Paula Arlene Grissom was truly a remarkable person, loved by so many. Born on December 31, 1946 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Murray and Charlene J.

Paula’s spirit will forever live on in the memories and hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.

In addition to her incredible family, Paula leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth. Her grandchildren, including Michael, Charles Junior, Carolynn Faith, Olivia, and Andrew, were the apple of her eye, bringing her immeasurable joy.
