Pauline Dorothy Lesser

BURT —

Pauline Dorothy Lesser of Burt, NY, died on Thursday, June 12, 2014 at Niagara Hospice, Lockport, NY. She was predeceased in 1994 by her husband of 53 years, Raymond A. Lesser; parents, Willis John and Agnes (Stonebreaker) Irwin; sister, Iva Mae Jones; and brother, Robert Irwin. She is survived by sons, John Lesser of Show Low, Arizona, Richard (Luba) Lesser of Fayetteville, NY; sisters, Ruth Master of Fort Pierce, FL, Shirley (Jack) Winter and Sandra Lee Schmitt of Williamsville, NY; grandchildren, Christopher Lesser (Arizona), Jeffery Lesser (Lockport), Christina Tetraul (Lockport), Simon and Willis Lesser (Fayetteville) and several great-grandchildren.
Pauline was a member of the United Methodist Church in Olcott, New York and a former member of Eastern Star. For many years she drove a school bus for the Newfane Central School System with best friends, Emma Kramp, Betty Erck, and Sylvia Padillano. She loved to bake and could be counted on to provide delicious pies for the church bake sales. Local history and national politics were of great interest to her and were topics for lively discussion whenever family visited. Musicals, movies, and music, especially Dixieland, Ragtime and Jazz, were passionate delights in her life and she shared that joy with friends and family alike.
Pauline was a loving and supportive mother, grandmother, and friend. The family wishes to thank the many people who were especially supportive in her final years including Sam Clogston of Olcott, Molly Lalich of Lockport, neighbors Rob and Sue Andreas and Joe Maraglino and Linda Michals of Burt, the wonderful staff at the Lockport Presbyterian Home and the personnel at Niagara Hospice on Sunset Drive. Memorials to Niagara Hospice, 4675 Sunset Drive, Lockport, NY 14094 would be appreciated by the family.
