A proud, lifelong resident of Virginia, Pauline was born in Arlington on October 16, 1934 to the late Joyce and Effie Longerbeam. She graduated from Clarke County High School in 1954 and was married in 1961. In addition to being a loving mother and homemaker, Pauline also managed the books for her husband's concrete business. She adored her grandchildren and loved any opportunity to be with them. Family was always very important to her, and she regularly hosted large gatherings so everyone could be together. Pauline was a devout member and elder of the Mt. Hope Presbyterian Church, an avid reader, a terrific cook, and was an expert with a crochet hook.
Pauline is survived by her husband, Charles Sydnor; their son, Andy (Albert) Sydnor of Orange, California; and two grandchildren, Anthony Sydnor and Andrea Sydnor. She is also survived by two sisters, Tina Longerbeam and Shirley Jones; and one brother, Ronnie Longerbeam. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Wallace Longerbeam and Donald Longerbeam; and three sisters, Goldie Longerbeam, Phyllis Dunn, and Ruth Hopkins.
