Mrs. Slaney's late husband, Alonzo, who passed away in 1995 always attended games and enjoyed the game of soccer. After Alonzo's death, Pauline felt it would be fitting to remember him by dedicating an award in the Minor program in his memory and she continues to sponsor this award every year.

She has supported her own brothers - Bud Loder, Leo Loder , Jim Loder and Ted Loder as they fought for the fame in the 1970's,80's and 90's. She has always supported her own children on the field, Joe, Dessie, Leo, Rich, Cathy and Lil and did whatever she could to get them to games including slipping them a few dollars when traveling out of town.
Now, in her Senior Years, she still attends the games to watch her grandchildren, Richard Kelly, Lucas Slaney, Paula Marie Kelly, and Megan Slaney when they are competing. She still enjoys every game of soccer in spite of who wins or looses.
