Pauline Pollitt

On 28th March 2022, peacefully at her home, Pauline, aged 81 years of Old Langho. The much loved and loving Mum of Lou, Ali and Fee, dear mother in law of Carl and Richard, devoted grandma of Nina, Ella, Billie, Max and Charlotte, loving sister of Sandra and brother in law Eric and also a dear auntie.

Pauline lived in Alderley Edge for thirty five years and, with her husband Keith, ran their business Cedar Health, importing health products from Europe. Pauline thoroughly enjoyed her work and travelling to meet suppliers. She loved the sunshine and enjoyed many happy holidays to Spain and later had many fabulous holidays with her daughters and also sister Sandra. Work also took Pauline and Keith to London regularly and Pauline became involved in the theatrical communities. She loved attending the opening nights and was always perfectly coiffured – a real glamour puss. Pauline loved shopping and was always sparkly, beautiful and smiling. She loved meals out, the cinema, opera and ballet and she read her daily paper cover to cover. One of her highlights was seeing Pavarotti in concert. Pauline moved to Brockhall Village six years ago and made many friends. Beautiful inside and out, she loved being in company and was the very heart of her family, each one loved and adored as much as the next. Her favourite sound in the world was the ‘pop’ of a champagne cork and she will be remembered for bringing glamour, excitement and wonder to every occasion.

Please feel free to dress in your favourite colour.

MESSAGES for the family of Pauline Pollitt


Jill Woodruff

I miss Pauline’s warmth, hugs and kisses. Pauline and I shared so many giggles over gossip, coffee and fizz. A dear friend to both myself and my family, when I look to the stars at night the brightest will be Pauline waving down. Night night lovely lady. X



I’m sorry you have to go.


Julie and Neil

Pauline, you will be so sadly missed by us and everyone that met you. Someone so special can never be forgotten and we will hold on to our lovely memories. We know you will be smiling somewhere with a glass of fizz in your hand xx


Trevor & Denise Jenkins

Even in your sorrow, hope you can hold on to the thought, that a life lived with so much love never really ends, but goes on forever in the hearts of those who remember. Thinking of you all at this sad time. XXXX


Alison Kay (was Haslam)

Pauline – when Lou and I were teenagers- twirling round the lounge at Beech Street in your mink coat and black patent stilettoes with your long, curly, dark hair. Waking Lou and I up on New Years Eve dancing round the bedroom with tinsel round your neck at Fairhaven. You were the height of glamour and a one off. Love and hugs to Lou, Ali and Fee xxxx



Dear Pauline, A letter to you I hoped I’d never have to write. Firstly, I know you never wanted to leave your lovely family or life. I can’t imagine their loss. They will forever miss you and all the love you had for every one of them. My family and I have a huge void that will never be replaced. Over the many years of our friendship, we’ve had such special, lucky times. I want to remind you of some of those memories. Fabulous trips, to Barbados, Spain, Portugal, St Tropez, plus London /Jayne Fonda trip. I will always remember my youngest daughter abandoning the help; for the 1 week holiday at one of your favourite hotels, at the count of the 10th pair of white trousers, and that was just the start. You would float out in the mornings, nothing less than perfect head to toe, always modelling the most divine bathing suits with one of many stunning throws to match. One of my fondest memories will always be Shelly von Strunckel. For many years every Sunday you would ping through on WhatsApp our forecast for the week ahead. We would then make numerous phone calls throughout the week dissecting the contents, laughing, making it match up to reality, with your firm belief that star signs tell you so much about a person. That said, it always proved an interesting opening when meeting new folk, you would ask their star sign or worse still, guess, then proceed to give them a full character assessment/ annihilation, (only the Virgo escaped ). We all have ups and downs during the journey of life and you Pauline have been my rock on so many occasions. Always there with wisdom and guidance. Talking for hours, putting the world to rights, always accompanied with a glass of fizz of course. We always ended up saying, “if only everyone was perfect, like us!”. Exuberant, dynamic, courageous, vivacious, are but some words to describe you. Always and forever I will miss you so very much. I know it’s now time to say goodnight my dearest friend, but not before I pour us both a “liccle” brandy ( carlos of course ) topped up with warm water. Always you will be in our hearts. Lynette, Neil, Jos, Liberty, Skye x


Megan – The Looking Glass Salon

Pauline will be greatly missed in my salon, fantastic client always glamorous before she even had her hair done. I get close and formed a lovely friendship with Pauline over the years. Twice weekly we would catch up and she would advice me in life lessons. She was always asking about my children and loved meeting them, Tommy grew fond of her Truffle crisps she fed him at her house. Always smiled and laughed together. I will miss her dearly. Xx


Mary Birkett

So sad to hear of Pauline’s passing, a dear friend.



Pauline will always be remembered for being the most glamorous grandma. I have spent many a weekend with her and Charlotte when we were younger going for food and having sleepovers which would always end in a long chatter about her makeup and skin care routine. She really was a very special lady who brought so much love and joy everywhere she went. Thinking of all the family, may she rest in peace x.
