Paula June Greene, age 66 of South Bend, passed away on Thursday, June 17, 2021, at Brookdale Assisted Living Center in South Bend.   Paula was born September 8, 1954, in Washington County, Indiana to the late Dennis and Maxine (Horn) Perry. On December 18, 1971, she married Albert DeCook in South Bend.  Albert preceded her in death in March of 1992. Later, Paula met Bill Greene and they were married in July of 1993.  They were looking forward to celebrating their 28th anniversary in a few weeks.  

Bill survives, along with their children Erika Lymburner and Daniel (Alicia Smith) DeCook, both of South Bend.  Paula is also survived by her grandchildren Alex and Tyler Lymburner, Destiny, Daniel, and Courtney DeCook as well as her great-grandson Marcellus Harris. Surviving as well are her siblings Cheryl (Michael) Scott of Osceola, Debbie (Randy) Heeter of Mishawaka, Pamela (Mike) Cabanaw of South Bend, and Rodney (Lesley) Perry of Osceola, and her sister-in-law Mary Perry of Osceola.  She was preceded in death by her brothers Denny and Roy Perry.

Paula was employed for many years with Creation Windows in Elkhart.  She was a member of the Mishawaka Moose Lodge and loved to travel, especially to Mexico.  Paula also enjoyed going to garage sales and camping at the Yogi Bear Campgrounds in Pierceton, Indiana where she and Bill made many friends and lifelong connections to those they met at the park. Most of all, Paula loved being a grandmother to her grandchildren.  She will be dearly missed.
