Paula graduated from Columbia High School in June 1978. She has always had a love for arts and crafts. She enjoyed making new clothes for her grandkids, and spent a lot of time making her home her dream. She enjoyed working in the yard, and always made sure that she had pretty flowers for all to see, and for 4-year-old Madison to keep watered for her. She also loved camping with her family near Chinook Pass.

Paula worked many years at Battelle and immensely enjoyed the time and friendships with her groundwater monitoring team.

Paula always had a great sense of humor. Anytime anyone would be down, she was always there to cheer them up. She could make a joke out of anything!
