Pauline Davis Dudley was born October 31, 1943, in Gilbert, South Carolina.  She was the beloved daughter of the late Oscar, Sr. and Mary Lee “Mae” Davis.  She departed this earthly life to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 23, 2022, in Pelion, South Carolina.

Pauline was united in marriage to Thomas Dudley.

Pauline joined the St. Paul Baptist Church at an early age.  During her tenure, she faithfully served as a member of the Saint Paul Gospel Singers, the Usher Board, and as Church Secretary for many years.

Pauline was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.  Her caring and compassionate love for all will forever live in the hearts of all those who loved and knew her.
