Paula Louise (Wold) Graham (April 10,1952 - July 25, 2022) resident of Murrells Inlet, SC, formerly of Albuquerque, NM and Austin, TX, unexpectedly passed away on July 25, 2022, at the age of 70.

Paula was born on April 10, 1952, in Kansas City, KS to Mary and Ernest Wold. Along with her beloved older brother Richard, she completed their family of four. Paula graduated from Del Norte High School in Albuquerque, NM in 1970. Her pride and joy were her sons Scott and Mark Rodgers. Paula began her professional career as a teller at First National Bank in Albuquerque and worked her way up to a successful career in finance, proudly retiring from Wells Fargo in 2019.

Paula and her husband Brick Graham met in Albuquerque, NM and were married on October 27, 1990. They moved from Austin, TX to Murrells Inlet, SC in 2006 and found their happy place in a lovely coastal community. Paula’s loves were her family, dog Chitlin, and many dear friends. She enjoyed beach living, card games, gardening, and of course, retired life.

Paula was predeceased by her mother Mary Wold, father Ernest Wold, and brother Richard Wold. She is survived by and so dearly missed by her devoted husband of 31 years, Brick Graham; son Scott Rodgers and wife Melanie Rodgers of Durham, NC; son Mark Rodgers and wife Julie Rodgers of Roseburg, OR; grandsons Tristan Rodgers and Parker Rodgers; children Che Graham, Erika Trujillo, and Rebekah Stone; grandchildren Ryan Schiffer, Nicole Gaeta, Kaela Schiffer, Hannah Graham, Brandon Stone, Hailee Graham and Che Graham; great grandchildren Gracie Reigh Gaeta and Enzo Schiffer.
