Pauline Violet Worthylake – 92, of Kentville, Kings County, NS passed away Sunday Oct 9, 2016 at Valley Regional Hospital after a brief illness. Born in London, England on December 15, 1923, she was the daughter of Harry Portsmouth and Violet Butler. At eighteen years of age, she joined the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force where she was in charge of a barrage balloon command. Near the end of WWII, she met her Canadian, Grant Worthylake and followed him to her new life in Canada, crossing on the Isle de France and landing at Pier 21. Pauline’s compassion for others was expressed through her volunteer work with many organizations, including the Lionettes, Hospital Auxilary, Kings Historical Society, and the local food bank. Her love of cooking was the impetus for many family gatherings. A prolific painter, she shared her work with family and friends, and was well-known as the Lupin Lady.
