Paula Fehring Jared, 68 went home to be with the Lord on Friday, November 1st surrounded by her loving husband, devoted family and friends.

Born September 8, 1951 in Sterling, Oklahoma to John T. and Pauline Jung Fehring, Paula loved helping people from the beginning to the end. Her career in Social Work continued into retirement as she shared knowledge and passion for serving her community with many local agencies. Paula volunteered for Love Network, San Jacinto Methodist Hospital, worked closely with Hearts and Hands of Baytown concentrating on the homeless population and served on various committees at the UWGBACC. She received the first ever Live United Award in 2018 for all her many contributions to the community.

Her memory will be cherished and kept alive by her loving spouse of 20 years, Nick Jared, her son Josh Elizondo, daughters Teri Conklin, Nikki Rincon and Angie Reinecke, eight beloved grandsons, brother Ronald Fehring, sisters Linda Bennett and Connie Presley, best friends Dyann Hyland and Jeannie Herrington, nieces Andrea Caswell, Becky Swope, Brenda Hutchinson, Meredith Smith, Michelle Neal, her special great nieces Abby and Sophie Hutchinson, along with countless friends. Paula was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers Chris and Terry.

Paula was happiest when spoiling her grandsons with gifts and fun getaways to Disney, Universal, Great Wolf Lodge and trips to the beach. She needed a shirt that said, “Gigi is my name, spoiling is my game!” Jared, Jacob, Dylan, Parker, Zachary, Logan, Colton and Mason truly were her greatest treasures. Travel was another passion, she along with her husband and friends got to venture off to England, Italy, Germany, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Caribbean and Alaska; of course, extra luggage was needed to bring gifts home to everyone!

Paula loved the finer things in life, hosting beautiful parties where the crystal, silver and fine china would delight as much as her delicious cuisine truly brought her great joy.

An avid Astros fan she attended spring training twelve times and enjoyed rooting for her team! The family is requesting you wear your favorite Astros gear to the memorial.

Donations in lieu of flowers and usual remembrances is requested.

have a memory or condolence to add?

I cannot finish my memories of Paula without writing about
Daniel. He was a homeless man who Paula helped with housing, food, and medical care. His last years were blessed by all she did for him. He called her his angel.
Paula helped many people in her life but did not seek recognition.
She loved her family so very much and would do anything for them.
I will never find another friend like her.
We had so much fun.

I met Paula on January 3, 1980. This was the beginning of such a fun ride friendship.!! We had escapades too numerous to list and probably should not. Most of all she was the most fun friend in the world. She could always talk me down off the ceiling and offered a new perspective on a problem. We worked together for years and she made it seem more like pleasure than work.
Paula helped me through the difficult time when we lost our daughter and after hurricane Harvey. I still want to pick up the phone to discuss some silly TLC show we barely admitted to watching

I knew Paula for 39 years. We shared good times and bad times and often spent time talking on the phone. She knew how to make me laugh, and she helped me deal with grief after my husband passed in 2009. We had another close friend named Jeanie, and I sometimes called us The Three Musketeers. Some of my memories include starting out as neighbors when our daughters were 5 years old. Ours sons were a few years apart in age. We became Girl Scout co-leaders. We later volunteered at Houston Methodist Hospital Baytown, also for United Way, and at Love Network. Our adventures often included shopping, estate sales, garage sales, cooking classes, going to lunch, or the movies, Astros Spring Training, traveling, and playing cards and dominoes with our husbands and friends. Our friendship meant so much to me through the years. I loved her like a sister and will miss her dearly. I am blessed to have known her and have many memories to cherish, Dyann Hyland

I met Paula 1980 when we both worked for the State of Texas. She was pregnant with Joshua when we met. In 1983, I was in the hospital for an extended length of time. Paula came to visit me in hospital and brought me balloons. I really appreciated it. When she worked for my husband doing taxes she always brought me snacks. During slow times, we would watch Who wants to be a Millionaire. Those were the good times. Sorry she is gone.
