Pauline Risner, 85, of rural Bucyrus, died Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at Heartland of Bucyrus.
She was born November 4, 1932 in Montgomery County Kentucky to the late Anderson and Thelma (Allen) Willoughby.

Pauline cherished time spent with family. She also loved being outdoors and could often be found working with her flowers or tending to her Half Runner beans in her vegetable garden, which she faithfully planted every year as well as other produce. In more recent years, Pauline enjoyed playing 500 rummy with family and found relaxation in front of the TV with a cup of coffee.
