March 2, 1964 - June 3, 2021
On Thursday, June 3, 2021, Paula Gregory, 57, loving daughter, sister, and aunt, passed away at the age of 57. A resident of Lyman, South Carolina, Paula was born on March 2, 1964, in Greer to Peggy and Billy Gregory. She attended James F. Byrnes High School in Duncan, South Carolina and worked mostly as a chef at Capris Italian Restaurant, Greer, SC, which she owned along-side her partner. She displayed great cooking skills and was known for making one of the best steaks around. She had a passion for NASCAR and her favorite NASCAR driver was Bill Elliot, which she instilled in her two nephews at a young age. An avid Clemson Tiger football fan, who loved to talk football. Paula was known for her quick wit, clever humor, and nonchalant attitude and could easily bring the entire room into a roar of laughter with just one story. She had a deep love for her two nephews, who she called “her boys” and was involved in their life at an early age. She would often take them fishing where she would have to jump into the lake to retrieve let-loose fishing rods and tackle boxes. Paula would take “her boys” to the Little Cricket convenience store where they would leave with bags filled with candy. She loved her mother dearly and they spent most of their time together. She and her brother had a special bond that could not be broken. They looked out for each other and loved each other deeply. Paula was preceded in death by her partner, Bonnie Hannah. She is survived by her mother, Peggy Holden; a brother Jeffery (Debbie) Gregory and her two nephews, Thomas (Courtney) Gregory and Andrew Gregory. A private ceremony will be held by the family where she will be laid to rest next to her Granny and Papa Smith. Online condolences may be made to www.thewoodmortuary.com.
