We lost a special lady. I knew Paula through Newcomers; Bunco, Mexican Canasta,home and GardenClub. She hosted the Home and Garden club several times for us to see her pretty yard and flowers. She fixed wonderful desserts. She went in day trip , the month General Meeting. She told me when I visited her in OKC by Baptist she’d be back I said I know you will.
She joked and always had a smile. She loved to go and one of her best friends, Bea Moore travelled many places together. She stayed with Bea when her home was being fixed from the Moore tornado. They were special friends. Bea didn’t miss a week

Rest in piece PaukA you fought the good fight. Rejoice in heaven no pain and no more hospitals. It’s not goodbye it is I’ll see you later. Keep the faith! Your Newcomer friend. Love you sharon lewis. May your family rejoice that her suffering is over. Wrap your arms around them God and give them strength. visiting Paula and bringing other friends with her to encourage Paula and visit her.
