Age 72, our loving wife, mother, and grandmother was called home to the Lord on January 28, 2019. Paula was preceded in death by her mother, Virginia “Deana” Rae; father, Robert Rae and sister, Roberta Rae. Paula leaves behind her grateful husband of 32 years, Tim; her daughter, Kimberly (Joel) Smith; son, Robert (Diane) McKinney; stepson, Michael (Lisa) Kelley; 5 grandchildren, Carlie & Jessica Smith, Sam & Allison McKinney, and Lola Kelley; sister, Carol (Barry) Inklebarger; brother, Daniel (Sandy) Rae; and many other family members and friends. She leaves behind also a legacy of kindness, compassion, and humor that touched the lives of not just her family and friends, but countless others through her work at Share Michigan and the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Paula’s presence in this world will be dearly missed, but her spirit will continue to enrich all who knew her.
