Prior to retirement, she had been employed by Osram Sylvania in Manchester for over 25 years.

Pauline was devoted to her Catholic Faith. She enjoyed cooking and solving crossword puzzles. She cherished time spent with her family and friends, and especially with her dog "Rosie".

Predeceased by her devoted husband, James O'Gara, Pauline will be remembered by many as a loving and cherished wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend.

Close loved ones include her son, Eric Murphy and his partner Timothy Wu of San Francisco; her daughter, Stephanie Steele and her husband Ron of Laconia; five grandchildren, Cristopher Buxton, Jakob Steele, Ryan Steele, Ronnie Steele III, and Ashley Steele; her great-granddaughter, Allieanna Steele; her brothers, Ronald Lemay and his wife Irene of Merrimack, Normand Lemay and his wife Judy of Manchester; nieces, nephews and cousins; and her best friend, Lorraine Pinard of Goffstown.

A private funeral service for immediate family was held at Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory. A celebration of Pauline's life will be scheduled and announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Pauline's memory to New Hampshire SPCA or Wounded Warriors.
