Pauline (Toney) Brunk, 91, of Fountaintown, passed away on March 19, 2021. She was born in Indianapolis, IN, to the late Bruce and Margaret (McQueen) Toney on June 19, 1929.
Beyond her work at Western Electric, she was known to be an excellent and loving mother and wife to her two sons and husband.

She is survived by her children, Donal (Margaret) Brunk and Daniel (Jane) Brunk; grandchildren Dan Kuroiwa, Josh Kuroiwa (Nicole), Rachel Hamilton (Justin); eight great-grandchildren Mara, Grant, Quinn, Ethan, Reese, Oliver, Tucker, Jane; nieces Sherri Benson, Suzan (Dennis) Campbell, Kathy (Jack) Rothaar; and close family friend Lorna Cottingham.
