Paula was born on March 15, 1961 in St. Cloud to Delbert and Clara (Sauer) Henning.  She graduated from Tech High School in 1979 and from the St. Cloud School of Nursing in 1982. Paula married David Tholl on July 23, 1982 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in St. Cloud.  She lived all of her married life in St. Cloud and was employed as a registered nurse with the St. Cloud Hospital, the St. Cloud Surgical Center, and the St. Cloud Center for Ophthalmic Surgery until she was unable to work due to a medical disability in 2013. Paula was active with St. Peter’s Parish where she facilitated bible study, proclaimed the Word, and served on the Pastoral Council. 

Paula loved her family and treasured spending time with her grandchildren.  She enjoyed sewing (making pajamas for the grandchildren she adored), camping, swimming, and being outdoors. She treasured vacations at Boy Lake with her family.  She will be remembered for her deep faith and devotion to the church, her love of family, and deep commitment to her husband.   Paula will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered as a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt.                    

She is survived by her beloved husband of 37 years, David; sons, Justin (Joanna) of Eden Prairie, Tyler (Nora) of St. Anthony, Collin (Jaclyn) of Minneapolis; six grandchildren, Jett, Joss, Jorah and Jericho, Corene and Ada; siblings, Daniel (Pat) of St. Cloud, David (Cathy) of Mundelein, IL, Mary (Patrick) McKenzie of St. Cloud, Susan (Roger) Knauss of Rockville, Judy (Allen) Zetterlund of St. Cloud, Christine (Chas) Bettendorf of North Branch; mother-in-law, Carol Tholl of St. Cloud; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandchildren, Jadyn and Joryn.

I am so sorry to see this. Paula was a childhood friend of my younger sister Darlene, in the Holy Spirit days. I am sure that Paula and Darlene are now sharing in the glory of heaven. My condolences to the entire family. May Gods peace and comfort be with you. Carol Guck Kenning

Dave and family of Paula; Paula was a beautiful, godly woman. Most of all, I will miss the way her eyes lit up, with her smile, whenever we had contact. My heart and prayers are with you. Much love, Arlys

Our deepest sympathies to the Tholl family. Paula and David were our next door neighbors for almost 30 years and we had the pleasure of each raising 3 boys on Park Drive.
