Pauline R. Waters, 94, formerly of Mount Joy, heard the words, “Well done good and faithful servant,” on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019 at Pleasant View Retirement Community, Manheim.

Born in Florin, she was the daughter of the late Harold W. and Mary M. Sherk Buller. She was the wife of the late Emory L. Waters, who passed away in 1995.

She graduated from East Donegal High School (Maytown) class of 1943. Pauline was a lifetime member of Glossbrenner United Methodist Church, Mount Joy. In 1961 she owned and operated the Princess Ann Beauty Salon in Mount Joy, and also later owned the Mount Joy Twin Kiss. She wrote poetry all her life and was first published in 1980. She also loved to rollerskate, bowl, go to and have yard sales, and win at bingo, especially with her sisters. When she was young, she won several awards for outstanding salesmanship and later went on to sell Avon. She also liked to take bus trips all over the U.S.A. Her husband, Emory, was a lifer in the Navy so she considered herself a lifer too.
