Camp Tukaway is a campground in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside Blacksburg, Va., and is affiliated with Charis Fellowship (Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches) congregations in that region. Recently, Roy Glass, camp manager and director, noted the passing of Pauline Bolling, who had been instrumental in the founding of the camp. Below is a post from the Camp Tukaway Facebook page, along with Pauline’s obituary.
Our official name is Bolling Conference Grounds Inc. We are named after the family that gave the original land for the camp. They have been the biggest supporters of the camp over the years. Ernest and Pauline had both served on the Board at different times over the years. Ernest passed away a number of years ago. Today Pauline joined her husband in glory. We can honestly say that without their faithfulness both in their original gift of land and their financial support over the years, we would not be here today. Thank you Pauline for your faithful support. You truly have been a blessing to this ministry. Lives have been changed for eternity because of your willingness to be used by God. — from the Camp Tukaway Facebook page.
Pauline Robinson Bolling, age 88 went home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 20.
She was preceded in death by her husband Ernest Bolling, and her son Ernest Bolling Jr. She is survived by her son Jim Bolling, granddaughter and grandson-in-law Sheri and Kevin Weaver, granddaughter and grandson-in-law Melisa and Jeff Hobrath, and 5 great grandchildren Hannah, Justin and Trent Weaver and Brady and Brock Badillo. She is also survived by her step sister June Murphy, half brother Jack Bradley and wife Shirley, half brother John Bradley, a special nephew Larry Fraley and wife Jolene, cousin Macalene Shelton and close friends Earl and Jean Worley as well as Derrick Willis and David Feazell.
Pauline and Ernest came to know the Lord during a home visit with Pastor Bill Byers. They were the owners of Structural Steel Company for 60 years. Pauline loved people and loved to laugh, and she was known for her generous, giving spirit and her strong character. She was dearly loved by many and will be missed, but her loved ones take comfort in knowing that she is with her Savior.
The viewing will be held Friday November 24 from 6 to 8 pm with the funeral service on Saturday November 25 at noon. Both will be held at Oakey’s North Chapel on Peters Creek Road.
