Graveside services for Paula L. Ericksen, 95, of Coos Bay will be held at 10:00 am, Friday, June 30 at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland.

Paula was born March 14, 1922 in Astoria.  She passed away June 25, 2017 in Coos Bay. 

She enjoyed sharing many interesting stories of her life as a lighthouse keeper’s daughter … followed by frequent travels from coast to coast during married/family life.  Her husband, Earl, spent 30 years with the US Coast Guard, retiring to Coos Bay.  Paula spent her final years at Ocean Ridge Assisted Living, where she enjoyed and appreciated the loving care provided by their dedicated caregivers, and hospice care.      

Paula is survived by her daughters, Janice (Bill) Green and Patricia (Bob) Sevier; grandchildren, Susan McEvoy, Michael (Nicole) Green, and Andrew Sevier; great-grandson, Isaac McEvoy; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Earl A. Ericksen, and her siblings, Al Harris, Pat Hinderlie,  

and Ronald Harris.  Today, Paula is with her loved ones again … in the presence of her Savior.
