She was born March 17, 1921 in the Town of St Lawrence, Waupaca Co., the daughter of Otto and Pauline (Hass) Steinbach. She attended Maple Ridge School, St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran School, and Little Wolf HS in Manawa, graduating in 1939. Eilene began her life-long tradition of stewardship at the age of 12 years, with a savings deposit of $1.68, in the Farmer’s State Bank of Manawa. She married Leonard E. Paulson on November 3, 1940 and moved to the Paulson family farm where she worked and resided until her admission to Bethany at the age of 98. In addition to farming, she and Leonard developed Casey Lake Campground and managed it for 30 years. Eilene was a 4-H leader for 15 years and a member of her Extension Homemaker’s club for 54 years, both of which afforded her lifelong friendships. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Waupaca from April 1950 until the time of her death, and a devoted participant in the Esther Group. She taught Sunday School for 35 years and retained many precious memories of the children in her classes.
