"She was one of the rare ones, so effortlessly herself and the world loved her for it." - Atticus
Our mother left us with a trail of loving memories and tears shared by too many to count. Paula Loraine Maas (Chamberlin) was born to Paul and Mable Chamberlin on March 13, 1929, in Auburn, Wash. She was the oldest of nine children, who all graduated from Renton High School. Paula lived an adventurous life including moving to Sitka, Alaska, in the late '50s, and working in restaurants from Fairbanks, Alaska, to Death Valley, Calif. Her reputation still stands as the oldest person to do the zipline in Puerto Vallarta on her 80th birthday, followed by parasailing and swimming with dolphins.
She loved and adored her 10 grandchildren and her 10 great-grandchildren, and always had room in her heart for her family and endless list of friends. She leaves one-of-a-kind memories for each of us to always hold in our hearts.
Paula was preceded in death by her son, Michael Richardson; and husband, Raymond Maas; brothers, Curly and Ernie; and sister, Maybelle. She is survived by her children, Vickie Dodge-Pamplin (Geofrey), Henry Schupp (Rosamond), and Roxane Stinsky; grandchildren, Michele (David), Michael (Melanie), Rachel (Ben), Stacey (Zeek), Amber, Erica, Clayton, Garrett, Talen and Coryl; brother, Bob; sisters, Donna, Clarice (Chris), Carol, Patricia (Peter) and Joan (Jim); her 10 great-grandchildren, Haley, Noah, Harper, Maizy, Langston, Alex, Gwenn, Maxym, Aida and Marshall; and over 75 nieces and nephews.
Our family remains eternally grateful for all the love and support from family and friends, especially Susan Holland, Sherrie and Robin Siverson, Meghann McEvoy and the staff at Marlow Manor.
We invite you to share in her memory on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, from 1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m., at Romano's Restaurant, 2415 C Street in Anchorage, Alaska.
We will have another celebration of her amazing life with family in Renton, Wash., in the next month.
Donations may be made in her honor to: Hope Community Resources, Family and Children's Program.
