Pauline Marie Brorman was born March 18, 1930, in Hereford, TX to Henry Brorman and Anna Wiedenhaus and grew up as a member of St. Anthony’s Parish in Hereford and a student of their Catholic school. She entered Religious Life in Santa Fe, New Mexico on January 30, 1948. She received a BA in Education from Incarnate Word College in San Antonio and a number of certificates in Religious Studies. Her ministry as a Sister was mostly in Catholic Schools, as teacher and/or principal, in Amarillo, Hereford, Plainview and Long Beach. After retiring from Catholic Schools, she served in Parish ministry where she was instrumental in helping both youth and adults grow in their Catholic faith.

Sr. Pauline was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Anne Brorman and her stepmother Caroline Brorman; and her siblings, Joe Brorman, James Brorman, Harry Brorman, Annie Hebert, and Louise Spinhirne.

Pauline is survived by a loving brother and sister, Alphonse Brorman and Delores Frerich.

As a member of St. Francis Mission Community, Pauline was a source of creativity and joy. She would always come up with an unexpected humorous production to present to us at our special celebrations. She will be remembered for the smiles she put on our faces and the excitement for learning she gave to her children in her classroom. She loved being a teacher and it showed in her students who loved being in her classroom.

We are grateful for her life, her giftedness and all she shared with her Family, Religious Community and God’s people.

  1. Sister Pauline taught my husband RCIA and he joined the church in 2004. He loved her and was glad to have her as his teacher. She has since been a loving and sweet friend or our family. My granddaughter was special to her. She visited Sr. Pauline many times for advice. She was always up for a good cup of coffee and the latest news. Visited her in Plainview and Lubbock. I will miss her dearly. God got a new and lively angel.

  2. Sr. Pauline was the principal at my elementary school. She, and all of the Franciscan nuns, were great teachers and wonderful human beings. They provided a great example to follow. RIP Sister Pauline and my condolences to her family.

  3. My family’s condolences to the Brorman family.

    We are descendants of the John William Kuhles and Gertrude Frische Kuhles family. Sister Pauline’s parents and stepmother would visit them at their home on South Osage in Amarillo.

    Our Mom was their oldest daughter – Eugenia Bernadine Kuhles Bryant (1924-2006). When I was home, I heard her on several occasions ask different people about Sister Pauline. I don’t really know her connection to Sister Pauline – but I know she was persistent in inquiring about her.

    As I was growing up, I do remember the Brormans coming to visit my grandparents. Lots of German and lots of laughing!

    Prayers of peace and comfort to your family.
