Pauline Elizabeth Cody Thompson, 95, passed away peacefully at her residence on Saturday, March 11, 2023. She was born on September 3, 1927, in Davidson County. Pauline enjoyed her life, as she spent it doing the things she loved. She was a proud business owner of Pine Printing and had a career at Kaiser Roth Mill where she was a knitter.
