Paula Kay Boden was born the youngest of three children to Frank and Veronica Boden on May 25, 1937. She grew up in a simple, fun, but faith-filled hard working home. As children, she and her older siblings, Bob and Peggy, learned chores came first and the neighborhood friends and games followed. She often spoke of the long jump, high jump, roller skating and ball games all played in their yard with neighborhood friends. Having a paper route, responsibility and work ethic were gained. Paula took piano lessons, which became a pastime that was enjoyed for many years. Raneys Drug Store was where she could be found after school and on weekends, working for Frank Schulte. She worked at the Guaranty State Bank in Beloit for three years before marrying her high school sweetheart. Her first date with Harry was at a polka dance in Tipton, KS. They were married on January 28, 1957, and remained in Tipton, where Graig, Greta, Amy and Heidi completed the family tree. Moving to Lincoln in 1972, Paula started her working career as a secretary and then waitressing at local restaurants. After being contacted by a local pharmacy, she spent the remainder of her working career as a pharmacy clerk. Faith was important to her, and there were high expectations for her children as well as grandchildren. Praying the rosary, attending daily Mass and lighting candles were expressions of her steadfast faith in every facet of her life. Equal to her faith was her love for her husband, children and grandchildren.
