Dear Josh & Bruce: Paula will always hold a special place in my heart. She loved her family so much. I never knew anyone who loved their cousins as much as she did! There were so many cousins, & she loved them all. It didn't matter if you were blood or related by marriage. I will truly miss her. My heart and thoughts are with you. Love Rita

My sincere condolences go out to Josh, Bruce and all of Paul's family and extended family. She was a dear and cherished friend to me for many decades. I will miss our regular phone calls and our visits. She had a spunky personality that was one of a kind. Her love of her parents, children, grandchildren, sibling, aunts, uncles and cousins, extended family as well as her husbands ran deep and to her core. She was a strong woman that endured so much in her life both good and bad, yet she faced each challenge like a warrior. I will miss my friend and all of her stories and lessons of her family history. I know that she loved all and she loved life. I just wish I had known that my visit with Paula just five days before she passed would be my last. I would have hugged her harder and kissed her longer. Rest in peace my friend!

We will never see another Paula Iris Ronis Scherr in our lifetimes. Paula was way beyond any unique we are able to comprehend. She was a comedian on the run. She was a friend whenever you needed one. She was a shoulder to cry on, an ear ready to listen to your problems. In spite of her own sorted problems, she always had time for you. She was the best good girl I ever knew. I talked to Paula 2 days before she passed on the internet. I would often call and talk to her. It was like therapy for me and she always made me laugh. I knew Paula though mostly distantly for over 1/2 century. Now I'm sitting here saddened and sobbing, realizing my friend I loved is gone. In this situation, I wasn't too late, because I told her I loved her and always would. Well my dear friend wherever your spirit and soul landed, and I know it's a good place, may mine land next to yours. Often I will think of you, until we meet again! ❤️
