Paula Rose Mahaney

September 15, 1949 — January 10, 2023

Paula Rose Mahaney, 73 of Tipton passed away on Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at Ascension – St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. She was born on September 15, 1949 in Bedford to Leo & Lillian “Tweed” McCann. Paula married Dennis Wayne Mahaney on July 15, 1972; he preceded her in death on January 16, 2008.

Paula retired from her production job at Delco Electronics in Kokomo in 2000. She was a devoted family mother. She looked forward to “Tuesday night dinners” with her grandchildren and spending time with them as she followed their activities and interests. Many special memories were made each week. She was an avid fan of the Hallmark Lifetime television channel. She was a former member of Heartland Church.

Paula loved everyone!!! But most importantly, Paula was a loving and selfless wife and mother to her family. Her positive, generous and affectionate presence was a constant confirmation of her kindness, love and true faith. She was the sweetest person-always and was one of the most kind and thoughtful people the world has ever known. Paula was loved by all who knew her, and she will be greatly missed… especially her lovable sense of humor.

Survivors include her children, Joseph Patrick Mahaney and wife Robin (Smith) Mahaney, Tipton, Sam Clabough and wife Lora (Rinker) Clabough, Columbus, Indiana, and Amy Jo (Mahaney) Meyer and husband Richard N. Meyer, Tipton. Siblings are Megan, Frank, and John McCann. Paula is also survived by 16 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, Dennis, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Andrea Rose Mahaney, three sisters, and a brother.
