Memorial Service for sp. Paula (Pola) Kamienski Gadowski


Paula's family and friends will gather to celebrate her life in a service on November 18, 5:00 p.m. at the Polish Hall, 3832 North Interstate Avenue, Portland.  There will be many pictures of Paula, lots of music, and a chance to meet and talk with others who knew and love Paula.  After, there will be food so please plan to stay and share your memories of Paula.  Please wear colorful clothing as this will be a celebration.
If you have a special story about Paula or a picture that you wish to share, it would be a great gift to bring that with you to the service.  There will be a book for you to write or place the story or picture in.  This book will be a great comfort to Paula's family, in particular her son, Chris.
In lieu of flowers, we are requesting any donations be sent to Chris's high school, The Thomas Edison School, 9020 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, Portland, OR, 97225,
We welcome your presence there and look forward to celebrating Paula's life and accomplishments with you all.  Thank you for your many words of kindness as we all face her loss and her new found freedom.
