Pauline Marie Brungard

Pauline Marie (Pribble) Brungard, 90, formerly of Muncy and North Fort Myers, Fla., died Friday, Aug. 10, 2012, at the Williamsport Home.

Born May 28, 1922, in Petroleum, W.Va., and raised in Woolrich, she was the daughter of the late Sherman and Ella (Rogers) Pribble. Her husband of 46 years, Kenneth R. Brungard, died Sept. 12, 1996.

A member of the 1940 class of Lock Haven High School, she later graduated Magna Cum Laude from Lycoming College in 1950. From 1943 until 1946 she served in the U.S. Navy, where she was among the first group of women in the Navy (WAVES) and was a veteran of World War II.

Pauline worked as a student loan coordinator at Lycoming College until retiring after more than 25 years of service. She was a former member of First United Methodist Church in Muncy and was currently a member of First Church United Methodist in Williamsport. In her spare time she enjoyed cooking, gardening, playing the organ and cross stitching. She especially enjoyed the time she spent working on family scrapbooks.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by a sister-in-law, Emma Brungard.

The funeral was at 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13, at Grenoble’s, 121 S. Main St., Muncy. Officiating was her minister, Pastor Dave Spearly. Burial with full military honors followed in Muncy Cemetery.
