She was born on August 16, 1931, in Jefferson City, MO., the daughter of John and Helena (Veit) Englert. She was married on November 27, 1952, in Jefferson City to Lawrence Markway who preceded her in death August 30, 2012.
A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, she graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1949.
Pauline was proud to have worked at Communique for several years in addition to working beside her husband on their family farm. For many years they harvested row cops and managed herds of cattle and hogs in Wardsville and in the Missouri river bottoms. She was a member of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Wardsville.
In addition to being a lifelong farmer she was an avid planter of trees, and with the help of her two sons was able to keep the property looking beautiful. She was known for her master skills of making strawberry jam and angel food cakes; she loved cooking for her family. Pauline’s memory will carry on through the many beautiful quilts she created throughout the years, but most of all she will be remembered for being a loving and devoted grandmother.
