Obituary

Paula Sue Dlugosz, age 76, passed away on Saturday, December 16, 2017. She was born on June 21, 1941 to Stanley and Bernice Dlugosz in San Antonio, TX.

In 1965, she graduated from Our Lady of the Lake with a Bachelor degree in Political Science.

Paula knew the value of an education and continued to strive to better herself and others. She taught school fulltime while attending law school at night. She did take time off from law school to help care for her terminally ill mother. In 1973, Paula graduated from St. Mary's School of Law fulfilling her childhood dream of becoming an attorney.

She was employed at the City Attorney's office in San Antonio for over 25 years. In 1989, she received her Appellate Certification with great joy.

Paula absolutely loved New Orleans. The highlight of her professional career was arguing cases before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. One of her fondest memories of the City was having lunch prepared and served by Emeril Lagasse.

Paula had a passion for the Cinema, Politics and photography. She was the most tender-hearted person with her animals. She rescued many precious animals in her lifetime. Paula was unique and certainly one of a kind. There will never be anyone quite like her.

She is survived by her sister, Debby Pettigrew; brother-in-law, Lee Pettigrew; sister, Mary Ann Grome; sister-in-law, Audrey Dlugosz; Uncle Richard Smith along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, lifelong friends and Tuko the cat.
