Life Legacy


Miss Frances Pauline Callahan, 89, formerly of Winamac, passed away at 3:55 AM on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at Peabody Retirement Community of North Manchester.

Born in Wabash County on December 12, 1922, Frances was the precious daughter of John and Ruth Anderson Callahan. As one of nine children she grew up on a dairy farm, sharing her childhood with three sisters and five brothers. As a young girl Pauline assisted with the dairy operations, hand milking 18 holsteins.

Developing her work ethic as a young lady, Pauline was passionate about work. That is what brought her great satisfaction. As a young adult she continued to work on the farm. She also found time to work at Eaton Manufacturing in Winamac and Bryan Manufacturing in North Manchester.

Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church near Bruce Lake is the home of Pauline's church family. Over the years she loved to garden. To relax, Pauline enjoyed reading romantic novels authored by Nora Roberts, Cheryl Woods, and Debbie McComber. Her family remembers her Saturday morning routine of shopping at Berkway grocery store. She always included in her purchase extra packets of NECCO wafers to share with her nieces.

Frances will be lovingly remembered by two sisters, Berdine Azbell of Rochester and Mary Montel of North Manchester, four sisters-in-law, and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister Katherine Callahan, and 5 brothers: Donald, Charles, Harvey, Russell, and John Callahan.

Chaplain Robin LaRue will officate services. Interment will be in the Oaklawn Cemetery in North Manchester.
