Paula was a member of First Baptist Church in Cave City.  She loved her grandbabies and making family and friends laugh with her and at her with a natural fun sense of humor.  She especially enjoyed "discussing" politics - a true political activist.  Her self-proclaimed best job was director of Main Street Batesville, Arkansas. She had also worked several years with White River Area Agency on Aging helping others, and she loved musical stage performances vocalizing with her husband.  Her favorite country music artists were Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.
