(July 23, 2004)
Pauline Irene Stoesz died Friday, July 23 at Powell Valley Hospice Nursing Home after a long battle with cancer. She was 72.
She was born July 16, 1932, in Spangler, Penn., and lived in California until May of 1996, when she moved to Powell to live near her daughter, Debbie Cook, son-in-law Ed Cook and grandson, Robbie Cook.
She was a member and officer of the Powell Eagles Auxiliary and volunteered much of her time helping to prepare dinner events and bingo games. She was a part of the family of workers at Cassie's Supper Club in Cody and used to check I.D. cards at the door. She was known for keeping the antique pianos and woodwork around her work station clean and polished. Many at Cassie's knew her simply as "Mom."
She is survived by two brothers, Paul (Nancy) Koval and Mickey Koval; two sons, Gary Pulis and Wayne Pulis; one daughter, Debbie Cook; four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Cremation has taken place and a potluck wake in celebration of her life is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 22, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Cassie's. The potluck celebration is open to the public.
