Paula Gail Pashia
It is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to Paula Gail Pashia, loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, Social Worker and friend. Paula passed away on May 4th, 2023, leaving behind countless individuals whose lives she impacted in immeasurable ways.
Born on June 2nd, 1972 in Potosi, Paula spent her life making an indelible mark on her community. She was a devoted wife to Jason Pashia and a proud mother to three children, daughters, Brittany Huys, husband Nick, and Jessa Pashia, and son Jay Robert Pashia. She was also a beloved grandmother to Annabelle, Beau, and Charlie.
Paula's parents, Gail and Kenny Aubuchon preceded her in death. She is survived by several family members who will miss her dearly; brothers, Dr. Erik Aubuchon and wife Tausha, Kyle Aubuchon and wife Bekah, Ryan Aubuchon and wife Bethany, Richard Coleman and wife Jacy; mother and father in-law, Phyllis and Jeff Pashia; grandparents, Rita Kamper, Linda and Bernard Pashia.
Paula dedicated many years of her life to Trojan Intermediate School where she found joy and fulfillment as a Social Worker. Her passion for children was evident both inside and outside of the classroom through her continued efforts to support students beyond the school day. Her positive impact is something that will undoubtedly be remembered for years to come.
Friends describe Paula with words such as "helpful," "loving," and "kind." Whether through a simple smile or a thoughtful gesture, Paula had a way of making others feel valued. When not working at the school or spending time with loved ones, you could often find Paula enjoying one of her many hobbies. She loved camping under the stars with family around the bonfire while sharing stories and laughter. Paula especially enjoyed watching her son Jay Robert play baseball.
Paula will be missed terribly by many. Her memory will live on through the countless individuals she touched throughout her time with us. We take solace in knowing that she has found peace and comfort alongside those who have left this world before her. Her kind spirit will always be remembered with love and admiration.
