Minnie Pauline Ausborn

January 30, 1921 — January 23, 2022

Minnie Pauline Kyle Ausborn passed away on Sunday January 23, 2022 a week shy of her 101st birthday. Born in Monroe County on January 30, 1921, she was a daughter to John Paul and Lula Bell Hall Kyle. She married John Elmer Ausborn in 1941 before he went off to fight in World War II where he was killed in action. Through strength and resilience, Pauline became the matriarch of a large family and there wasn’t one of them that hasn’t stayed in her home. She was of the Baptist faith and she also loved to work crossword puzzles and work in her yard. She like to work with flowers, and she had a passion or watch her boys play baseball. She could sew and cook which she was known for her chicken and dumplings. She enjoyed reading and playing bingo.
