Paula Walthorn, age 75, of Sheridan, passed away on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at Arbor Grove Assisted Living in Alma.
Paula loved to work and spend time with kids, who most often called her “Nana”. She did this as a nurse and later as a volunteer for many years at Central Montcalm Elementary. She enjoyed playing the piano and doing arts and crafts. However, most of all, Paula loved her family and spending time with them.
Surviving Paula are her children, Shelley (Rich) Whitacre of Sheridan and Jeff Walthorn of Crystal; grandchildren, Lacey Brayton (Trimell Hawkins) of Comstock Park, Lexie (Chad) Stevens of Frederic, Tiana Whitacre of Sheridan; great grandchildren, Tsion, Jaysin, Terrell, Terrance, Maya, Carson, Jordyn, Jaycie, and Brock; sister, Deb (Pat) Stratton of Edmore; brother, Dennis (Sabrina) McQueen of Edwardsburg.
Paula was preceded in death by her parents, Kenneth and Gladys McQueen and her husband, Gary Walthorn.
A celebration of Paula’s life is being planned for a later date.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests you make a memorial donation in Paula’s memory to the Brady Sexton Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 128, Stanton, MI 48888.
