Paula Lynn Rodriguez, 62, passed away on June 23, 2023, in Dallas, TX. She was born on July 26, 1960, in Terrell, TX, to parents Gene and Jerry (Hall) Thorn.

Paula served in the United States Army. Her courage is a testament to her unwavering patriotism and devotion to her country. Paula's military service was a source of great pride for her, as well as for all of us who knew her. She was also a member of the Ladies’ Auxiliary in her local area. 

Paula had an eye for fashion design. Whether it was sketching new designs or bringing them to life with fabric and thread, Paula's talent was boundless. Playing cards and solving puzzles were ways for her to unwind and reconnect with loved ones. Dancing held a special place in Paula's heart. With each graceful step, she brought smiles to those around her.
