Paula Marks Hollihan (1962-2013) Paula was born in Germany and lived her younger years as a military child. She finally landed in Marco Island, Florida where she graduated from high school in Naples. Paula went on to get her Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Florida. Paula has been vigorously fighting Lymphoma cancer for the past 14 years. Paula's main goal was to see her children graduate from high school and get them enrolled into college. Paula was the type of person that found good in everything and everyone. She tried to put a smile on everyone's face. She was a mother to most, trying to fix everybody's problems. She accomplished that with the utmost love and security of her family and friends. Paula was the most amazing person that anyone could have known. We love you and are very proud of what you did for everyone. From her father Paul, her mother Louise, her brother Greg, and wife Sally, their children Jessie, and Bobby, her daughter Siera, son Len Jr., and husband Len, and all of our families, we love you and you will always be in our hearts. Paula would also like me to thank Craven Thompson & Associates Inc. for all the support throughout her career. Also to all her friends and acquaintances, thank you very much. Paula, we will always love and miss you! There will be a service for Paula in mid January, and will be posted at a later date.
