April 25, 1950 - March 24, 2018
Paula Carroll Burroughs (Leone), 67, is now free to walk with our Lord. She passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2018 with family surrounding her, offering their love. She was born in Atlantic City, raised in Oceanville, and graduated from Holy Spirit High School. The oldest of three daughters, Paula, known as Carroll by her family, was a unique, artistic mother and friend. She was a gifted painter, piano player, guitar player and singer who shared her talents with her family, allowing for beautiful memories that will live on forever. Paula raised two daughters, Donna and Tricia, and when they were grown she worked many years a medical assistant. The true love of her life was her granddaughter, Katie Faith. Katie Faith and her “Nanny” loved to bake, make homemade ice cream, and race around the yard in the golf cart. Paula’s amazing spirit will be especially missed by her best buddy old pal, Patty Smith, and her “Papa Bear”, Henry Butterhoff. Our dear Paula was received in Heaven by her mother, Marguerite “Carroll” Leone; her father, Vincent Leone; her sister, Marian Sweeney; her uncle, Lou Diorio; and lifelong friend, Paul Smith. Left here to celebrate her memories are her partner, Henry Butterhoff; daughter, Donna Kurtz; son-in-law, Artie Kurtz; daughter, Tricia Burroughs; Aunt Margie Diorio; sister, Marguerite Charkalis; brother-in-law, Dr. Jim Charkalis; nephews, Dr. Jason Charkalis, James Charkalis (Erika), Vinnie Charkalis; brother-in-law, Frank Sweeney; nieces, Frances Sweeney, Marian Sweeney; best friend, Patty Smith; goddaughter, Eileen Smith; and friends, Carol and Jim. The family would like to send thanks and blessings to everyone who has helped her in care and in well-being throughout the years. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Diabetes Association in Paula’s name. A viewing will be taking place Thursday, March 29th from 6:00-8:00 PM and again, Friday, March 30th from 9:00-10:00 AM, with a service at 10:00 AM at Wimberg Funeral Home, 400 Liverpool Ave, Egg Harbor City 609-965-0357.
