Paula Lynn Shufeldt
Paula Lynn (Lafler) Shufeldt was born on January 7, 1952 in Lincoln, Nebraska to Willie G. “Bill” and Darlene J. (Thompson) Lafler, who preceded her in death. She passed away on September 14, 2020 at her home in Ashland, Nebraska with her daughter by her side. Paula was a twin to Paul Lyle Lafler, who passed away on May 23, 1953. Her most beloved older brother, Darrell G. Lafler and wife, Sharon preceded her in death, as did her most loved brother-in-law, Robert G. “Bob” Bethel.
Paula was the kind of person who would help anyone out in any circumstance. She had a huge, soft heart, especially for the underdog. She loved bingo and all her many friends there; it was the highlight of her week. She had a great sense of humor. She loved the ocean and took many cruises, which she dearly loved to do. She retired from the League of Human Dignity in Lincoln, where she had worked for many years.
Paula is survived by her son, Steven C. Bade, daughter, Jacqueline J. (Barber) Lydiatt (Steve R.) and her dearly beloved granddaughter, Shelby F. Lydiatt, the sunshine and absolute heart of her life. She is also survived by her older sister, Norma J. “Jeanne” Bethel of Tucson, AZ, and younger brothers, William B. “Bill” Lafler, Colorado and Glenn D. Lafler, Lincoln, honorary childhood friend, Ella M. Carson, Lincoln and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Paula was cremated and her wish was to have a Celebration of Life in the Spring of 2021; details of Celebration will be posted on Paula’s Facebook page.
