On Thursday, March 5th God called His servant home from labor to reward while a resident for a short time at GrayBriar Nursing Rehabilitation Center. Today we celebrate the life of Mrs. Pauline Mobley Douglas, servant of the Lord, wife, sister, aunt, great aunt, and friend.
Pauline was born on July 1, 1928 in High Point NC to the late Andrew and Daisy Johnson Mobley. She attended public schools and graduated from William Penn High School in 1948. She grew up in High Point but later moved to Thomasville, NC in July 1961. Pauline was married to her love, Ealy Douglas for 41 years.
Mrs. Douglas was of the Methodist faith and a lifetime member of St. Stephen AME Zion Church. As a faithful member she served on the Life Members Council and the Women’s Home and Overseas Missionary Society. Her proudest moments were dressing the communion table as a Deaconess; where she would not allow a pleat or fold to be out of place. In the community, she belonged to the Burns Hill Community Sympathy Club. She financially supported the following charities: St. Jude Children Hospital, North Carolina State Troopers, Easter seals, American Heart Association and the Boys and Girls Club of Boys Town. Her hobbies included photography and being photographed. She loved with all her heart both children and animals and took great pleasure in loving and caring for them.
