In the early morning hours of Dec. 17, 2018, four days before her 83rd birthday, Marilyn Ann Lanzo Paul, surrounded by her family, passed from this earthly life. Born Dec.21, 1935 in Boston, MA. to Irene Elizabeth (Case) and Rocco A.Lanzo, Marilyn lived in Revere, MA. until 21 years when she began traveling as an Air Force wife with her high school boyfriend turned husband, Richard D. Paul, also of Revere, MA. Marilyn was a graduate of Revere High School (1953) and earned her degree as a Registered Nurse from New England Deaconess in 1957.
Marilyn and Dick (Richard Paul) married on December 2, 1956 and moved to San Antonio, Texas once he was commissioned in 1957. In their 62 years of marriage, the two were partners in raising their daughters, building careers, and travelling the world. At most bases, Marilyn worked in nursing and became an expert in leadership and intravenous therapy. Wherever they traveled, she served as a volunteer for family services. Upon USAF retirement and for 25 years, Marilyn became a full-time quilter, a part-time quilting teacher, and a dedicated volunteer with the Assistance League of San Pedro, Calif.
In 2010, Mum Paul moved with her lifetime love to New Braunfels, TX to be closer to their daughters and their families. Soon after settling in Gruene Lake Village, Marilyn continued quilting gifts of love (hugs) for family and friends and became an active volunteer for Hope Hospice until her vibrant health was affected over the past months by strokes.
Her peaceful passing in her own home surrounded by family was made possible by the compassionate and skilled caregivers from Hope Hospice and ComeForCare in New Braunfels.
