Paula L. Bowers, age 72, Born to Eternal Life and found peace on January 1, 2021. Preceded in death by her beloved parents, John and Rose (nee Tomasello) Smukalla and John H. Bowers, father to their daughters. Loving and devoted mother of Gina M. (Chris) Chiappa and Jennifer L. Bowers, whom she felt were blessings from God. Nana to her cherished “boys”- Adin and Nick Chiappa. Her love for her family was immeasurable and will always be with them. Also survived by nieces, nephews and family who she loved very much as well as her dear and wonderful friends whose constant love and support she cherished.

Paula was a beautiful, loving, and bright soul. Her infectious laugh, warm smile and never-ending care for those she loved will always be remembered.

A Mass to celebrate her life will be held when we can safely gather.
