline Moran

August 31, 1941 — June 22, 2024

Pauline (Smith) Moran, age 82, passed away peacefully on June 22, 2024, surrounded by family. She was born August 31, 1941, in Tazewell, VA to Estell Warren (Roscoe) and Nona B. (Stillwell) Smith. She married Michael G. Moran in April 1975 who proceeded her in death in 2019.

Pauline and her family moved to Ohio in the early 1950’s. Virginia was always home to her, and she treasured special memories growing as a child in the hills there. Pauline worked for Checkmate Boats for many years and was specifically assigned to building their world class speedboats. She also worked at Swan Hose and later in life enjoyed her work at Walmart.

Pauline spent many years as a volunteer for Red Cross and her enjoyment in life was producing a great harvest from her garden, bowling, entertaining and birthdays. Anytime someone walked through her door, there was a pot of coffee waiting and she welcomed anyone to the kitchen table for a meal.

Pauline leaves behind brother, Richard Smith, four children, Theresa C. Auck, David J. Hess, Diana (Jay) Moss and Sheryl (Victor) Moran-Amesquita; twelve grandchildren, Elizabeth A. Lutz (Damon Adams), Joshua C. Auck (Britanny Garnow), Stephan and Ashley (Wheeler) Hess, Daniel and Brianna (Cruz) Hess, Emily R. (Nicholas) Ray, Kristin (Sean) Coppler, Rebekah Hess, Faith A. Amesquita, Dominic Amesquita, Emily G. (Michael) Leong, Jacob and Ellen (Freeborn) Moss, and Eli and Maggie (Ward) Moss; 15 great-grandchildren. Sister-in-law Rose (Allen) Wagner and nieces and nephew.

Predeceased by her husband of 44 years, Michael G. Moran, her parents Roscoe and Nona B. (Stillwell) Smith and sister Vernie Walters.

Pauline is loved by many and will be missed by all. The family would like to exend their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Primrose Assisted Living for their compassionate care and support during the past year.
