Paula Mae Crose

October 12, 1955 ~ November 12, 2019 (age 64)


After an extended illness and couragous fight, Paula May Crose is flying with the angels in heaven on November 12, 2019.  She was born October 12, 1955 to Nora Circle Crose (deceased) and Paul James Crose (deceased) in Muncie, Indiana. She was preceded in death by brother; William (Bill) Crose and sisters; Darlene Shocker and Debbie Ralph.  She is survived by sisters; Carolyn Sue Crose and Ruby Bishop, nieces; Candy Martin, Becky O'Neill, Kathy Smith, Penny Dean, Kelly Crose Smith, Melissa Westlake and nephews; Dan Minnick, Carl Minnick, Howard Minnick, Roger Gillespie, Billy Crose, Scott Crose and Timothy Ralph.  Her children were her animals; Sophia, Bug, Tuey, Skooch and Sweetie.  She graduated from Fordsville High School in Fordsville, Ky and had many friends.

Paula was an avid fisherwoman, incredible artist, singer/songwriter and author of book-worthy poetry.  She loved collecting anything and everything.  She will be remembered for many things, but above all for her courage, strength and desire to fight her many challenges.  You will be missed.

She will be cremated and there will be a Celebration of Life in the Spring of 2020.  Family will be notified of arrangements at a later date.
