She is survived by two children, Sarah (Charles Crockett) Vatcher and Jacob Vatcher both of Los Angeles, CA. In her youth, Paula loved to sing in both her school and church choirs. Later in life, she started fostering puppies from local shelters to help ensure they were ready for their forever homes. Paula was creative and had been fixing up a home she had just bought. She was a loving mother and friend, always willing to offer a helping hand and an ear to listen. Paula's wish was to be cremated with no services at this time.
