Paula Owens

ON SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 2023, PAULA OWENS, WIFE, MOTHER, NANA, SISTER, AUNT, AND FRIEND, PASSED AWAY SUDDENLY AT THE AGE OF 59 YEARS OLD IN HER APARTMENT IN JASPER, TX.

PAULA WAS BORN ON AUGUST 23, 1963 IN HOUSTON, TEXAS BEING THE YOUNGEST DAUGHTER OF WILMA AND TROY VAUGHN AS NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE AFTER HER SISTER BRENDA PASSED AWAY AT BIRTH AND WILMA WAS TOLD SHE WOULD BE UNABLE TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY. A RAINBOW IS OFTEN A SIGN OF HOPE, THE BEAUTY AFTER THE STORM, A POT OF GOLD AND GOOD FORTUNE AT THE RAINBOW’S END. FOR MANY, A RAINBOW CARRIES A PERSONAL SYMBOLIC MEANING-REPRESENTING INCLUSIVITY, AN ALL-EMBRACING IMAGE OF LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP. PAULA WAS A TRUE RAINBOW BABY, SHE WAS THE SAVING GRACE FOR THE PEOPLE SHE WAS CLOSEST TO IN THIS LIFE, ALWAYS THERE TO PROVIDE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND SUPPORT NO MATTER IF YOU WERE RIGHT OR WRONG. SHE LIVED HER LIFE EXTREMELY FORGIVING AND ALWAYS WELCOMING ANYONE BACK WITH AN OPEN HEART. AND SHE PROVED TO BE ONE OF THIS WORLD’S SWEETEST SOULS TO BE LOVED BY. SHE WAS LOYAL TO THE PEOPLE SHE LOVED TO A FAULT BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT SHE WAS THE PERSON WHO WOULD PICK UP THE PHONE AND BE THERE FOR YOU THROUGH IT ALL. PAULA GREW UP IN CHURCH AND CAN BE REMEMBERED PLAYING PIANO AND SINGING HYMNS AT CHURCH AND IN HER HOME. HER PERSONALITY VARIED ACROSS MANY PATHS THROUGH HER LIFETIME AND THERE ISN’T A SINGLE PERSON WHO DOESN’T A MEMORY WHERE THEY WILL SMILE THE MOMENT, THEY THINK OF HER.

PAULA WAS PROCEEDED IN DEATH BY HER MOTHER, WILMA VAUGHN, FATHER, TROY VAUGHN, SISTERS, BRENDA VAUGHN, TINA RAWLS, CHARLENE MCGRAW, AND CARRIE RILEY, AND GRANDSON JUSTIN OWENS JR.
