Catherine Edens was born in Germany on March 11th, 1839 and came to this country with her parents when a child. She is one of the pioneer settlers of the town of New Holstein and spent her girlhood days assisting her parents on their farm. Some sixty years ago she was joined in marriage to the late August Paulsen and lived with him on a farm south of the village of New Holstein. Her husband died some thirty years ago and she continued to live on the homestead until 1894 when she disposed of it moving to Kiel for a short period and then to Elkhart Lake which has since been her home.
Mrs. Paulsen was a woman of sterling traits of character and was recognized as one of the prominent citizens of the community in which she lived since childhood. She was an excellent wife and mother, a good neighbor and a true friend. Her home was one of refinement and in it she dispensed the genuine hospitality for which the pioneer settlers were noted to all who came.
She leaves surviving , three daughters. Mrs. W. A Pinnow, Mrs. Walter Stark of this city, Mrs. George A. Kraemer of Elkhart Lake, and two sons, August of Kiel, and Arthur of Milwaukee
