Pauline is also mourned by a wide circle of the Duffy and Gallagher families and friends in Ireland. Pauline was in her youth an accomplished net-ball and camogie player and concluded her secondary schooling entirely in Gaelic, finishing as head girl at the Loretto Abbey Girls’ School of Dublin, Ireland. She then studied at University College, Dublin, graduating with a medical degree in 1955. She practiced medicine in the specialized field of public health, first in Galway, Ireland and later in St. John’s, until she “retired” to raise her 7 children. Pauline was a most literate, gracious and kind lady who possessed an extraordinary appetite for life and a marvelous sense of humour.
