Paula devoted her life to selfless caring of her family. As a loving wife and mother, she enjoyed gardening, cooking and baking. She filled everything with the most important ingredient – her love. She had an amazing sense of humour and an infectious smile. Paula had a generous spirit and, she radiated fairness and compassion. Both her inner and outer beauty will continue to bring us warm and vivid memories. She was a sweet, kind and friendly person, who will be a perfect angel. May she rest in peace.
