Pauline Gascon GOYEAU
By Josée DUBOIS, Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - Page A18
Physician, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt. Born September 19, 1932 in Cochrane, Ontario Died December 8, 2004, of cancer, in Rogersville, Tennessee., aged 72.
Pauline grew up as the middle child in a family of five in Ottawa. She was always the tallest person in her class when girls were not supposed to be tall. She had to wear her aunt's hand-me-down shoes that were too small since size 13 shoes were hard to find in those days! She laughed when she recounted these stories, for Pauline had a wicked sense of humour and loved to tell jokes.
However, what made her special is how she is remembered as a selfless doctor, caregiver and confidante. Pauline was a trailblazer. She was lucky to have been born into a family that valued education. While her older sisters became teachers, Pauline studied to be a laboratory technician. When she decided that she was as smart as all those doctors she had worked for, she made up her mind to go to medical school. She had saved up enough money and was still living at home so she knew that she could do it. And she did.
Pauline graduated from the University of Ottawa in 1961 and was chosen as the class valedictorian. At medical school she met the man who became her husband, Francis (Frank) GOYEAU, a tall handsome fellow student from Windsor. After graduating, Pauline and Frank set off for St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio, to complete their internship. In those days the interns' quarters were exclusively male so Pauline got to live in the married students' quarters. Her mother was greatly relieved! Pauline and Frank married in Youngstown in 1962 and I was their flower girl. Shortly thereafter they moved to Columbus to begin respective specializations, Pauline in pathology and Frank in internal medicine.
Only a few months into their studies, they decided to devote their abilities to the Medical Mission Sisters' 120-bed hospital in Fort Portal, Uganda (as well as the surrounding jungle outposts) for the next two years. Pauline's own special responsibilities included pediatrics and the hospital laboratory. Her patients named her Ab'ojo (Fine Lady). The arrival of her twins (Philippe and François) was viewed by the community as a major event that linked her to the local culture and to all twin-bearing families. While in Uganda, Pauline also had a daughter (Dominique).
The family then settled in Windsor where Pauline worked primarily as an operating-room scrub doctor, while raising her family that grew to five with the births of Michelle and Melanie. In 1980, the family moved to Rogersville, Tennessee., where she opened one of the first Rural Health Homecare Clinics. The clinic's success surprised even its harshest critics and its legacy has endured as a credit to this gracious woman. Always seeking to better herself, Pauline completed a master's degree in public health while in her sixties and later concentrated on occupational health in her husband's practice until she retired. The next few years were spent travelling and enjoying her grandchildren.
We last saw Pauline at a family event in Ottawa last June. She seemed happy and in good form. However, soon after returning home, she began to feel poorly. In October, she was told that she was in the final stages of lung cancer. Her health deteriorated quickly but she faced the inevitable in the same way she had faced other challenges in her life -- bravely and serenely.
She spent Thanksgiving with her children and grandchildren. Many people came to visit: her sisters, family from Windsor and many Friends. She seemed to have a resurgence of energy on some days and even met her sister Rachel at the airport. It was during Rachel's visit that she died peacefully in her sleep.
Josée DUBOIS is Pauline's niece.
