Paula was one of the nicest, sweetest, honest to a fault kind of person you could ever meet. We met when I adopted Paula and Joan's dogs, Laurel and Hardy. We communicated about the dogs and had the same sense of humor and love for the dogs that they unfortunately had to give up. I live in NJ, but would visit with them often, bringing Laurel and Hardy with me and they would visit us and loved how happy Laurel and Hardy were. Over the years, we just became good friends, I love how she took care of Joan when she got sick, how much she loved her Orioles even though our home was a Yankee home. We would also poke fun at each other. She had a wonderful, snarky sense of humor and I just loved it and I loved her. My heart is broken now. I won't have that wonderful friend to visit, do the Spring Well dinners with Joan, play with Quita. I'm so happy Quita will be well taken care of and I know Paula is in a much more wonderful place, but for the rest of us here, we will all miss her terribly. I hope you are playing golf dear Paula.

Paula was my neighbor in the condominium at 12011 Tralee Road. She lived directly below me. When Paula had her knee surgery and needed a ride to the doctor's office , I was pleased when she called me, and I was available to drive her there. Likewise, one time when I needed a ride to physical therapy, Paula was nearby and offered to take me, as I could not drive at that time. Paula was a quiet, reserved person, so we were especially happy to see her at the Holiday Party in December in the lobby of the condo. Paula delivered mail and newspapers to folks in the building when she saw the need to do so. It is a blessing that her dog Quita, will live with Wally Ford and Paul Binko, who kept in constant touch with Paula and walked her dog when she was unable to do so. Quita will be a reminder of our good friend, Paula, whenever we see Paul and Wally taking her out for a walk. My deepest sympathy to all of the Murphy family. Paula will be missed by her condo family more than words can say. Blessings and prayers to all.

Paula was a great mentor early in my career. She was fun, practical and real. I remember her telling me how I needed to learn to be able to laugh at myself from time to time. Her devotion to Joan and their loving relationship was something I always admired. I am very sorry to hear of her passing. May she rest in peace.

Sincere condolences to Paula’s family. Paula and Joan were our wonderful neighbors for many years. She would always come over on Halloween all dressed up in costumes! She loved to watch the “Norwick Circle kids” grow up! Our hearts are heavy. May she Rest In Peace.
