PAULA W. GREEN 86, Passed away peacefully on October 23, 2007. She was born Paula Joanne White on May 8, 1921 in Susanville, Ca, the oldest of two daughters of Pauline Whittemore of Texas and John Calvin White of North Carolina, an electrical engineer. She graduated from Lowell High School in San Francisco with a full scholarship to Stanford University, however, chose to attend Business College in San Francisco. Upon graduation she began her career as a legal secretary with a local law firm. During World War II Paula enjoyed being a USO hostess, and met Gerald (Jerry) Paul Green of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, whom she married in December, 1944. Jerry was a World War II veteran, serving in the Navy in the Pacific Region. Paula continued her profession until the birth of their first daughter, and returned to work for the next thirty-five years after her twin sons entered elementary school. Paula is remembered as a loving mother who despite her workload always made special time to create imaginative activities with her children. As an avid reader and student of Latin, she took pride in her mastery of the English language. Being raised in San Francisco suited Paula well as she never found the need to drive, enjoyed public transportation and loved spending time with her children in Golden Gate Park. Paula is predeceased by her husband, Jerry of thirty-two years, and her sister, Elizabeth White Rasmusen. She is survived by her daughter, Julie C. Foisy and son-in-law, William A.
