Pauline Mary (Jaschinski) Poetzsch, 84, of Farmington, beloved wife of 61 years to Juan Robert Poetzsch, passed away peacefully Monday (December 2, 2019). Born November 30, 1935 in Burlington, CT; daughter of late Ernest, Sr. and Martha (Tharau) Jaschinski. She is survived by her sister Eleanor (and Malcolm) Doyle of Elmwood and her brother Ernest Jaschinski, Jr. of Canton, CT. She leaves her daughter Martha Kleszcz of Unionville, her 3 sons Robert Poetzsch of Unionville, Norman Poetzsch of Middletown and Carey Poetzsch of Canton; 9 grandchildren: Austin, Brian & Carter Poetzsch of Plainville, Daniel Poetzsch of Goshen, Jessica Olabisi, Richard Kleszcz and Brandon Poetzsch of Unionville, Ryan Poetzsch & wife Jessica of Rockfall and Lindsay Poetzsch of Carlsbad, CA; seven great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Pauline worked for 10+ years at Connecticut General in Bloomfield (where she met Juan) and retired from Avon Medical Group after 30+ years of service. She was a Cub Scout Den Mother, member of Wilhelmina Lodge# 24 O.D.H.S. and St. Matthew Lutheran Church.
She was a great friend to everyone who knew her; there wasn’t a birthday or holiday that went by that you didn’t receive her love. She enjoyed knitting scarfs, rebating, playing Sudoku, Scrabble and solving many crossword and jigsaw puzzles over the years. Her favorite pastime was spending time with her family and loved taking care of her grandchildren, watching UConn Women’s basketball and Red Sox baseball on TV with her husband.

Funeral service will be Thursday, December 5, 11:30 am at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 224 Lovely Street, Avon, CT with Associate Pastor Brian Rajcok officiating. Memorial donations may be made to St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Avon, CT 06001.
Spread your wings and fly my angel, your life has touched us all.
Your wings so very delicate, But your spirit conquers all.
You gave us so much joy on earth, But God now reclaims his prize.
Spread your wings and fly my angel, Let your wings take to the skies.
