In loving memory of
Mrs. Pauline May Brydge (nee Chamberlin)
August 2nd, 1925 – January 7th, 2020
Passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Tuesday January 7th, 2020 at the the Rosedale Center in Matheson at the age of 94. Pauline was born in Tate, Saskatchewan on August 2, 1925 to the late Cephas Chamberlin and late Martha Jane Chamberlin (nee Weatherup). Beloved wife of the late Jack Brydge. Pauline will be deeply missed by her daughter Sandra (Carl) Hoover and Ed (late Mary) Brydge, her granddaughter Wendy Brydge, many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends. She was the sister of Ethelbert, Elsie (John) McCall, Irvan (Hilda), Edwin (Genevieve), Ross (Francis), Mildred (Andrew) Perratt, all of whom predeceased her.
Pauline’s ancestors landed near what is today called Braintree, Massachusetts in 1634 with migration north into Quebec Canada around 1801. From there the family slowly dispersed west into Ontario, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Pauline was the first head of the one-man office department of the newly built Bingham Memorial Hospital, while Jack her husband was the first one-man grounds and maintenance officer. Pauline spent 35+ years at Bingham. In 1954, Pauline and Jack along with one other family constructed the first Pentecostal church building in Matheson, supporting and growing its presence for all of her 66 years in the community. She also began the Hospital Auxiliary and worked tirelessly throughout its existence to raise money for the hospital and patient care.
