November 2, 1932 — September 18, 2014

H. Pauline McElrath of Vienna, Ohio, heard a voice call upon her “well done good and faithful servant” on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 12:20 PM as she finished her earthly life and started her heavenly journey. She was under the care of Omni Manor Nursing Home & Hospice of the Valley, Youngstown, Ohio and passed after a period of declining health. She was 81.

Pauline was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 2, 1932, a daughter to Nathan E. & Anna E. (Roberts) Thompson.

She loved caring for her family and looking after everyone. In fact, while she was a teenager, she left school after her mother’s death to help raise her seven siblings.

Mrs. McElrath never retired. She was very proud to serve her family as a homemaker. In her spare time, Pauline enjoyed tending to her flower gardens.

Survivors include: her children, Teddy M. Bryant, Weathersfield Twp., Ohio, and Karen J. Kazear & her husband Doug, Vienna; her grandchildren, Michelle Sherman & her husband Dylan, Jeremy Kazear & his wife Tiffanie, & Leandra Nagy & her husband Joe; her great-grandchildren, Gavin, Emma, Caleb, Cohen, Elizabeth, Chloe, & Conor; and her brothers, Ralph Thompson, Donald Thompson & his wife Bonnie, Jimmy Thompson & his wife Rose, Roger "Duke" Thompson & his wife Roberta, and Mike Thompson & his wife Shelia, all of Cincinnati, Ohio.

She was preceded in death by her parents; by her 1st husband, Manual Bryant & her 2nd husband, C. Allen McElrath; by her daughter, Cheryl J. Thomas; by her grandson, Brent Majecic; by her brother, Kenneth Thompson; & by her sister, Wilma Smith.

A time of gathering will be held to honor Pauline’s life on Monday, September 22, 2014 from 5-7 PM in her church, Victory Christian Center, Vienna. Recognition of her continues at 7 PM with a Celebration of Life Service.

As suggested by her family, material contributions can be made to the Victory Christian Center, Vienna, or the Warren Family Mission.
