Funeral services were held last Thursday at Price Funeral Chapel in Pullayup for Mrs. Elsie May Paulson, 56, rt 3, box 2350, Sumner, who died in an automobile accident Aug 23 on highway 99 near Federal Way.

Employed in a real estate office, she was on her way to work at Puget Sound Homes when the accident occurred. She was born in Derby, Kan., Feb. 6, 1909, and lived most of her life in Olympia where she and her husband Martin operated Paulson's Salon from 1935 to 1953. They moved to Centralia and operated a cattle ranch from 1953 to 1956, then to Burien where she taught in the Highline school district. In May 1963 they moved to route 3, Sumner. Her husband died that year.

Surviving is one son, Frederick M. Paulson of Salt Lake City, Utah; one daughter, Elsie May Paulson of the home; one sister, Mrs. Donald Wadleigh of Des Moines, Wash.; a brother, G. H. Canfield of Tacoma, and three grandchildren.

The service at the funeral home was conducted by Bishop Dalles Zellinger of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
