Paula Louise Park-Brown was born in Osceola, Missouri on April 3, 1958. The fourth child and first daughter of eleven children, lovingly known to her family as “Sissy”. She passed away on January 16, 2019.
She graduated from Roscoe Elementary School and Osceola High School in 1976. After school, she worked for the Rival Manufacturing Company in Clinton, Missouri for 18 years. She loved making a home for Tom, Angela and especially her grandchildren, whom they affectionately called “Mam-moo” and “Me-Ma”. The special moments they shared as a family will be cherished forever.
Paula looked forward to times spent with the Foster family on the farm in the Clinton/Tightwad, Missouri area. She enjoyed being outdoors, fishing with her best friend and sister Dana; reminiscing with her sister Connie were special moments shared only by sisters. Until the very end, “Sissy” will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
