Pauline Adele Taylor, 89, of Masontown, WV, passed away Sunday, May 26, 2024, at Ruby Memorial Hospital with family by her side. She was born February 12, 1935, a daughter of the late John Nelson Nuce and Jessie (Nicholson) Nuce. Pauline was a graduate of Kingwood High School in 1953.

Later in life she worked as a CNA and at the Plaza Café in Reedsville. Pauline was the last of siblings. Her family was her life, pride, and joy. Her home was the neighborhood hangout with all being welcomed. No one ever left with an empty belly. Pauline enjoyed watching and rewatching old movies, working on puzzles, camping, baking for her family, and putting all types of jelly on her morning toast.
