Pauline M. Underhill, 74, died February 19, 2019 at her West Bend, WI residence.

She was born May 12, 1944 in Sheboygan, WI to Norbert and Mary Felix Heiting. The family moved to Port Washington, WI when she was a child, where she attended local schools. While working at Globe Union Battery Plant in Milwaukee, WI she met Donald Underhill. They were married on December 21, 1974.

Pauline was kind and thoughtful, helped out whenever she could, and after retiring served as a chaplain at the Rhinelander hospital. Pauline loved being “up North” and enjoyed nature, playing golf and biking. In late 2018 she moved to West Bend to be closer to family.
