She is also survived by four sisters-inlaw and three brothers-in-law.
The family would especially like to acknowledge the kindness of the Madison Valley Library for picking out the books Paula liked to read; the pharmacy with all her meds; the medical center for the lab work and C.T tests, and the E.M.T.s that came over to the house and gave her the Covid booster when she was no longer able to leave the house. Our very kind neighbors: Scott and Sheryl Knepper, Charley and Janet Ducsay, Gary and Diana Laqua, and Bob and Sue Welna. Sue came over to the house several times and gave Paula communion. The cookies she brought seemed to disappear. Father John Crutchfield of Saint Patrick's Catholic church; he was so kind and supportive as Paula looked forward to his visits to the house. A private mass was conducted at St. Patrick's Catholic church.
