Pauline Eifler, age 78, of Knoxville, Tenn., passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2015. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend who will be missed by all. She was a lifetime member of Webb Chapel Methodist Church in McLeansboro, but enjoyed her fellowship at First Baptist Concord Church in Farragut, Tenn., and recently at Central Baptist Bearden. She graduated valedictorian from McLeansboro High School and attended Southern Illinois University. She was the epitome of everything a mother should be and spent her time serving others with her words, actions and prayers.
