Pauline M. Underhill, 74, died of pancreatic cancer at her home in West Bend Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Mrs. Underhill was born in Sheboygan on May 12, 1944, to Norbert and Mary Felix Heiting. The family moved to Port Washington when she was a child.

While working at Globe Union Battery Plant in Milwaukee, she met Donald Underhill. The couple married on Dec. 21, 1974.

The Underhills lived in Cedarburg and Port Washington before retiring to Rhinelander in 2000. Mr. Underhill preceded his wife in death on June 28, 2013.

Her family said she was kind and thoughtful, and after retiring served as a chaplain at the Rhinelander hospital. Mrs. Underhill loved being “up north” and enjoyed nature, playing golf and biking.

In 2018, she moved to West Bend to be closer to family.
