Pauline returned to Unadilla after completing her degree and worked at Medicoach and York Modern. Pauline married David DeForest on September 24, 1966, and they raised 2 children. Pauline was a loving a devoted wife and mother, and stayed home with her children for several years before returning to work at Marine Midland Bank in Unadilla.

Pauline was a lifelong member of the Unadilla Friends Church, serving for many years as the church treasurer. Pauline also enjoyed ceramics and created beautiful pieces for every holiday. Her greatest joy in later years was spending time with her 2 grandsons and traveling with her husband. She was grateful to be able to travel one last time to see her oldest grandson's high school graduation in NH in June of 2023. A memorial service will be held to celebrate Pauline in late June. Donations in her memory can be directed to the Unadilla Friends Church, and loved ones are encouraged to feed the birds or plant a tree in her honor as she so enjoyed watching her birds outside, even in her final days.
