Paula Ann Greene

July 3, 1941 — November 1, 2023

Filer, Idaho

 

Paula Ann Greene, a resident of Filer, Idaho, passed away on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, at the age of 82.  She often said, “Mark, I promise I’m not trying to live until I’m 100”, although we were convinced she could do just that.  We are saddened by her passing, but also happy to know that she will no longer endure any more health challenges.

Paula was born on July 3, 1941 to Audrey and Pauline Apperson in Lubbock, Texas.  The family moved to Abernathy, and it was there that she eventually met her soul mate and husband, Bill Greene.  They were married on December 3, 1960 and celebrated 60 years together until his passing in January 2021.  We imagine a great reunion occurred with her loving husband and family that passed before her.  Paula was blessed with three children while living in Texas, Rhonda, Alan, and Mark.  With much reservation, they eventually left Texas for Meridian, Idaho where they met lifelong friends, Herman and Shirley Pope, through the Meridian Church of Christ.  They all became family and Idaho was their forever home.

Paula was a devout member of the Church of Christ and loved her savior.  She had a fierce knowledge of the Bible and love for the fellowship with her Christian family.  She would often teach lessons for Bible study or lead the group meetings at her home or other member’s homes.  She was always so happy when the ladies would come pick her up for the Sunday singing.  She had a beautiful singing voice and it was well known how she would lead the congregation in song.  She loved every opportunity to listen and sing along.  Paula was always studying and learning, whether she could physically attend church, or just over the phone as a conference church service, or watching the services over the internet, something that she learned from Tina and Angela.  The house would be filled with loud hymns and songs of faith.  Nothing would make her happier.  Thank you to all the ladies that made her a special part of this group as her health declined.

Paula proudly raised her children before she joined the workforce.  She worked for the Bon Marche in Twin Falls for a few years until she found her home at the College of Southern Idaho.  She retired as a registrar in the Vocational department.  She was loved by the staff and students and was known for her kindness and humor.   While at CSI, she was very involved in the athletic activities as a Booster Member for many years, as well as managing the concession stands back in the early 1990s.  She loved watching the teams play volleyball, basketball, and baseball with her Bumblebee Ladies, Connie Hardy and Sandy Golay, and many more after that.  She loved you all dearly.  Many trips were taken to the away games or tournaments, and she loved every minute of it.  Eventually her health wouldn’t allow her to be as involved, but she was always cheering for CSI.  After Paula’s retirement from the College of Southern Idaho, she and Bill picked up their house (literally) and moved it to their farm in Filer, of which they were extremely proud.  They loved the farm life and solitude.

              Despite all the adversities Paula had in her life, she was the most positive person you could ever meet.  She was more concerned about the people around her than herself, no matter how much she may be struggling.  She was always happy, funny, and kind.  She loved to cook and host big gatherings.  There were so many quilts cut and tied to donate. There wasn’t a crossword puzzle she couldn’t master.  She could tell the best stories, all of them true from her life experiences.  She was just the best person.   We send a special Thank You to Lisa Harris for the weekly care you provided Paula.  She loved you with all her heart.

Paula is survived by her children, Rhonda, William Alan, and Mark (Debbie) as well as ten grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.  Her family and friends will miss her terribly but takes solace in the many good memories they have of their mother, grandmother, and friend.  We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Heritage Home Health & Hospice staff, especially Lisa Taylor and Karla Villafana, for the care they provided to Paula, as well as her primary physician, Dr. Anne Fullmer.

Services will be held on Saturday, November 11th at Rosenau Funeral Home in Twin Falls with a viewing at 10:00 am and services to follow at 11:00 am.  Interment will be held at Sunset Memorial Park following the service.
