DEAR ABBY DEATH The truth about the life of Pauline Friedman
She was a great one.....Pauline Friedman was born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1918. One day as a bored housewife she called the San Francisco Chronicle and said she could do better than the advice columnist they had. The Editor gave her a stack of back issues and told her to compose her own replies and he’d look at them. She got the job, it paid $20 a week. Today her column appears in 1,400 newspapers with a readership in print & online of more than 100 million. You know her as Dear Abby. She died at 94 on January 16th, 2012. Dear Abby was a great one.
