Born on March 16, 1920, Pauline was the daughter of the late John and Agnes Lehman Chickey. An active member of the former St. Stanislaus Roman Catholic Church in Old Forge, now Prince of Peace Parish, she served as President of the Church’s Altar and Rosary Society. She often quilted for the church and also worked both church and fire company picnics. Her favorite pastime was crocheting.

She was also preceded in death by brothers, Leo, Chester and John Chickey; sisters, Helen Augustitus and Rose Slucinsky; and her first husband, Leo Rychleski, killed in battle on D-Day and buried in Normandy, France.
Her family wishes to acknowledge the staffs of both Riverside Nursing and Compassionate Care Hospice for their collective kindness and care.
