Paula Marie Threadgill

November 15, 1966 — April 30, 2024

Paula Marie Threadgill, 57, took her first breath in Heaven on April 30th in her home surrounded by her family after a hard-fought and valiant battle with cancer. Her celebration of life will be Saturday, May 4th at 10:00am at Meadowbrook Baptist Church with Rev. Cary Killough officiating. Please do not feel bad if you are late, as she probably will be as well. The family invites you to visit with them immediately following the service.

Paula was born on November 15, 1966, in Longview, Texas to Wayne and Alice Thrasher. Her family relocated to Robinson when she was 7, where she was a 1985 Robinson High School graduate and resided until her death. Immediately after high school, she started her lifelong trade as a hairdresser. She would tell you that she never had to work a day in her life because she truly loved what she did. And throughout the years, her customers turned into family. Paula married Gaylon Threadgill on March 7, 2003, and up until he departed this life in 2022, they filled their years together with adventures, love, and grandkids. 

Paula was the one who always had an open door and a chair at her table for you. No matter where you had been, or where you were going, she welcomed you. She left a lasting impression on so many people with her compassionate spirit, love for life, and willingness to help anyone out. You could often find Paula at the beach, specifically Access Rd 1-A in Port Aransas. If she wasn’t working, at the beach, or with her family, she loved baking and crafting. She crocheted many blankets for loved ones and enjoyed making cakes and decorating sugar cookies. Acts of service is how she often expressed her love.

Paula was preceded in her death by her parents, Wayne and Alice Thrasher, her sister, Glenda Sue Jones, and her husband, Gaylon Threadgill. Left with the void of her absence is her sister, Cindy Thrasher, of Hainesville, and Natasha Thrasher, of Carlsbad, New Mexico; daughters Myla Welch (Brian Welch) of Rowlett, Zoey Threadgill of Robinson, Tammy Daniel (Krag Daniel) of Cleburne, and Ashley Dixon (Lance Dixon) of Charlotte, North Carolina; her favorite people in the world, her grandkids, Jack, Rowan, and Eleanor Welch, Colton and Jaygen Wells, Wyatt Daniel, Taylor and Garrett Dixon; great grandkids Travis and Waylon Wells. She also leaves behind many other beloved family members- some blood and some not.

The family would like to thank Gentle Transitions Hospice for the incredible care provided to Paula by her dear friend, Rhonda. We also want to say how grateful we are to MD Anderson for their exemplary medical staff and the treatment Paula received, that no doubt gave us extra time with her. 

In the end, Paula expressed on many occasions how loved she felt. She was incredibly blessed and in awe of how many people were there fighting this battle with her. She said that some people never experienced the kind of love she had before they died, but she was so grateful to have been able to. So, thank you, for showing up and for meeting her needs and making her feel so loved. We are especially thankful to her church family at Meadowbrook Baptist Church. They have carried our family through some tough times and have shown time and time again they are truly the hands and feet of Jesus.

We ask that any flowers in her memory be sent to Grace Gardens or in lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to MD Anderson at the website listed below.
