Marion Louise was born to Harold and Eleanor (Andreasen) Johnson on December 9, 1942 in Sheridan County, Montana. She was raised in Westby, Montana. Marion met and married the love of her life, Roger Paulsen, on December 13, 1962. They had 4 children, Rick, Randy, Mike and Terri. Marion and Roger were celebrating 56 years of marriage.
She cherished the time she could spend with her family and her love for animals was obvious. Every child that walked through her door was her “kid”, and they were well taken care of. Her passion was cooking for her family as well as others. Sitting around at the table, food, family and fellowship was something she looked forward to and you didn’t get out the door unless you ate something first.
Marion loved challenging others at cards and a good game of dice, anything to get together with others. She had a bubbly personality, contagious laugh, a great sense of humor and an extremely kind heart and would do anything to help someone in need. Her religion was very important to her. She had a great love and belief in Jehovah and the mighty things he can do.
Marion wasn’t just a housewife – she was the ring leader of our family circus.
Marion is survived by her husband, Roger; sons, Rick (Shannon) Paulsen, Randy (Leah) Paulsen, Mike (Tracey) Paulsen; daughter, Terri Poff; grandchildren, Shannon and Cody Paulsen, Kylie Holter, Zach Talbot, Jessy Paulsen, Courtney Moran, Tyler Paulsen and Dalton Poff; great-grandchildren, Emerson and Eva Paulsen; brothers, Dick (Doreen) Johnson of Westby, MT, Carl (LaVonne) Johnson of Butte, MT, Keith Johnson of Salt Lake City, UT; sisters, Carol Christianson of Williston, ND, Betty (Ronnie) Boucher of Puyallup, WA, Kathy (Mike) Lynch of Great Falls, MT, Cindy (Robert) Sanderson, Galesburg, ND.
