She would put up a fight to go watch her granddaughter and the Baylor Lady Bears play a volleyball game. Paula cherished every moment she spent at soccer, basketball and softball games. She never missed band concerts or marching contest if she could help it. Paula and Larry volunteered at the Coryell County Youth Fair for over 25 years, from home economics to showing goats, and rabbits. Paula was a member of Mountain Baptist Church.
