Pauline Ann Bosak, 86, of Moorhead, MN, died Friday, January 8, 2021, peacefully at Serenity Assisted Living and Memory Care, surrounded by her family.

Pauline, daughter of Paul and Freda (Knutson) Euren was born June 2, 1934, in Moorhead. She graduated from Moorhead High School where she played the bass drum in the marching band. She went on to be a nurse aide at St. Ansgar Hospital in Moorhead until she wed.

Pauline married Harold Bosak on May 29, 1959, at St. Joseph parish. Harold always referred to her as his "1st Wife." Harold and Pauline attended sporting events (all sports) together for over fifty years. Whether it was their 8 T's, grandchildren, or friends that competed, they enjoyed encouraging the players. For over forty years, Harold and Pauline enjoyed time at their cabin on Turtle Lake near Lake Park, MN. Family and friends were always welcome.

Pauline was a long-time member of St. Joseph parish in Moorhead. Her passion was decorating the church with flowers and plants, and all the holidays, especially Christmas. Harold and Pauline took care of coffee and rolls after church for fellowship. She was the coordinator for the funeral receptions and was on numerous committees throughout the years. Christian Mothers and Catholic Daughters were favorite groups she enjoyed being a part of. Harold and Pauline received the Bishop's Medal for their more than fifty-three years of dedicated service to the parish. Another passion of Pauline's was her work in ceramics, both creating art pieces and teaching others this craft.

Pauline was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Bosak; parents, Paul and Freda Euren; and grandson, Michael Livdahl.

Pauline is survived by her children, "The 8 T's," Tamara Bosak-Frolek, Tracye (Rollin) Grefsrud, Teri (James) Dobbs, Timothy, Tanya (Robert) Livdahl, Ted, Tate (Maria), and Tricia (David) Bovkoon; nineteen grandchildren, Alexandra and Nicholas Frolek, Jake (Laura), Ethan and Katie Grefsrud, Henry (Paige Rygg) and Emily Dobbs, Dylan (Sarah), Logan, Elliott, and Jared Bosak, Anthony and Donnie Loegering, Christopher Livdahl, Terry Griffiths, Charlee Bosak and Casey (Tracy), Sadie and Shaylie Bovkoon; and four great-grandchildren, Uriah and Micah Bosak, Kolton and Kellen Bovkoon.
