A wife, mother, grandmother and beloved friend, Pauline G. (Dubois) Dufresne, 75, a longtime resident of Woonsocket died suddenly, due to medical complications, at Rhode Island Hospital on September 21, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.

Born August 15, 1946, she was the beloved daughter of Henry and Olivette (Barras) Dubois. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 56 years, James Dufresne, and their two beautiful daughters Kim Dufresne Furness of Somerset MA and Karyn Dufresne of Manville RI. Pauline is also survived by her two sisters, Jeanne Cooper of Woonsocket and Suzanne Poulin of Cumberland. She is also survived by her four beloved granddaughters, Ashly Dufresne of Woonsocket, Alexis Manter of Fall River, Sydney Dufresne and Karaline Furness of Somerset.

Pauline was a Rhode Islander her whole life. She graduated from St. Clare High School before completing a few classes at Bryant College. She was a hard worker and worked as an accountant for over 30 years at Teknor Apex before retiring.

Pauline was always a lot of fun, she was very active and really enjoyed her family and friends. She loved going to her granddaughter’s softball games, was very involved with her former students, and enjoyed following her former classmates. She was cultured, had a lovely smile, and was a curious and adventurous person with a great personality. She loved to travel with her family and was always ready to travel anywhere and experience anything. Pauline loved being by the ocean, especially Narragansett Beach. She also enjoyed reading, playing BINGO at Foxwoods, listening to Elvis and enjoying Margaritas. His joy, his passion and his presence will be truly missed.

She was very excited and was looking forward to her first great-granddaughter due in October.

Services for Pauline will be private.

Do not hesitate to leave your condolences to the family.
