PAULA ANN (CLAY) DOSEN, 60, of Fort Wayne, gained her angel wings on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Born July 22, 1953, in Columbia City, Ind., she was a daughter of Robert and Virginia Clay. She grew up in Fort Wayne and graduated from North Side High School. She found great pride and joy in raising her two children, Andrea and Jacob. Paula possessed an amazing love for her family and friends. Paula's greatest life roles were being a daughter, sister, mom, aunt, and grandmother. Paula dedicated over 25 years to Fort Financial Credit Union. She enjoyed traveling, especially to warm places, painting and crafting, was an avid reader, and loved being outside. Paula was able to see the world on her doorstep through her Russian daughter, Oksana and her beloved exchange students.

She is survived by her two children and their spouses, Andrea and Doug Preston and Jake and Molly Dosen: sister and brother-in-law, Jody and Tom Hyder; nieces and their spouses, Jennifer and Dave Volkman and Julie and Bryan Critser; granddaughters, Kiya and Kelaney; and great nieces and great nephews, Clay, Grant, Natalie, and Gracelynn.
