Paulson, Delbert Raymond

Delbert Raymond Paulson was born to Art Paulson and Allida Hage on Feb. 16, 1921 at Claresholm.
Delbert spent his early years on the family farm 6 1/2 miles east of Granum. Delbert attended the Starline school for the beginning of his education, and finished his high school at Miami High in Florida. Upon his return to Alberta, Del went to Olds Agricultural College where he obtained his certificate in heavy duty mechanics.
Del met and married Frances Westhaver of Fort Macleod on Dec. 17, 1949, and they lived at Claresholm. Due to Del’s job as a grain buyer for Alberta Wheat Pool they moved around a great deal, and in 1962 moved their family to Lynnwood, Washington. They returned home to Canada in 1967, and Del worked for Safeway Shelter Systems, and then for the Provincial Building until he retired in 1983.
Sadly, Fran became ill, and after a short battle with cancer passed away in 1985.
Del was so fortunate to find love again, and married Rosemary Myers (Brown) in 1986, and they resided at Woodhouse until due to illness, Rosemary moved to the Willow Creek Auxiliary Hospital, where she passed away in the spring 2010.
Del moved to Porcupine Hills Lodge in Claresholm until his illness necessitated his move to Rosewood Villa where he resided until his passing.
Del was predeceased by his father and mother Art and Allida Paulson; his brother Mervin; his sisters Irene Matson, and Gloria Sandberg; and beloved grandson Dorian Kelly.
Del is survived by his loving children Murray (Joanne) Paulson, Connie (John) Barnes, Debbie (Chris) Kelly and Judy (Murray) Sontag and grandchildren; great grandchildren; a great, great grandson; his sisters Dorothy Williams of Surrey, B.C. and Arlene Lawrence of Oliver, B.C.; and his brother Floyd Paulson of Trail, B.C.
