Following thier marriage they moved to Salem, WI where they raised their two sons, Steven & Paul. Many wonderful memories were made at thier home, attending block parties and turning neighbors into family, such as the Pelech & Stockwell Families.

Paula’s spirit was one of kindness and helping others made her happy. She was very active with her church, attending services and helping out with senior bible studies.

    Melva Stockwell wrote a sympathy message
    “We are so saddened to hear of your loss. When I saw her this Summer she was so happy to tell me how much she was enjoying life now. As usual she was helping me, finding me a mechanic to replace my transmission. She was a special woman, who faced tough challenges head on with faith! When you all need a hug, just call, Marty and I will be happy to be there for you!”

  • Kimberly & Bradley Hughes says:

    We can’t say enough how sorry we are for your loss. She will be missed. I enjoyed your mom and I conversations at family functions. Brad always said “Paula is truly a kind women and an open book”. She truly had a soft loving side that she shared freely and openly.

  • Pelech Family says:

    Many fond memories in Salem, WI! Paula was always involved in helping improve our little community. Her kindness and can do attitude helped her overcome the loss of husband Bill at far too young of an age. She quickly stepped up and continued raising two fine young men who are each now prospering with strong families! Paula will be missed!

  • Tara Kolkeena says:

    We met the Kaisers around 1998. My parents and them were foster parents in Kenosha County and they were heavily involved in USANA. I remember once sometimes twice a year they would travel to the USANA seminars and team building promotional events and those working trips actually made for great vacations for them! Other family’s we knew in common also attended, trips to Cancun, Salt Lake City and I think they all went to Vegas one year and they all had a memorable and great time!

    We lost touch with Paula when we moved to Tennessee in 2002. Unfortunately the previous year did a number on both of our family’s that was the year she lost Bill and that was the year my parents divorced, sold the house and moved out of state. Even though I was 12 or 13 when I saw her last, I remember her being as fine and decent as they come. She was very hospitable, very generous and kind! Often would worry about others and put others before herself. I will remember this sweet lady fondly and with a smile. I take solace in the fact that Paula and Bill are together again. She missed him so much!

    My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She was a real gem! I’m so sorry for your loss and she will be sorely missed!!

  • Paula was such a friendly person whom I only met at our church, Faith. Very sincere and always a smile. She will be missed.
