Pauline Ann Len

October 1, 1927 — May 13, 2024


Poland- Pauline Ann Len, 96, of Poland, passed away May 13, 2024 at home with her children by her side. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Joseph, whom she married on October 3, 1953.

 Born October 1, 1927 in Youngstown, she was a daughter of the late Ignacy and Anna (Kachmarski) Shura.

 Elevated elegance, juxtaposed to a keen sense of the ridiculous, is the quintessential description of Pauline. Her ability to look at the world in all shades of KAL-ers is an inspiration to her family. She always wore high heels and dresses, and believed in proper etiquette, especially the rule of “no elbows on the table."  Pauline had an artistic and poetic personality, boundless spirituality, and such a deep appreciation of language that she was a walking thesaurus.

 In her spare time, Pauline enjoyed listening to all genres of music, reading literature and fairy tales, and collecting and supporting the fine arts. You could often find her driving around in her Cadillac, taking in the natural surroundings and small towns, while finding hidden gems of restaurants. She was always charmed seeing nature’s gifts of flowers and animals. Antique collecting with her husband was one pastime that she enjoyed as well as carrying on Polish traditions and holidays, and cooking her famous recipes. Above all, she cherished being a wife, mother, and grandmother, and her favorite moments were expressing her tender love and care for all.

 She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her children, Kristine (Lenny) Nicolosi, of Long Island,  David Len, of Poland, Elizabeth (Randy) Williams, of Vermont, and Maria Len, of Boardman; grandchildren, Bryan Nicolosi and Melina Williams; and her brother, Robert Shura.

 In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her son, Richard Len, and eight siblings.

 In accordance with her wishes, services will be private to the family. She will be laid to rest next to her husband at Poland Riverside Cemetery.

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep; the more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite.” - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet.
