Carol Lee (nee Olson) Paulus of New Richmond, WI, left this world peacefully in her sleep on Monday, August 28, 2017. She joins daughter, Missy, who preceded her in death July 2011. She leaves behind companion, Aaron Fugere; son, Jeremy “Jay;” daughter, Shannon; son-in-law, Doug Haynes; faithful canine, Abba and many dear and faithful friends she met along life’s journey. Aaron would like to acknowledge the care Carol received in her final days from Lakeview Hospice, especially Wendy, Amanda, Jubi, and Jo. Carol planned years ago to donate her body to the University of Minnesota. In accordance with her wishes, there will be no formal funeral arrangements. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate in Carol’s name to either Gregory’s Gift of Hope (ggohinc.com) or Lakeview Homecare & Hospice (1715 Tower Drive West Suite 330, Stillwater, MN 55082).
