I worked with Paula at Maimonides and remember her fondly. She used to stop at Reception on her way out every evening and we would enjoy our little chats. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Carrie Bogante - 21 days ago

I remember Paula well from my earlier days at Maimonides. What I remember the most was that she always had a kind word to say to you. She was extremely devoted to the Auxiliary. My condolences to the family.

Cousin Paula was always an important presence in my life. Though our in-person visits were few and far between, I learned through experience that her definition of love was consistency, support, curiosity, and endless optimism. Paula was exuberant in her joy for my son, Bobby, and spoke often about how special it was to watch him grow; to share in his incremental changes and the intimacies of his life, through so many pictures, videos, and phone calls. I will honor Paula’s life by passing on her persistence, her hope, and her love. She will be missed, and her memory will be a blessing. -Georgia, Sarah, and Bobby

Stewart, Rhona and family. With great sadness I am sending you my deepest condolences. She felt blessed to be a part of your lives. Jastine was sent by G-d and made her last few months very special. I am sorry I didn't hear about her passing in time. I was lucky to have her in my life and she will be missed. She was a very special person. Celna

Paula, we’ve been friends since I first started working at Maimonides in the seventies and it was a friendship remained strong to this day. We have laughed together and we shared our sad times, too. Paula and I have spent hours on the phone together and as everyone knows, she was a great talker. Why say it with one word when you could say it with a hundred words?. I loved her dearly and it wasn’t unusual for us to be talking in the middle of the night. We were always there for each other and I will dearly miss my good friend. Rest in peace Paula

Ronnie Rotter - 22 days ago

Paula was always the sweetest and dearest person and I adored this special lady. While I I was president of the auxiliary and as I sat on our board at the Donal Bergman Maimonides she helped me on a daily basis. Her loyalty and devotion to her job was amazing. My condolences to all her family and friends. I miss her already.

Paula's devotion to Maimonides Auxiliary and her positive attitude were admired by all who knew her. My condolences to Paula's family and friends.

Vivian Konigsberg - 22 days ago

Paula worked across the hall from me many years ago when I was Director of Volunteer Services (after Stephen Shneiderman). We became fast friends. She was so warm and effervescent - full of life, kindness and great ideas. We spent a lot of time chatting after hours in one office or another. I missed her when I left, and somehow we lost contact over the years. I am so sad to hear that she suffered and hope she is finally at peace. I send my heartfelt condolences to the entire family.

Arlene Brownstein Chinks - 22 days ago

I grew up with Paula in TMR, we were classmates and friends. We reconnected when I became involved at Mount Sinai as a volunteer while Paula was on staff at Maimonides. She was still as I had always known her to be; warm, bubbly, sweet and real. My condolences to her friends and family. RIP you will not be forgotten .

Gloria Pascal - 22 days ago

An ambassador of goodness, sweetness, organization, congeniality, Paula had it all. The accolades from her colleagues are a testament to her contribution to the very fabric of Maimonides Geriatric Centre. She was the the heart beat of the Auxiliary. A truly special person!

I was so very sorry and saddened to hear of Paula's passing. She was a wonderful, devoted secretary and a very good friend.

My heartfelt condolences to her family and friends and may her memory be for a blessing. Anne Perlman.

Stephen Schneiderman - 23 days ago

It has been almost 40 years since I worked across the hall from Paula as the Director of Volunteers at Maimonides. I can’t forget her kindness welcoming me to the facility. She was warm, thoughtful, bubbly at times and always tried to be helpful and kind. Affable and outgoing she did her level best to make a difference and she did.

tracey winter - 23 days ago

I remember Paula and can still see her face as I too worked alongside her at Maimonides. If memory serves, I remember chatting with her from time to time and even though she often wasn't feeling 100%, that didn't stop her commitment to Maimonides. May she rest in peace and may her family be spared any further sorrow. With deep sympathy, Tracey Winter

Paula was the heart and soul of the Auxiliary for so very many years. She kept things running smoothly with her outstanding organizational skills, and her positivity shined through, even throughout her lengthy battle. Paula, we will all miss your smiling face.

Baila Aspler - 23 days ago

To her special cousins, I am heartbroken by this news. She spoke about you so often and know that you visited recently. She couldn't stop talking about how happy she was to see you. When I spoke to Paula before leaving for Israel on Feb. 1 she was upbeat, as usual, and saying everything was fine and she was looking foward for my return (I am still in Israel). We spoke regularly and I would see her occasionally when she was up to it. I met her when my mother was at Maimonides and we became fiends and confidantes over the years, With all her years of suffering and pain, she had such a positive outlook and attitude. She was a tremendous source of support for me during my husband's illness and kept checking up on me almost daily to see how I was doing. I valued her friendship and will miss her terribly. Her suffering is over. I will always cherish her memory. Baila Aspler
