PAULA ANN DOSEN, age 60, of Fort Wayne, gained her angel wings on May 4, 2014. Paula was born in Columbia City, IN to Robert and Virginia Clay on July 22, 1953. She grew up in Fort Wayne, IN and graduated from North Side High School. She found great pride and joy in raising her two children, Andrea and Jacob. Paula possessed an amazing love for her family and friends. Paula's greatest life roles were being a daughter, sister, mom, aunt, and grandmother.

Paula dedicated over 25 years to Fort Financial Credit Union. She enjoyed traveling, especially to warm places, painting and crafting, was an avid reader, and loved being outside. Paula was able to see the world on her doorstep through her Russian daughter, Oksana and her beloved exchange students. She always had a witty comeback and would give her last dollar to anyone who needed it. She touched many lives and will be greatly missed by those who knew her. Visitation will be held at C.M. Sloan and Sons Funeral Home, 1327 N. Wells St. on Friday, May 9, 2014 from 2-4pm and 6-8pm. A memorial service will be held at C.M. Sloan and Sons Funeral Home, 1327 N.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Visiting Nurse & Hospice Home, Lutheran Hospital Staff, Heartland Hospice and C.M. Sloan and Sons Funeral Home. Be kind, love one another, and look for ladybugs.
