Paula Joyce (Stewart) Weber
Sep 07,1951---Dec 23,2017
Paula Joyce (Stewart) Weber passed away surrounded by loved ones in Kansas City, MO, on December 23, 2017, after battling pancreatic cancer for the past 18 months.  Paula was a huge Chiefs fan, a member of her professional sorority, Beta Sigma Phi, and loved the many cats she has had over the years.  She received her Dad’s beloved classic, a Delta 88 Oldsmobile convertible, which was so long it barely fit in the garage, but that didn’t stop her from cruising around KC, top-down and with a big smile on her face.  Paula loved to surround herself with friends, many of whom she had known since elementary school, dining together and traveling to see them in Texas and Florida.  After living in Austin, Texas, for several years, Paula developed her PJ’s Picante Sauce using all of the native peppers she discovered to breathe some fire into her Northern friends and family.
Paula was born in Independence, MO, on Sept. 7, 1951, graduated from CMSU in Warrensburg, MO, and became an IRS Investigator in Kansas City and Austin.  Paula was a member of the Mission Road Community of Christ and volunteered with Special Olympics, entertaining the children as a clown for many of their events.
Paula is survived by her mother Josephine Stewart, brother-in- law Jim Gathen, Cousins Pam & Dave Byrn & other cousins, former husband John Weber and his children Rich & Chris.  She was preceded in death by her father Jim Stewart, brother Harvey Stewart and sister Nan Gathen.
In lieu of flowers, Paula requested contributions to Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care or a charity of your choice.
All are invited to attend a celebration of Paula’s life that will be held Friday, December 29, 2017 at 11:00 am at Mission Road Community of Christ, 7842 Mission Road, Prairie Village, KS.

Although I have not seen Paula for over 10 years, we were very good friends - we met at work and became friends outside of work and through Beta Sigma Phi. We kept touch at least once or twice a year She was a wonderful person! Sherry Scott Larson

Paula and I met about 25 years ago at a Beta Sigma Phi meeting in Austin. We became best friends for life. How blessed I am to have had Paula and Nan in my life. We spent so many crazy, fun times together. We laughed, cried, danced and vacationed together. I will miss my dear friend tremendously.

Sending heartfelt condolences to your family for your loss. Paula lived a love affair with life, she will be sorely missed. She was such a joy to be around with her great sense of humor. We worked together during the 1980’s and 90’s and became friends. I am glad that Paula is at peace after a struggle with pancreatic cancer. Lea Ann Yoergler
