Pauline May Stahl
Pauline May "Polly" (Hagerman) Stahl, 90, of Watsontown, went to sleep and rest in Jesus, March 11, 2019, at Watsontown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
She was born Nov. 29, 1928, in Watsontown on Thanksgiving Day, a daughter of the late Lee J. and Ada U. (Becher) Hagerman of Anthony Township, Montour County. She was married to Melvin L. Stahl on Dec. 9, 1949. Together they celebrated 69 years of marriage.

She was a 1947 graduate of the former North-Mont High School, Turbotville, and trained in Milton as a certified nursing assistant. While raising a family of five children and assisting with grandchildren, she worked at the former Devitt Home, Allenwood and the former Kramn Nursing Home, Watsontown, where she retired after 35 years. She particularly loved her last two years doing the restorative care. Having a love for running since the days of her youth, she often ran from one nursing room to another. In her earlier years she worked in the Turbotville silk mill and did housekeeping. She had been a member of the California Grange No. 941.

She was caring, selfless and always trying to please others. She was a prayer warrior and always had her family and others in her prayers. She spent many hours on the phone, or visiting, listening to other's needs and giving encouragement. She had the gift of hospitality. She enjoyed reading her Bible and was an active and devoted member of the Milton Seventh-day Adventist Church.
