Lillie Pauline (Polly) Gilmore Jackson Sloan was born in Paducah, Tx on February 25th, 1927 and was called home by our Heavenly Father December 22nd 2017. She was one of five children, Verlon, Leonard, James and Helen, born to Henry and Mary Gilmore. Pauline moved to Dallas as a young woman and met Wayne Franklin Jackson. They were married August 4, 1945, moved to Ft Worth and raised five children Diane, Mike, Carol, Henry and Mary. After Wayne's death in 1991, she married Troy Sloan.
Pauline worked at TCU for 30 Years where she would not miss an opportunity to visit with the students and learn about their lives, goals and ensure and encourage their ambitions. Her Love for the TCU Horn Frogs, and Dallas Cowboys were 2nd to none. It was a honor for anyone to know her and the positive influence on everyone's life she touched. She's often spoke of as a very gracious lady with a warm heart who always had a smile.
Pauline was also a faithful servant of the Lord and an active member of Forest Park Baptist Church for nearly 30 years. She served as a Sunday School teacher, bus driver, leader or member of numerous committees, as well as, maintained the church grounds and landscaped the beautiful flower beds at the church entrance. Pauline was blessed with many gifts: sewing, cooking, baking but her passion and artistry could always be seen in her VERY green thumb! She loved fixing bird feeders, watching birds in her flower gardens, meeting new friends traveling the country in her RV and finding treasures at the Berry Good Buy (thrift store).
Pauline was preceded in death by her young daughter, Mary Elizabeth, her beloved husband Wayne, her second husband Troy, and brother Leonard. She is survived by her children, Diane, Mike, Carol Garrett, Henry, and Mary Davis. She also is survived by her sister, Helen Hulcy of Earth, Tx, brothers James Gilmore of Temple,Tx and Verlon Gilmore of Orlando, Florida. She was blessed with many Grand Children, Great Grandchildren and Great Great grandchildren and family who remember her as a strong, beautiful, loving mother, grandmother and woman who made the world a better place. With Pauline's love for the Lord and Savior and church family and friends she laid the foundation of faith, hope and love for them all.
Pauline resided at the Brush Country Nursing Home in Austin, TX. The family would like to thank them for the wonderful care they provided our mother the last five years.
