She grew up in Richmond, Indiana and God orchestrated her move to Lafayette in 1988, so she could meet John Yuill. They were married on September 22, 1990. They enjoyed 31 years of marriage. Paula worked for over 30 years in healthcare, mainly as a phlebotomist in the laboratory. She loved taking care of the patients and putting them at ease.
