Paula Myers

Paula Myers, a beacon of warmth and generosity, passed away peacefully on April 2, 2024, in her hometown of Kokomo, Indiana, where she first graced the world with her presence on October 1, 1956. Known for her selfless spirit and loving nature, Paula's life was a testament to the beauty of giving and nurturing those around her.

The daughter of the late Sharon and Norm Wisher, Paula grew up in a close-knit family, surrounded by the love and camaraderie of her siblings, Amy (Toby) Hubbard, the late Debbie Moorman, Benny (Kim) Wisher, Brian (Lori) Wisher, and Todd Wisher. Her family was her pride and joy, and she extended that same profound love to her own children, Melissa (Kurt) Pace, Terry Warnock, and Matthew (Kelcey) Myers.

Paula's life was further enriched by the laughter and playfulness of her grandchildren, Roger (Leah) Mossholder, Jeremiah (Sara) Mossholder, Brittany (Joey) Facemyer, Jacob Warnock, Mercadise (Chris) Grills, Toby Brown, Bethanie (Jake) Warnock, Kameron (Hannah) Butcher, Terry Warnock III, Imagine Myers, and Oliver Myers. She was predeceased by her beloved granddaughter Isabella Warnock, whose memory remained a tender part of her heart. The next generation of great-grandchildren—Wyatt, Waylon, Weston, Annabelle, Noah, Mitchell, Niko, Ryder, Ryatt, Aiden, Journey, and Kaisyer—also brought immense joy to Paula, who cherished every moment with her growing family. She loved all of her cousins, nieces and nephews as if they were her own children.

For over 50 years, Paula served the community with a smile as a dedicated server at the Waffle House and various other local restaurants. Her work was more than a job; it was an extension of her desire to care for others, making every patron feel like part of her extended family. Her colleagues and customers alike will remember her for her tireless work ethic and the genuine connections she forged over shared meals and stories.

Paula's interests were a reflection of her loving character. She found great pleasure in cooking for family and friends, ensuring no one ever left her house hungry. Her passion for nurturing extended to her four-legged friends, as she adored her dogs Luke, Logan, and Harley and treated them with the same kindness she showed to all living beings.

The words "selfless," "loving," and "generous" only begin to describe Paula. She left an indelible mark on the hearts of everyone she met.

Paula's legacy is one of love and selflessness. Her unwavering dedication to her family, and her work, has left a lasting impact that will continue to inspire and influence for generations to come. She was not just a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend—she was a shining example of the difference one person can make in the lives of many, by simply being compassionate.

As we bid farewell to Paula Myers, we celebrate a life beautifully lived and a heart generously shared. Her presence will be deeply missed, but the love and compassion she bestowed upon us will forever be cherished. Paula's memory will live on in the kindness she showed, the family she adored, and the countless lives she enriched simply by being herself.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. City of Firsts Cremation and Funeral Services was entrusted with the arrangements.
