No words can adequately describe how wonderful of a person Paula was. Her infectious energy was always accompanied by her beaming smile that could lift the heaviest of hearts.

Working with Paula at Thomson Reuters was (almost) like stealing from the company - no one should have so much fun at work! Paula had such a talent for making work enjoyable all while getting the most out of everyone on the team...she was a truly inspiring leader and friend whom I’ll miss dearly, both professionally and personally.

Words can't express what you meant for me Paula, and how saddened I am to hear this.
You had a big smile and a terrific sense of humor even at difficult times which inspired me more than you knew.
Love you more now and will miss you every day of my life. I am richly blessed by knowing and working with you.

I am going to keep the gifts and books you send me forever in my life as a treasure!!

I had the privilege of working with Paula before she left Refinitiv and was nothing but amazed at her strength and her passion to do right by all. She was so supportive and such a beautiful person and I am truly heartbroken to hear this sad news of her passing.
I take comfort by her former words that she would one day be reunited with her Mom and Dad and would be with God.
Sending my love and sincere condolences to her friends and family at this difficult time.
Fly high Paula and be at peace xx

With your kindness, love, friendship and amazing sense of humour you touched our lives. Thank you for being my inspiration.
My thoughts are with your family!
We will miss you more than words can say. I don’t even know what to say!

If roses grow in heaven,
God, please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in our dearest Paula’s arms
And tell her there’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her.

Being a colleague with Paula over a number of years working in ITS was an absolute gift. Seeing the care and dedication she put in to her work, alongside coping with what must have been tough personal times for her made you realise what a really special and strong person she was. She never complained, always cared about others and was always a joy to spend time with, even though we were based in separate countries and only managed the precious face to face moments on a few occasions. Paula will be missed by many and remembered often.

I was with Paula at Reuters but didn't actually work with her. I knew her because we played together at the Cafe 88 Jam. Paula was generous, fun, kind, and sang beautifully.
My condolences to friends and family....

To Paula’s family and friends;

I am saddened to learn that we have lost our dear friend Paula.
She brought great joy to work each day at Reuters. Always smiling and pleasant. Always kind words for everyone.

How I miss her over the years since we left Reuters. How I wish I could bring us all back together.

Sincerely;
Dom Terrasi
