Carolyn L. Paulson was born on January 16, 1941, in Gonvick, MN, the daughter of Carl and Mabel (Berg) Larson. Following her high school graduation in 1959, Carolyn entered Bemidji State University, graduating with a degree in teaching. She taught in Ashby, MN from 1963 to 1965, after which she began teaching in Plummer, MN. It was there that she met and fell in love with Richard "Dick" Paulson and they were married on July 29, 1967. In 1970, they moved to Freeborn, MN, and made their home there until 2002. At the time of Dick's retirement they moved to Ortonville to live near their son, John.

After moving to Freeborn, Carolyn was a full-time substitute teacher. She was a member of the Freeborn UCC Church. Carolyn was an avid reader and enjoyed crossword puzzles. The family long-time pet cat, Sabrina, held an extra special place in her heart.

Left with her loving memory is her son, John Paulson, of Ortonville, MN, as well as many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Dick, in December of 2012.
