Paula’s passion and compassion was for the care and

                treatment of animals.

                She fostered, adopted, and rescued dogs and cats for her lifetime.

                She leaves this world with Belle, Maggie, Carver, Piggy, Sophie,

                Trixie, and BC wondering when she will come home… grieving.

A life-long reader, music lover (rock to classic), accomplished cook,

                an independent thinker, student of politics and history

                (WW II especially), news “junkie”

“Paula’s wit, spunk, individuality, and sense of adventure” succinctly put is

what drew family and a legion of long-time, loyal friends to her.

She is loved… and missed.
