Joys Garden in Honor of Pauline Fagan

Pauline B. Fagan

A Mentor Committed to Wellness & Joy

Pauline was an avid gardener. She taught me to prune, root cuttings, arrange flowers, pull weeds, and to see my world as a garden.

Pauline encouraged me to paint, took watercolor classes with me when I was too young to drive myself.

She taught me to sew, to think about how the pattern pieces all fit together, to design it the way I envisioned.

In life she wished for wellness.  In her memory, Joy’s Garden is the healing arts advocacy that she lived.

Pauline was an advocate for wellness. Cancer prevention was her mission. She took vitamins religiously and read everything she could get her hands on in the way of cutting edge cancer prevention.

When she was ill, she believed that somehow her mother was connected to her cancer. She couldn’t put her finger on it. And the family was powerless to help her. After she passed, she continued her advocacy by coming to her daughters in dreams ~ all three of whom have benefited from her mentoring.
