Pauline’s son Fergal made the following comment about his mother – “Between 2006 and 2016, my mother Pauline Morrow had a home in Esentepe, where she lived for 5 to 6 months a year, mainly spring and autumn. Many friends from around the world visited her there. She made greeting cards and had a craft stall at the market. She went to concerts, spent time at the beach and on the water, and had lots of friends. She loved Cyprus”.
I met Pauline in about 2008 when she was a frequent visitor to North Cyprus and spent some very nice times with her at various events. Eventually Pauline returned to County Derry and although I kept up to date with her movements via Facebook, we sadly lost touch on a personal basis. She was a very lively and outgoing person and very good company. I am sure Pauline will be missed by many people who knew her.
