Tom and Pauline moved their family of five children, Rex, Tex, Charles, Dolly and Robert from Indiana to Michigan in 1955 where they worked together on the family farm on Jonesville Rd. In 1961, another sibling,
Rita, joined the family. Pauline worked on the farm as well as for Dog n Suds, Darlings Manufacturing, Farm and Fleet, Southwind and Kmart over the years. She retired in 1975 so a trip to Alaska, a life time dream of her husband, could be made.
