Darleen Paulson

March 27, 1951 — January 31, 2016

Darleen Paulson, 64, Wahpeton, ND passed away on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at her residence under the care of Red River Human Services and CHI St. Francis Hospice. The funeral service will be Friday, February 5, 2016 at 11:00 AM at Willow Creek Chapel, Wahpeton, ND with Rev. Erika Buller officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the chapel. Interment will be at Riverside Cemetery, Fargo, ND. Arrangements are entrusted to Vertin-Munson Funeral Home, Wahpeton, ND.

Darleen was born on March 27, 1951 in Fargo, ND to Ernest and Helen (Dahley) Paulson. She attended FM Opportunity School as a child and lived at home until 1995 when she moved to Wahpeton, ND and became a resident of the Red River Human Services Foundation group home at 348 14th Street North.

At 348, Darleen took pride in earning a paycheck and carrying her own checkbook. She was a member of the local Red Hat Society and looked forward to attending their meetings. She was a firm believer in the Red Hat Motto, "Dessert First". Darleen was also a fan of the Hallmark Company and insisted that all her cards carry the Hallmark logo. Her most thrilling vacation was a trip to the company's first Hallmark Store in Kansas City, Missouri.

When Darleen retired in 2009 she moved to the Red River Human Services Foundation Congregate Care Home where she enjoyed a more leisurely lifestyle and the excellent care provided by kind and dedicated staff.

Darleen is survived by her sisters, Marlys (Clifford) Cornelius, Fargo, ND, Shari (Donald) Haberlach, Moorhead, MN; her nieces and nephew, Jenny (Chad) Danielson, Johanna Cornelius, John (Samantha) Haberlach, Laura (Eric) Hilber, Rachel (Jerron) Gustofson, and eight great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ernie and Helen Paulson.

The family would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to Barb Crabtree and to the amazing staff at Red River Valley Human Services Foundation whose loving care and concern made Darleen's life so much richer.
