Pauline did this while living under the same roof with the German officers who had overtaken her parents Hotel and home. She was present at the gas station in Milano when Mussolini and his girlfriend were hung from the rafters. In recognition of her brave and valiant work during the war, Pauline received a medal from "Senator" Giovanni Mercaro (former head of the Partisan Resistance in Northern Italy), which was hand delivered to her in the States by partisan member Johnny Morani.

She was an avid golfer and was still a member of the Naperbrook Women's Golf Association 9 Hole League and the Springbrook Ladies 18 Hole Golf League, having played golf at both courses (at age 92) the entire summer. Pauline was also a member of the Springbrook Intersuburban Golf League Southern Division for several years. She won many awards and trophies, and made 4 "holes in one" during her golfing career. For the 12 years her daughter co-owned and directed a pre-school in Naperville, Pauline was known and loved by the children, parents, and teachers, and was known to all as the "Grandma of Small Wonder Pre-School".

In Memory of
Robin Mair
Robin
April 20, 2014
Our starter for many years at Springbrook
Robert "Robin" Mair


Robert (Robin) Mair, 80, a 47 year resident of Naperville, formerly of Cranford, NJ passed away suddenly, April 20, 2014. Born in Scotland May 24, 1933, he came to the US at age two with his family. He became a US citizen prior to joining the army where he served with the Finance Corps in Germany. He graduated from the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania and later earned an MBA from Lewis University.
In October 1961, he married Anne Gabel. They and their two young children relocated to Naperville where Robin was Materials Manager with Distillers Company LTD in Plainfield. They rounded out their family by adding two more sons. He is survived by wife Anne, children Heather, Christopher, Rob (wife Christine), Scott, granddaughter Emily, brother David and family. Beloved by everyone for his engaging intellect and wry humor.
Robin loved the game of golf and, in retirement, was a starter at Springbrook Golf Course. He was a passionate fly-fisherman and, with his family, made many trips to Michigan’s Au Sable River where, per his request, his ashes will be spread this summer. Robin found pleasure in making golf clubs and cane fishing rods for family and friends as well as Scottish shortbread for all. He was truly unique: well read, a story-teller, trivia fact expert, WWII arm chair historian, quoter of Scottish poet Robert Burns, conversationalist on any given subject, cat-lover, bird-watcher, and most of all, a generous and devoted husband, father, granddad and friend. Our Robin is sorely missed.
