Easton, NY – Paula V. Langdon, 90, of Easton NY, peacefully entered eternal rest on Thursday, September 29th, 2016 in the comfort of her own home.
Paula was the daughter of James Vendette and Julia LaBelle. She was born in New York City, where she studied pre-med and then moved to Saratoga Springs where she worked in Pathology at Saratoga Hospital. While working at the hospital, she received a lifetime state appointment and taught emergency room crisis management.
After leaving her position at the hospital, Paula and her husband, Nate Langdon, invested more time in their publishing business. Together they started the Wise Shoppers newspaper on a mimeograph machine. This was in the basement of a Greenwich, NY hotel. They eventually moved the business to Broad Street in Schuylerville, NY. The paper grew into one of the most popular in the area, with the assistance of niece, Roberta Gilligan.
Paula was an educated, successful business woman. Once retired, she traveled the world, creating many great memories that she enjoyed sharing with loved ones. Paula was a very independent woman and had a huge heart filled with love for her family, animals, and the children of St. Jude’s research hospital.
Survivors include her great nephew Christopher Crocker who resided with her; her two nieces Debbie Crocker and Roberta Gilligan, as well as several cousins.
There were no public calling hours for Paula Langdon.
