    Paula was a larger then life personality. I've know her all my life and grew up with her children in Green Valley. Paula and Chick were one of my parents best friends. Driving by her house everyday knowing she was still there made things alright because everything was statuesque. Now we've lost a valley icon. She'll be missed but she will remain in my heart as one of my favorite people. I'm sure she's up in heaven teaching everyone how to dance and do the splits. You go girl! Your long time friend.

    I met Miss Paula while doing a remodel project. Somehow I gained her trust and was out fixing things at all hours of the day & night. Paula was never afraid of anything. In her 70's she would sweep the leaves out of her gutters and was always dressed like the queen she truly was. Her home was always decorated to the season and Christmas seemed to be her favorite. She can now dance forever in heaven. God Bless you all.
