In Memoriam

Pauline Bjonness-Jacobsen passed away peacefully on October 7, 2006 in her sleep early Saturday morning near her home in West Vancouver, Canada.  

Pauline will be deeply missed by her surviving family. People who knew Pauline grew to love her timeless elegance, warmth, generosity and wonderful sense of humor.

A true artist at heart and a creative force, her love of drawing and sculpting led to Dolls by Pauline in the 1970's and, during the next three decades, her doll-making art was the subject of countless magazine articles, more than ten years of personal appearances on the television shopping channel QVC in the US and Europe, and over thirty prestigious doll awards nominated from industry insiders as well as collectors themselves. 

Her business became a family treasure she shared with thousands of collectors around the world. Her children, who have worked with her for over 20 years, intend to continue Pauline's tradition of excellence.

You will be so deeply missed, my dear friend.

Carolyn
