Paula was born to Rev. and Mrs. Paul Fletcher on May 5, 1936, in Houston, Texas.

Paula served the Lord as a minister’s wife, a missionary in Africa for the Southern Baptists and an Administrative Assistant for numerous departments at Baylor University. Paula loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing. She liked to travel, go on international cruises, and see God’s creation driving in the motor home. She loved the Lord most of all and was a very devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She will be greatly missed by her family and those who knew her. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, at Wilkirson Hatch Bailey Funeral Home in Waco, Texas, with Rev. Jim Houser officiating.
