Sunrise: June 11, 1958

A life interrupted. Suddenly and with family at her side, Paula passed away on December 15, 2021 in her 64th year. Predeceased by her parents, Terry and Thelma Hryhor and sister Iris. Loving wife of her high school sweetheart, Brian Petrie, and devoted mother to Meagan and Lyndsay. Fondly remembered by her sisters, Sandra (Roberto), Sheree, and Ellen (Oliver) and nephew, Alexander.
In 1983 after a lengthy courtship, Brian and Paula married. Motherhood came naturally to her when she was blessed with the birth of Meagan followed a short while after by Lyndsay. She was also a model of sisterhood. Loving her was easy.
Paula spent her professional life in the Human Resources industry, having worked for multiple organizations in the course of a 35-year career. She was well-respected by her peers in her profession, sought after for her expertise, strong work ethic and meticulousness.
She and Brian travelled the world together, entertained family on many occasions and enjoyed golf, weather permitting. Paula had many gifts and talents that we all admired; an aptitude for interior design, an ease for entertaining, and baked the best brownies ever.
We will forever miss her beautiful smile, contagious laughter, and her grace. As anticipated, we are bereft.
Private funeral arrangements will be held on Tuesday December 28, 2021, with interment at Holy Cross Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be planned for a later date. For those who wish, donations may be made to the Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund.
Family and friends are invited to view the Funeral Mass on Tuesday December 28,2021 at 12:00 pm.
