Paula passed away at the Broadview Memorial Hospital, after a one-year battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving parents, Eleanora (nee Zorn) and Ervin Wolfe Sr. of Grenfell; her brother, Ervin Wolfe Jr. (Bev) of Regina; as well as numerous cousins and friends.
After graduating with honours from Grenfell High School, Paula went on to receive a double degree – Bachelors of Education and Arts – as well as a Masters of Education at the University of Regina. Being the brave adventurous person, she was, Paula left the homeland and family she loved to earn a PhD of Philosophy from Arizona State University. Her life was dedicated to the research and teaching of English as a second language. Her passion was ensuring that all adolescents, regardless of race or societal standing, receive a proper education.
Paula loved cats and was forever taking in the ones no one else wanted. She also loved Canada, although she left it behind, it was never far from her thoughts. She kept in constant contact with her parents in Grenfell, as they were never far from her thoughts either. Paula loved talking (arguing) politics with her father and brother.
Paula was an adventurer, she travelled to many different countries, continually researching and embracing their cultures. She has been all over the United States, Mexico and Canada as well as Brazil, Taiwan, Thailand, Greece, Italy and India. Paula brought back may precious mementos from those trips.
In the fall of 2019, Paula’s scheduled trip to Israel was cancelled when she was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Once again, Paula bravely left her life behind, moved back to Saskatchewan for treatment and to be with her family. During chemo treatment, Paula kept busy with little projects around the acreage, playing out her Mom and Dad. A couple of projects she left behind were a rainbow boardwalk and a fairy garden, which will both be cherished for years to come.
Even though Paula passed away in hospice care, her mother devotedly cared for her at their home in Grenfell. Paula spent less that a day in Broadview, for that we are grateful. We were so fortunate to have had Paula with us in the final months of her life. She is now at peace and free from pain. She will forever be in our hearts.
