Paula was born April 20, 1963 at Cottage Hospital in Galesburg, Illinois. She lived her younger years in Illinois, Iowa, Montana and Moses Lake, Wash., where she graduated from Moses Lake High School. After graduation, she went to work in health care services to include Samaritan Hospital ER for several years until her health required her to retire; about which she was not happy. Paula and Tom recently celebrated their 22nd anniversary on Aug. 10. Paula and Tom enjoyed the experience of traveling to visit and travel with family and friends. Most of the time the journey itself, with no particular designation (penny-hike), was the greatest experience. Paula’s loves were painting, many different crafts, reading and gardening. The one thing she loved the most was taking care of her fur babies (animals).
