Sellinger, Pauline


Pauline Gwen Selinger, age 64 years, passed away suddenly in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on Thursday, March 1st, 2018.  Pauline was born on May 11th, 1953 in Wadena, SK.  She was the middle child of Oli and Jemima Thomasson and grew up in Mozart, SK.  She had many cherished memories from Mozart and had many dear friends and relatives from this area.  After high school, Pauline became a Registered Nurse. After completing nursing school in Saskatoon, SK, Pauline worked in Flin Flon, MB and then moved to Moose Jaw shortly thereafter.  There she met Ron Selinger and on August 13th, 1977 they married.  Together they had two sons, Stephen and Shane, and built a life with their children around CP Rail and her nursing career.  Pauline had a fulfilling career as a RN at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital from 1975 to 2012.  Pauline’s kind, loving and compassionate nature extended beyond the borders of her nursing practices and touched the hearts of all those she cared for as well as her co-workers.  She was predeceased by her parents, Oli and Jemima Thomasson; sister, Jeanette Heshka; and mother-in-law, Eileen Selinger (Hanby).  Pauline will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Ron Selinger; brother, Tom Thomasson; her sons, Stephen (Lisa) Selinger, and Shane (Stephanie) Selinger; grandchildren: James, Macy and Oliver; nephew, Mark (Dana) Heshka; great-niece Sierra; niece, Michelle Heshka; father-in-law, Henry Selinger; her best friend, Joan Swaok; as well as many friends in Moose Jaw and the communities of Mozart and Wynyard, SK.  Pauline had many friends and was active in the Moose Jaw community.  She enjoyed swimming and she was extremely friendly and sociable to anyone she met.  In her younger days she was an excellent volleyball player and curler, winning numerous trophies and awards.  She remained physically active later in life and in 2016 she won two gold medals in the Saskatchewan Senior games for swimming.  Pauline was an amazing photographer and enjoyed photography club.  She loved taking photos of grain elevators and the Saskatchewan landscape.  She loved baking buns or cookies and surprising friends, or even the lifeguards at the pool, with these treats.  Pauline loved her best friend Joan and her daughter Kim and always enjoyed their visits and phone calls.  She also had a special bond with her niece Michelle and adored her nephew Mark.  She treasured her three grandchildren and made many trips to Lethbridge to visit James and Macy.  She was their special Amma who gave out love easily and enjoyed playing kitchen with them, singing songs and reading many stories.  We will always be grateful as she provided an amazing source of strength and hands on help with Oliver while Shane and Stephanie were undergoing Stephanie’s cancer treatments shortly after Oliver was born.  Pauline expressed how proud she was of Shane and Stephanie and was excited to be there when Stephanie got to ring the bell to signify the end of treatment.  We miss you Pauline, Mom, Amma.  You are finally now at peace and in the arms of the angels.  Please help us remember Pauline.  A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, March 10th, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations in Pauline’s name may be made to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658 Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.  Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
