Gentry & I were so sorry to hear of Paula’s passing.
We had so much fun with them on our fishing trips in Rehoboth. Not everyone can end up in CapeMay instead of Rehoboth on a fishing trip!
Paula was so much fun & will be truly missed.

Paula was such a fun-loving and outgoing woman. With a smile on her face, she would tell stories and anecdotes that humorously reflected her family life. Our trip to Florida will be a cherished memory.
Phil and I will miss her.

Condolence from Joan B. Mirarchi on December 1st, 2021 4:37 pm

I was so sorry to learn of Paula’s passing. I knew of her through my sister, Ave Schreder, but got to know Paula better about 15 or 20 years ago when she, Sissy, Ave, and a few other ladies formed a “Red Hat Lady” group. We had so many laughs at these get-togethers. Paula was so bubbly and happy all the time.
I extend to all the family my deepest sympathy. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all today, Paula was a special lady. When I worked at Lancaster newspapers, I saw her numerous times over my lunch hour outside in the square, she always had a hello and that award winning smile of hers for me, imagine the thrill she is enjoying now in Heaven. God bless you all.
