Dear Melanie, Paul, grandkids and family, we want to extend our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom/Nana Paula. I had only met Paula a few times but felt her kindness and gentleness. What a great smile too! We’re keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers in these difficult sad times. May She Rest In Peace 🙏🏻 .
Hugs, Georgia & Basile Papaevangelou

How do you say goodbye to a dear friend of over 40 years? With great sadness, but also with certainty that Paula will live on through the lives of not just her children and grandchildren but all those whose lives she has touched over the years, including mine. Our children grew up together in their early years as we were next door neighbours on Rainbow Cres. I won't embarrass the girls by telling the "haircut" story here, but Paula and I really did share many "up and down", mainly fun memories over the years...especially on New Years Eve with her and Mike and friends. She was always ready to help out, to share a cup of tea or even occasionally a glass of white wine! Her great joy since retirement has been spending time with her four grandchildren . How they loved their Nana! She was a great cook and loved sharing meals with friends. My heart goes out to Mike, Samantha and Melanie, who I will continue to hold close. Sweet dreams dear Paula.

Besides being Samantha and Melanie’s mom, Paul’s mother-in-law and the childrens Nana, she was a dear friend and family to me as well. We had some memorable trips together with lots of laughter, good food and wine. Our shared grandchildren were always part of our talks over the years.
There was always an open invitation, with bring your PJ’s and your tooth brush just in case!
Her green thumb was apparent with all her beautiful flowers and plants around their home. The botanical gardens had a rival by the name of Paula !
I wish i could roll back the clock to before you left us but since i can’t i promise to remind our grandchildren of how much their Nana loved them and how proud she was of them. When they are on stage giving us their beautiful dance routines i know you will be in the audience right beside us as proud as ever.
Safe journeys Paula 🙏🏼

Love Linda

My heartfelt thoughts and sincerest condolences are with all of the family during this very difficult time. Paula’s greatest pleasure was being with family and friends, and she will be missed by everyone that was fortunate enough to have the pleasure of knowing her. I will always have such wonderful memories of the time spent with her and Mike.
