Mullany, Maria "Pauly (Garraus)"
Nov. 25, 1946 - Nov. 23, 2013
Pauly was born in Cuba, and came to the United States as a teenager. Eventually she settled in Sarasota where she lived most of her life. Pauly is survived by two children, Eddy Lima and Luly Henneberg, a granddaughter Elisa Lima, 3 brothers, Jose Miguel Garraus, Juliancho Garraus and Alfredo Garraus, 3 sisters, Blanca Savigne, Vivi Sierra, and her other half, her twin, Maria Hanna. She was predeceased by two brothers, Jesus Garraus and Francisco Garraus. Pauly was known for her compassion, warmth, and love. Above all, she was known for her loyalty. She could be counted on in times of distress. She loved all and was loved by all. Her passions were life, family, friends, her dog Sashi, and her gazebo, which grew and grew over the years. She loved working outdoors, laying rocks and stones, and planting everything. Pauly loved life. She encouraged her own daughter to be less responsible and embrace life. She would not want anyone to be swallowed up in grief and stop living. She would want all to focus on the hope of seeing her again. A hope she herself spoke about before falling asleep in death. This hope which she embraced will be discussed in a memorial service given in her behalf December 14, 2013 at 7:00pm, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 5256 Proctor Road, Sarasota, FL 34233. Special thanks are in order to David Hannon. His insistence on getting Pauly help bought us all precious time with her, and his devotion to the end will never be forgotten. Also thanks are in order to Maria Robles who proved to be a true friend, and to Nury Gonzalez for extending herself greatly in her care. Our thanks also go out to Doctors Elsbree and Fleegler who stepped in at the last moment, providing the compassion and direction we needed. Thanks to all who visited and all who helped in her care. There were those who were there from the beginning and those that stepped in at the end. To list you all along with your deeds would certainly fill this whole page. Above all, special thanks to God, whose help was evident from the very first day. In lieu of flowers or other sentiments hug your mother and whoever else you hold dear and say as Pauly would to all, "Te Amo."
