Priest, Paula Jr.

Paula Priest Jr. died August 25, 2017 just before her 76th birthday. She was a longtime resident of Albuquerque where she came to be closer to family. Born in Lubbock Texas and later living in Las Vegas, Paula was someone that once you met, you never forgot. She was loving, outspoken, feisty and will be missed dearly by many.

Paula was preceded in death by her mother Grace Morgan, father Paul Priest and brother Michael Priest. She leaves behind two daughters, Misti Hopkins and DeAnn Paul, a step brother Clay and his wife Robbie Childs, step-brother Dick Childs, a sister-in-law Mary Priest, several nieces and nephews and LOTS of friends she held dear to her heart.

Cremation has occurred, however, she will be laid to rest â€" next to her father Paul Priest (as requested) along with the remains of her beloved wolf Timbra. A small graveside service will be held Friday, September 15, 2017 at 11 AM at Sandia Memorial Gardens, 9500 San Pedro Dr NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113. No flowers please. Paula was a great lover of animals both domestic and wild so if you choose to do anything, make a donation to the zoo or any animal shelter in her memory â€" she would love that.
