Paula Lou Reinfeld, 76, Bismarck, ND, went to heaven to be with her Lord and Savior on November 28, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by loved ones.
A celebration of life will be held at Antioch Center in Mandan, 802 Boundary St NW, on December 7th at 10:30 am. Since cremation has taken place, there will be no viewing. Following a light lunch, the ashes will be interred at the Veteran's Cemetery at 1825 46th St, Mandan, ND at 2:00 pm.
She was born in Oildale, CA on September 8th, 1946 to Victor Roberts and Betty Cowan (div.). Paula attended Nettleton College in Yankton, SD where she met her husband, Frederick. Later in life she attended Rasmussen College where she obtained her degree in medical transcription.
She married Frederick in Laverne, MN on November 20th, 1965.
Paula worked at the Comfort Suites for over 20 years. Church was a constant in Paula's life. She made sure to go every Sunday and was a devout Christian. She loved Jesus, Elvis, Hallmark Christmas movies, Psych, but most importantly of all, her family, and spending time with the grandchildren. She loved them unconditionally and always made sure to be the bright spot in their day. Paula always loved to crack "dad" jokes. Even later in life she found ways to enjoy herself. She took mission trips to Nepal, went to many concerts with her daughter, went to buy livestock with her son and daughter-in-law across states, and even jumped off an airplane after she went into remission in 2018.
Paula was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2017. After many tough rounds of treatment, she made the decision to no longer go through chemotherapy, and live each day in the moment and leave things up to God.
She is survived by her sister, Linda (Gene) Kristensen; daughter, Tracy (Gary) Gronowski; sons, Jim (Monica) Reinfeld and Scott Reinfeld; grandsons, Zec, DJ, and Levi; granddaughters, BreeAnn (Ryan), Paige, Kassi and Mercedes; great-grandsons, Brantley and Casen; great-granddaughters, Addison and Jocelyn, and numerous nieces and nephews, and even more beloved friends.
Paula was preceded in death by her parents, Victor and Betty, her husband, Frederick, and her son, Anthony.
