It’s with great sadness our family announces the passing of Pauline on Wednesday, March 6th, 2019 at her home in Victoria surrounded by her loved ones, after a short but brave battle with Pancreatic Cancer.  She was born on February 8th, 1951 in Badger, Newfoundland and was very proud to be one of 17 children of Sylvester and Maude Hurley (predeceased).

She is survived by her husband, Brian Mason; former husband, Frank and son, Derek Porter; daughter-in-law, Caren Porter; grandchildren, Cole, Madison, and Kayla Porter and Kelela Groulx; sisters, Isabel Hayes, Theresa Newman, and Marion Paul; brothers, Terry, Tony, Damien, Neil and Frank Hurley and Jarrod McKenna; stepdaughter, Cheryl Mason (Groulx) and stepson, Michael Mason and her countless nieces and nephews. Pauline was predeceased by her brothers, Jack, Bruce, Justin, Brendan, Paul, Joseph and Gerard Hurley.

Pauline was well known for her endless energy and passion for business. It was often said that when she walked in a room, she would light it up with her incredible spirit. Over her many years, she had several rewarding careers. Starting out in sales and accounting with many well-known companies, her entrepreneurial spirit and drive eventually led her to follow her dreams and take the bold and unwavering leap to becoming her own boss, starting and establishing many successful businesses. Her most recent passions led her into real estate and becoming an independent Community Health Care Worker, where she truly loved giving of herself to the elderly and disabled.

She has always had a huge heart, often putting the needs of others ahead of her own. May she forever rest in peace, knowing that she is loved and missed by so many.

The family would like to extend a special heartfelt thank-you to all the Doctors and Nurses at both hospice and home care for their compassionate care and kindness and especially to Pauline’s niece, RN Michelle Paul for her loving care and support!

A Celebration of Life will be held at Pauline’s home, 1154 Nature Park Place, Victoria, BC, V9B 0S6, on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 2:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society and the SPCA.

Condolences may be offered to the family below.

    My family was so fortunate to have had Pauline in our lives. She was an amazing caregiver for my mother, Nettie, who is now 95. We truly believe that Pauline is the reason Mom made it to age 95. She and Mom had such a loving, warm relationship. Pauline’s energy was infectious and it is hard to accept that she is gone.We will miss her terribly but are so grateful to have known her.
