Pauline (Novick) Flaxer entered eternal rest on May 26, 2021 after a long and accomplished life.
She was born on March 30, 1925 in Salem, the daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Novick, and sister of Harold, Louis and Irving Novick. Pauline was happily married to David Joseph Flaxer on April 4, 1948, until his passing in 1988. She was a graduate of Salem State College, and obtained her JD from New England School of Law in 1966 as class Valedictorian. She carried on an active law practice with her husband.
In addition to being a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Pauline was a life-long learner, who enjoyed and appreciated literature, history, travel and music. She was a woman of faith, passing down strong Jewish traditions to her family. She is survived by her three children William and his wife Amy of Peabody, Joan (Nagler) and her husband Mel of Newburyport, and Jonathan and his wife Linda of Scarsdale, New York, as well as seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and her extended loving family.
Due to regulations imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, a private graveside service will be held at Sons of Jacob Cemetery in Danvers.
