Yes, yes the rumor is true. At Rainbow Hospice Care Inpatient Center in Johnson Creek on November 23, 2016, I croaked, kicked the bucket, oh okay, I died. Well, that is not exactly true, my body died but my soul made a beeline straight into heaven. And at this very moment I am basking in the love of my lord and savior, Jesus. No more pain, no more tears, just an eternity of peace and joy.

Jesus, thank you, thank you, thank you for the cross!

To my sister, Patricia Sullivan and my niece, Maureen Rose, thank you for making my soul’s escape as peaceful as was humanly possible. Love and kisses.

To my gal pals in California, Becky Clark and April Thomas, thanks for 30 years of friendship all through laughter and tears. Love you both very much.

Here in Wisconsin, to Yvonne and David Carl my wonderful Christian friends, I called, you came, you did. Both a real treasure.

To the cat lady, thank you for a morning of joy with the babies – made my day!

To the rest of my family and friends, thanks for the visits and phone calls – enjoyed all of it.

If anyone would like to do anything in memory of me, please consider a donation to Touched By A Paw in Whitewater or Humane Society of Jefferson County. These are good people, doing good work for God’s creatures.

This about sums it up. Bye, bye.

Paula was preceded in her final journey by her husband of 39 years, William “Bill” Lindmeier and her parents, Carlo and Lillian Simeone, all long time residents of California before coming to Fort Atkinson.

The Dunlap Memorial Home in Fort Atkinson is assisting the family.
