Pauline Elizabeth (Weimer) MillemanApril 5, 1932 ~ January 1, 2018 (age 85)
On January 1, 2018, IU basketball lost one of its biggest fans as our heavenly father called for Pauline Elizabeth Milleman (85) to become one of his angels. Pauline was born on April 5, 1932 to a farm family in Avilla, IN. At a very early age, she was preparing meals and performing household duties for her parents. As practice makes perfect, her skills in the kitchen became legendary. Sunday lunch after church service at grandma's house was the family gathering place with all the dishes and desserts made from scratch. Her social calendar was highlighted with card clubs as she enjoyed bridge, pinochle and euchre. But most of all, she loved to watch her grandchildren participate in their many sporting events and musical performances. She met her husband, Ronald Lee Milleman, at Kraft Foods in Kendallville and they were married in January 28, 1956. Shortly after, they moved to Huntertown, IN where they were blessed to raise their family of five children. Pauline was a dedicated and active church member at Our Hope Lutheran Church.
Surviving are her son, Dr. Jeffery (Kim) Milleman of Fort Wayne; daughters, Carol (Matt) Richardson and Kris (Mark) Fisher, both of Huntertown; ten grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. Grandchildren: Kyle (Cassie) Milleman, Carter Milleman, Cocoa Milleman, Nick (Becky) Papaik, Angie Papaik, Carmen (Tim) Keyes, Abbie (Jared) Yoder, Casey (James) Brames, Ford Fisher, and Gage Fisher
