Pauline Frances (Carrier) Metcalf, 82, of Coventry, CT, beloved wife for 62 years of Donald Metcalf, was called home peacefully on Saturday, November 23, 2019 while at home with her husband by her side.
Pauline was born in Hardwick, VT on May 21, 1937 to the late Herve and Laurencienne Carrier. She married her husband in 1957 and supported him throughout his 20 year Naval career, living in Seattle, Japan, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Philippines and Maryland. Upon his retirement in 1975, they settled in Coventry, CT. Her greatest joy was her family and her faithful pets, Bandit and Cuddles.

The family would also like to thank Bo, the patient and dedicated caregiver who took wonderful care of Pauline in the last year of her life.
She was predeceased by a brother, Albert Carrier and a sister, Annette Roy. She also leaves behind two sisters, Theresa Bouchard of Guilford, CT and Florence Gustafson of Naples, FL. Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. They ask that any donations be made to a charity of their choice. For online condolences please visit: www.pietrasfuneralhome.com
