Paula was apart of the Sunshine Band and YPWW! She often attended Holy International Convocations and loved traveling all over the United States. Paula frequently visited New Jerusalem and Mission Temple, so much so that she eventually had her own chair.


Paula worked at Brownies BBQ for some time. She could fry chicken, make a good steak and enjoy it with a Pepsi! Paula loved to take pictures (and steal them too). She had thousands of photos with family and friends. Paula could sing! Paula sang in the choir, bedroom and in the shower. She played gospel music and knew how to play a tambourine with some rhythm. Paula hated snakes and bugs with a passion. Paula really loved spending time with family and going to Reed’s Ice Cream to savor something sweet. Paula enjoyed shopping and dressing well.


Paula passed away May 26, 2023. She was preceded in death by her parents, Royal Ernest Eugene and Ruth Ellen Robinson; and sisters, Cheryl, Rosalie and Lillie.
