MRS. PAUL (ANNA) PAULSON
Mrs. Paul Paulson, Long-time Resident of Gully Vicinity, Dies
(13 Towns, May 4, 1945, p1)
Funeral Services Held in Lund's Church on Monday
Ranks of the pioneers of the Gully community were again thinned by the death of one of its best known residents, Mrs. Paul Paulsen, who passed away at the age of 73 years Friday at the Fosston Hospital after an extended illness.
Her condition was critical for more than a week and death was not unexpected. The body was taken to Gonvick and later removed to Gully where funeral services were held at 2 o'clock Monday at Lund's Lutheran Church, of which she was a charter member and also of the affiliated organizations – Ladies Aid and Luther League.
The funeral address was delivered by Rev. M.E. Arneson before a large assemblage of relatives, friends, and neighbors. Active pallbearers were Anton Haugen, Bernt Sorenson, Halvor Kjensmo, Ben Brekke, L.H. Aos and Henry Berg. Interment was made in Lund's cemetery.
Mrs. Paulsen had resided in Eden Township since 1896 – the year when she and her husband came with early settlers and located on the homestead that was destined to be her home for nearly 50 years. Previous to her extended residence in the vicinity of Gully, she had lived at Buxton and other points in North Dakota.
Before her marriage to Mr. Paulson August 19, 1890, at Hillsboro, N.D., she was Anna Maria Vang, born Sept. 9, 1871, in Fillmore county, Minn. As a child she was baptized and confirmed in the Norwegian Lutheran Church. In its affairs she was active for a long period of years or until illness made inroads in her health.
She was the mother of ten children, four of whom were summoned before her. The surviving members of the family besides the husband are (Lizzie) Mrs. Charles Hovland, Climax, Minn.; (Esther) Mrs. Severt Bagne, Gonvick; (Gladys) Mrs. C.M. Owens, Spokane, Wash.; (Myrtle) Mrs. Lawrence Haugen, Bemidji; Clifford and Manly of Gully.
Other survivors include eleven grandchildren, three great grandchildren; also a sister, Mrs. Clarence Gordon of Hillsboro, N.D., and two brothers, Edwin of Hillsboro and Albert Vang of Bemidji.
