July 31, 1921 ~ February 19, 2021

Born in: Walton, NY
Resided in: Pueblo, CO

Pauline Salerno, 99, went to be with her Lord on February 19, 2021. Born July 31, 1921, in Walton, New York. Pauline is survived by her son, Jeffry (Cris) Salerno; her grandchildren, Nicolas Salerno, Anthony (Tiffaney) Salerno, Joshua (Amanda) Salerno, all of whom were her pride and joy; five great-grandchildren, Dominic, Luke, Cooper, Jenni and Taylor; and sister-in-law, Donna Salerno. Preceded in death by her parents, Harry A. and Flora Wilbur; loving husband, Albert Salerno; son, Randall Salerno; and brother, Harry J Wilbur.
Pauline and Albert lived a wonderful life in Walnut Creek, California, for 47 years. They had a passion for golf, cherished their friendships and traveled the entire world together – visiting five continents and countless countries, before retiring to Goodyear, Arizona. Pauline later moved to Pueblo to be closer to her son, and grandkids after Al’s passing. She loved to play bridge and other card games with her friends. She also did various crafts including tatting and needlepoint. After the death of her son, Randy, Pauline learned how to read and write in braille. She loved her family, especially the time they were able to spend together. She was very proud of her family in New York, Sheila, Harry John, and Kathleen. Pauline wrote a book on the Family Heritage of the Wilbur and Salerno families that will be cherished by all her Grandchildren, Nieces and Nephews.
Special Thanks to Abode Hospice for their loving and wonderful care during the last few weeks of her life.
Graveside services will be held at Oakmont Memorial Park in Lafayette, California, at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pueblo Young Life at pueblo.younglife.org or mailed to Young Life PO BOX 8443 Pueblo, CO, 81008, in Pauline’s memory.  Online condolences, www.MontgomerySteward.com

  1. CandleImageWe visited a Japanese festival and I hadn’t used chopstix. I was frustrated I couldn’t use them. We got home from the festival and she got a stash jelly beans out. She sat with me at the living room coffee table and practiced with me for a long time. I’m a master with chopstix now and anytime I use them I remember that day.
