As a mother, she taught her family how to love unconditionally and when things got rough, she would always remind them of her favorite saying, “THIS TOO SHALL PASS.” She is loved so much by many and will be missed by all who knew her.

We're sorry to hear of your loss. Paula was so kind and gentle. She had the Midas touch when it came to drawing lab work. Paula's smile and sense of humor made the many visits in Oxford enjoyable. She will definitely be missed.

I worked with Paula for many years at the Anniston Medical Clinic. She was a wonderful caring nurse. I didn’t know she had been ill. We shared many fun times together!! I’ll miss her great sense of humor and her friendship!! I know she is watching over us from Heaven. Prayers for her family I know they will miss her. May the Lord comfort them at this difficult time!! My husband Norman saw her at the VA. He said she drew blood better that anyone he has ever known!! And her humor was such a blessing!! We will miss her. Much love to her family!!

Paula and I were Wellborn classmates and graduated together in 1963. I saw her at Mr. Waldrop's memorial service and thought she looked wonderful. I was unaware she has been ill. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on your loss. To have a parent or grandparent leave an earthly life is heartbreaking and difficult to understand. May God wrap his arms around you and give you peace.

I worked at Anniston Medical Clinic with Paula for 11 yrs. I was a medical Transcriptionist there. She and I would have some great conversations and were good friends. I am heart broken about her loss,but God had other plans Now she is ultimately healed. Praying for Britt and Ashley and the families that loved her so. God will comfort and sustain you until we meet her again.
