Pauline Vinson (Acree), 85, passed away on September 17, 2011 at the Hospice of Visiting Nurse Service. Born July 13, 1926 to George and Arling Acree (Munroe), she was preceded in death by husband, Leon Lewis Vinson; brothers, John and George Acree; sisters, Ines Simone, Amy Davis, Mildred Harbaugh, and Mary Stanich.

Throughout her life, she was deeply involved in taking care of others and helping people in her many and varied roles, including mother, homemaker, bookkeeper, nurse, caregiver and community volunteer. She loved life and touched everyone she met with her humanitarian and universal spirit. In that spirit, it was her wish that her body be donated to NEOUCOM in order to be of service to humanity even after her death. She will be greatly and sorrowfully missed by all. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either The Salvation Army (330-762- 8481) or to Hospice of Visiting Nurse Service (800-335-1455). On Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 6 p.m., a memorial celebration of her life will be held at Williard United Church of Christ, 742 Johnston Street, Akron, Ohio. We love you, Mom and Grandma — thanks for everything. We will carry your spirit with us always and will see you again.
