To view a video tribute for May Falkner Paul, please click here.\nMay Falkner Paul, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister, left this world for a better place August 24, 2006. During her 89 years she touched many lives and left lasting, fond memories. \nMom was born May 18, 1917, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Peter John and Emma Carlson Falkner. The oldest of six children, she set the example and assumed responsibility for the younger ones. May maintained a fond relationship with her brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews as long as she was physically able.\nAfter graduating from South High School, Mom met her life-long companion, Harold E. Paul. They married and raised four children: Stephen, Barbara (Brent) North, Richard (Kay) and Stan (Donna). Life was not easy for May, but she managed to provide for the needs of her family. She loved to cook and would bake four pies and four loaves of bread at a time. The grandchildren loved her Christmas cookie parties, and the backyard holiday parties were a blast. May was a talented and creative woman who made quilts for every member of the family, and those quilts are still on our beds. She never forgot a birthday, and she loved parties. May had a laugh that warmed everyone around her.\nMay was extremely well-read, and she retained everything she read. We all knew that if we were ever on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, she would be our “one call” for information.\nMom was forever thinking of those less fortunate than she. When picking peaches or apples, she picked one bushel for her own family and another bushel for a neighbor in need. She never threw anything away, but donated it to those in need.\nMay will be greeted on the other side by her son, Steve, who passed away in 1959, her husband, who passed in 1998, her mother and father, brothers Jack and Paul, sister Delle Tilley, and numerous friends and loved ones.\nThe family wishes to thank Nurse John of Odyssey Hospice, Margo Polo, Tracie, Dan Barney, Wendy, and the many tireless caregivers who made May’s last years tolerable.\nShe is survived by eleven grandchildren and twenty-four great grandchildren, brother Richard Falkner, sister Marie Bickley.\nFuneral services will be held Tuesday, August 29, 2006 t 11:00 a.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 So. State Street, where friends and family may call Monday, August 28th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and Tuesday from 10:00-10:45 a.m. prior to services. Interment will be at Elysian Burial Gardens.
