G. Lorraine Paulus, a retired bookkeeper and World War II volunteer, died in her sleep Dec. 7 at Brightview of Catonsville, an assisted-living facility. She was 84.

Miss Paulus was born in Baltimore and raised on East Hoffman Street. She was a 1934 graduate of the commercial course at the now-closed St. Katharine of Sienna Roman Catholic Church.

She worked for 35 years as a bookkeeper for the Baltimore Towel Supply Co. After the business closed in 1969, she went to work as a bookkeeper at Archbishop Keough High School, now Seton-Keough High School. She retired in 1977.

During World War II, she volunteered with the Army Air Forces Auxiliary Women's Corps and worked at the Baltimore Filter Center, where she monitored the progress of flights relayed to the center by Army spotters.

Miss Paulus was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching football, especially University of Notre Dame, basketball and boxing. She was an accomplished seamstress and made clothes for family members.

Miss Paulus, who was a Catonsville resident since 1958, was a communicant of St. Mark Roman Catholic Church in Catonsville, where a Mass of Christian burial was offered Friday.

She is survived by many nieces and nephews.
