March 4, 1927 - June 13, 2024

Paulina (Pauline) Bertha MacCrimmon (nee Kaun) was born March 4, 1927, on the family farm just outside of Middle Lake, Saskatchewan to parents Lena (Grundmann) and Karl Kaun. Paulina passed away peacefully on June 13, 2024, at The Mayfair Long Term Care Facility in Abbotsford, B.C. at the age of 97 years. She was predeceased by her loving husband (Callum MacCrimmon 1920-2003) of 30 years on February 26, 2003.

Paulina had two sisters (Louise Bradley 1924-2015 and Johanna Becker 1920- 1997) and two brothers (Alvin Kaun 1930-2003) and Arnold Kaun (Peggy) presently living in Creston, B.C.

Paulina is also survived by her two sons Robert (Bob) Singbeil of Vancouver, B.C. and Brent Singbeil (Kathy) of Red Deer, Alberta and several nieces and nephews.

Paulina ventured west to Vancouver, B.C. in the late 1940's and was married to Leon Bruno Singbeil, and they had 2 sons. They moved to Keefers, B.C. where Leon worked for the railway and ventured into the logging business. After separating, Paulina and the boys moved to Hope, B.C. in 1958. Paulina was the original manager of the Simpson-Sears outlet and mail order store in Hope until 1972, then married Callum MacCrimmon in 1973 and moved to Abbotsford. They operated Mac's Border Store in Huntingdon at the Sumas border (which Callum had started in 1967) until 1976 when Mac's illness forced the sale. Paulina and Callum travelled extensively after his recovery. Paulina loved to tell stories of days gone by, and when she did garden it was a labor of love. Paulina had a strong faith in the Lord and devoted many years to her church in several capacities.
