Paulene Eleanor (Roth) Hines-Gove was born on December 13, 1928 in Winner, South Dakota to Frank and Dorothy Roth. The family later moved to Gordon, NE where Paulene attended school and was proud to have been a drum majorette. She married Dwaine Goshorn and to this union was born Sanford Goshorn. After high school she attended beauty college in California. She later moved to Oshkosh, where she met and married William Hines. To this union William Jr. and Dawn were born. While raising her children she owned and operated Paulene’s Beauty Shop in Oshkosh for over 30 years. She later married Franklyn Gove in Lisco. After his death in 1999 and in the face of her declining health she moved to Kearney to live with her son, Bill. In 2002, she moved to California to live with her granddaughter, Jennifer, and then moved to Seattle with them and lived until she returned to Oshkosh and entered the nursing home where she spent the remainder of her life.
Paulene enjoyed dancing and gave lessons. She enjoyed slalom waterskiing, travelling, especially to the Caribbean, hunting, fishing, playing horse shoes and was a very gifted bowler and golfer. She bowled and won at regional and state tournaments and sponsored her beauty shop’s team. Later in life she took up the game of golf which soon became her passion and consumed a great deal of her time as she always went after sports with a vengeance, since childhood.
