Mrs. Alana Kay Paulsen,70, of Kissee Mills, went to be with her Lord on Aug. 12, 2023, in Kissee Mills, MO. Memorial services will be announced by the family at a later time. Cremation was entrusted under the direction of Snapp-Bearden Forsyth Chapel, Forsyth, MO.
Alana was born Dec. 23, 1952, in Mason City, Iowa. She was the daughter of Deloy and Gloria (Riems) Carroll. She married Mark Paulsen on Sept. 18, 1998, in Dallas, TX. They have celebrated twenty-four years being together. Alana worked various vocations and occupations during her lifetime. Alana was very proud of the work she did at their ranch alongside Mark in Texas helping people with special social needs. Teaching their guest about the Lord and giving them direction in their lives, how to free themselves from the dependency on drugs and alcohol and how to come to know Christ and become a more whole person with the Lord. Alana had attended the Cross Timber Community Church in Argyle, Tx.
Alana and Mark moved to the Kissee Mills community to enjoy their retirement years. She was a person that loved to be doing something all the time, so she filled some free time by working at Country Mart in Forsyth, where she was able to meet and befriend many people. Alana enjoyed her talents as a cook, sewing, making colorful baby blankets, and helping others.
She is preceded in her passing by her parents Deloy and Gloria, a husband John Axelson, son Jared Axelson, and a daughter Chasidy Wood.
Alana will be remembered by her loving husband Mark “Cowboy” Paulsen, and granddaughter Alana “Faith” Wood, along with the extended family and the many friends she met along the way.
