Paula Marie McKenzie
May 27, 1958 – June 4, 2019
Winchester, VA – formerly of Wellersburg, PA, passed away peacefully at her home on June 4, 2019, after a lengthy struggle with rheumatoid arthritis.
Born May 27, 1958 in Frostburg Miner’s Hospital as twin #1; she was the daughter of the late Harry (Corky) and Esther (Lechliter) McKenzie, who tragically passed away two days after Paula. She was also preceded in death by her niece Summer McKenzie, grandson Cameron McKenzie and granddaughter Camberlynn McKenzie.
Survived by brother Troy McKenzie and wife Connie, Wellersburg, PA; sister Sharon Shaffer and husband Rod, Hyndman, PA; twin sister Pauline McKenzie-Hill and husband Rick, Pinellas Park, FL; and sister Tammy Withers, Hyndman, PA; three children, Dillon Hosier, Los Angeles, CA; Chase McKenzie and Dustin McKenzie, both of Winchester, VA; granddaughters Destiny Holle and Heaven McKenzie.
Paula was a hairstylist for ten years who, early in her training, practiced on her sisters – not always with the intended result. She worked for 28 years at Berryville Graphics as a prototype book maker and later as administrative assistant.
Paula was gregarious, fun-loving, humble, compassionate, generous and kind. In true McKenzie fashion, she was a great storyteller, loved to fish, considered everyone a friend and never a stranger. She and her twin sister Pauline shared a special and uncommon bond that can only be experienced by twins. She was artistic and creative, once winning a vacation to Hollywood, CA as the prize for designing the anniversary flag for Berryville Graphics. But most of all, Paula loved children, all children; within hours of meeting her, most were calling her Aunt Paula.
A remembrance ceremony will be held at Jim Barnett Park, Rotary Field, Winchester, VA beginning at 2 pm on Thursday, June 13, 2019.
A combined service will then be held for Paula and her mother at Harvey H. Zeigler Funeral Home, Inc., 169 Clarence St. Hyndman, PA. Friends will be received on Friday June 14, 2019 from 6 to 9 pm and Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 10 am. The funeral service will begin at 11 am, with Pastor Ken Haines officiating.
We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to her very special friends Phoebe Reeve, Morgan Carroll and Shelby Wean, as well as Blue Ridge Hospice in Winchester.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.

To all of Paula's family, I am so sad of hearing of Paula's passing, way too soon but I know she is at peace now along with her beloved grandchildren. She always called me Aunt Jo and we had quite the conversations, loved her dearly and hated to see her suffer. My heartfelt prayers for all of Paula's family.

Thank you, Aunt Jo, for your kind words of comfort.
