Paula Mae (Stiffler) Merrill was born on June 27, 1943 to Dale and Helen Stiffler in Toledo, Ohio. She later married and moved her family to Indianapolis in 1968. Paula worked as a driver for UPS and retired in 2009. In her retirement years, Paula moved to Clearwater Beach, Florida and enjoyed working in the office of her condo building, visiting with her friends over breakfast or coffee, and hosting the many family and friends that came down to visit her in Florida. She was fondly known as “G Paula”, which stood for Grandma Paula. She was a strong, independent woman that loved her 13 grandchildren more than anything. They brought her the greatest joy. Paula is survived by her sisters, Karen (Stiffler) Nicholas and Lilla Stiffler, and also by her children, Shawn Merrill, Dawn Merrill, Dale Merrill, Anna (Merrill) Pennycuff, Eric Merrill and Kent Merrill. Paula had 13 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. A celebration of Paula’s life will take place on Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 1:00 – 5:00 pm at 1911 Grill, 1067 N. Main St. Speedway, In. 46224. Arrangements have been made through Cremation Society of Indiana.
