Paula Celeste Pobihushchy
Paula Celeste Pobihushchy, 56, of Fredericton, passed away peacefully with her family and closest friends at her side on Friday, February 8, 2019 at the Dr. Everett Chalmer’s Hospital (DECH).
Paula worked at the DECH for several years having spent the majority of her time in the Xray department.
Paula was a gift. A social butterfly with an infectious laugh, she loved spending time with family and friends, listening to music and dancing. She made it her lifelong practice to advocate for the underdog, being a support to anyone in need.
Although Paula did not have children of her own, she treasured her nieces and nephews.
She will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by her mother Joy, father Sidney (pre-deceased), her siblings and their spouses Leah and Denis, Chris and Kate, Teesa and Mark and Andrea and Darren, partner Mark, her nieces and nephews Alexandre, Mylène, Nikola, Natasha, Maria, Joshua, Alexis, Christopher and Gregory, and step-children Courtney, Tyler and Aaron.
Paula’s family thanks the caring doctors, nurses and staff in the ICU and palliative care unit at the DECH. A special thanks to Dr. Gordon MacDonald for his compassion. At last, she took a deep breath and let it go. She breathes easy now.
In memory of Paula, donations to Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Canada Inc. are welcome and appreciated. A memorial service will follow at a later date.
Paula, Queen Fairy, you’re the favourite.
