Pauline Delzer passed away in her apartment on Monday, June 7, 2021. She was determined to live out her life at her Crescent Manor apartment and God continued to find a way to bless her with this prayer. We imagine God took her home suddenly as she was sitting in her recliner after eating breakfast, reading her bible and “Our Daily Bread,” gazing out her window at the busyness of the squirrels, birds and other things of nature then deciding to take her usual nap.

Funeral services will be held 10 a.m. Monday, June 14 at Parkway Funeral Service, 2330 Tyler Pkwy, Bismarck. Visitation will begin one-hour prior at the funeral home.

Burial will be held at Venturia Cemetery. 

Pauline was born in Venturia on November 21, 1927. She often talked about growing up there and had many fond memories. When Pauline lived in Venturia, it was a thriving town with  many residents. Pauline could tell us, going house by house, the names of each person who lived in each house.  Throughout her lifetime, Pauline had the gift of remembering names of people and all of their family members, maiden names, where they lived and so many details of their lives. She was the go-to person if we needed details for she held the answers in her fantastic memory! 

Pauline was sixteen years old when she became employed as a salesclerk at one of  Venturia’s grocery stores. She loved being a salesclerk! That experience turned into a life-long career even after moving to Bismarck with her parents and siblings. Pauline often talked about imagining that she owned the store and in doing so she was able to take on whatever challenges that came her way.  

Bismarck Baptist Church had always been Pauline’s second home since she moved to Bismarck so many years ago. Drawing close to God and reading the bible was not a small thing. When Pauline talked with God, this fragile and loving lady became a mighty and powerful prayer warrior! Her family knew she intensely prayed for them every day as she often prayed for others and the happenings of this world.  

Pauline had several hobbies. She  loved to cross stitch and made numerous quilts for her family. She also enjoyed reading approximately 10 books every two weeks. While she read a variety of books, her favorites tended to be family life in Amish communities. Pauline also loved searchwords and completed several pages each day. Pauline’s family loved her delicious Sour Cream Raisin Pie and that was her contribution to many family events. Spending time with family was always the greatest of gifts for Pauline. She so dearly loved and accepted each of them just as they were and nonjudgmentally. Clearly, Pauline’s two granddaughters and four great-grandchildren were the spark that ignited her will to keep going in this world for this grandma and great-grandma had such special relationships with each of them. 

We will truly miss this sweet, kind, gentle and beautiful matriarch of our family. She gave so much of herself to us and others just by being who she was. As we say our good-byes, it’s in knowing that she is loving her new life in Heaven!
