Mrs. Paula Soto Caudillo, 88, of Lebanon, Indiana, passed away Sunday, March 31, 2019. She was born on January 26, 1931, in San Marcos, Texas, a daughter of the late Pantaleon and Victoriana L. Soto.

On May 1, 1946, she was married to Antonio Gonzales Caudillo in Wilson County, Texas. He preceded her in death on July 22, 1995.

In 1956, she and Antonio left San Antonio, Texas to later settle in Indiana. Paula retired from Raymark Corporation of Crawfordsville in March 1993. She attended St. Joseph Catholic Church; however, was at home in any house of worship.

Not only did she enjoy working on the family farm and operating the equipment, she also enjoyed expressing herself artistically through sewing, crocheting, and embroidery. Paula was never intimidated by life’s challenges, as a result she either learned quickly or was self-taught. Her talents will be greatly missed.

Paula was a good wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Survivors include:
Four Children:
Antonieta (Larry) Richardson of Indianapolis
Alfredo S. Caudillo of Westfield, Indiana
Merce S. Hale of Lebanon
