Pauline M. Mills, 96, passed away peacefully on September 12, 2022, at the Willows at Willard. She was born on February 10, 1926, in Clarksfield, Ohio, to the late Alice Edna (Martin) and Frank Schaffer. Pauline spent most of her life in Greenwich, Ohio.
An avid Cleveland Indians (and recently Guardians) fan, she was often affectionately referred to as “Grandma Pauline” by many, even at times, to people who were totally unrelated to her. She enjoyed playing BINGO at the Willows, and cherished her grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren.
She is survived by her son, Michael (Christine) Mills, of Greenwich; her sister, Betty Young, of New London; son in-law, Clifford Stumbo of Shiloh; 10 grandchildren; several great grandchildren and multiple great-great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Harold R. Mills, in 1988; son, Harold L. “Butch” Mills, in 2010, daughter, Alice Stumbo, in 2015, and several siblings.
A visitation will be held on Sunday, September 18, 2022, from 4-6 p.m. at Eastman Funeral Home, Greenwich, where a funeral service will be held the following day, on Monday, September 19, 2022, beginning at 11 a.m., with burial to follow in Greenwich Greenlawn Cemetery. Pauline loved the staff at the Willows at Willard, and the family would like to express their gratitude for their years of care and friendship.
