SPRINGVALE  -  Pauline R. Godin, 85, of Springvale passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving extended family and friends. She was born December 16, 1932 in Biddeford, to Yvonne (Gonneville) and Edmour Cote. Pauline graduated from Thornton High School in 1951 and was married to the love of her life, Joseph (Cuffy) Godin in 1955, until his untimely passing in 1973. They shared one son, David. Over the years, Pauline was employed with Adam's Trucking as a Bookkeeper. After taking some time off to raise her son, she returned to work at Goodall Hospital where she was employed as a receptionist in central registration. She was most proud to work for Dr. Daniel Mazza for several years as his receptionist, after which time she finally decided to retire. Pauline truly enjoyed spending time with her extended family and friends with whom she traveled to Florida, Montreal, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and took a cruise to the Caribbean. Her favorite trips were to Foxwoods, where she visited several times a year. Her favorite pastime was sitting in the sun by the pool and watching the kids swim and play. She also spent hours completing find-a-word puzzles when she was not able to be outside. Pauline was predeceased by her parents; her husband, Cuffy; sister, Marielle Butland and brother, Lionel Cote. She leaves behind her son, David Kanda of Hawaii; a sister, Justine Davis of Saco; and a special nephew, Mark Butland of Old Orchard Beach. Poppy will be sadly missed by her extended, adopted family, Sharon and David Pray, with whom she lived, Dawn Pray of East Millinocket, Ross and Jessica Pray of Springvale, and their daughters, Emerson and Charlotte Pray, and Donald and Peggy Gagne of Sanford. As Poppy would say "I know it sounds crazy, but like anything else, it's all part of life!" Special thanks go out to Hospice of Southern Maine, who provided her with the best of care, at home. They are all very special people. At Pauline's request, a private and simple graveside service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Black Funeral Homes and Cremation Service, Sanford-Springvale. To leave a message of condolence for the family please visit Those desiring, may make memorial contributions to Southern Maine Hospice 180 US Rt. 1 #1 Scarborough, ME 04074
