  1. I am so sorry for your loss of Paula. You will be remembered in my prayers and at the masses I will celebrate. With faith and God’s love to all, Rob Bourcy

  2. I just wanted to say that I was very sorry to hear about Paula\’s passing. We were great friends way back in Grammar school (#39 school). I still have pictures of the two of us we took together at one of those picture booths. We would go downtown together and buy matching skirts to wear to school. We were in the same class in 6th and 7th grade, but I knew her before those grades. Anyway, I will always remember her and the fun we had together. Paula and her family are in my prayers. God Bless you all!

  3. I have know Paula since grammar school and she was a beautiful person with compassion heart for everyone. She will be missed, but in heavan with God. May you all be blessed in your grieving

  4. Her daughter Joy Ann is missed as well. I was wondering if anyone knows where Joy Ann was buried, because I was a close friend of hers and I would like to bring Joy some flowers in remembrance of her.
