September 10, 1917 - August 1, 2010
Pauline T. (Tomko) Rice, 92, of Toledo, Ohio passed away on August 1, 2010 at the Franciscan Care Center of Sylvania. Pauline was born on September 10, 1917, in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania to John and Mary Tomko. After moving to Akron, Ohio, she met Andrew Rice, while they were working at the Goodyear Tire Company. They were married in Corpus Christie, Texas on June 4, 1942 where Andy was stationed in the Army. Pauline and her family moved to Toledo in 1955 where they were one of the initial parishioners of the new Blessed Sacrament Church. She was active in parish activities, including playground monitor for many years, CCD instructor, member of the Rosary Altar Society and event volunteer. Pauline was a strong, loving woman, who dedicated her life to her family. She loved music and reading poetry and always had a kind word or a hug for a friend or stranger. We will miss her love, wisdom, and humor.
