Anita Mae Paulsen, 76, of South Sioux City, NE passed away on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at her residence, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Anita was born on June 10, 1941 in Carroll, NE, the daughter of Rudolph and Alta (Blecke) Lorenzen. She married Lester Paulsen on December 17, 1961. They were blessed with 4 children.
Anita loved being a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Survivors include her children, Debra (Tom) McKenzie of Sioux City, IA, Larry (Melodie) Paulsen of Rapid City, SD, David Paulsen of South Sioux City, NE and Linda (John) Lukecart of Omaha, NE; 8 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Donna (Merle) Roeber of Wayne, NE.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Lester, Paulsen; her parents; a brother; and a grandson.
I believe that Sometimes God puts people on this planet to teach us how to love. I believe that Anita was one of those special people. Rest well Anita.
We are so saddened at the loss of this dear lady. She will always be remembered as grandma teacher. When we first met her at Cornerstone World Outreach some 30 years ago. Our son Dustin asked her if she would be his grandma. And of course she said yes. She was a very loving and godly woman. She will be dearly missed. This is just a temporary goodbye Anita. We love you.
