Paula Eileen Tedrow-Sauvageau, age 73, of Winter Park, Florida, passed away on April 25, 2021. Paula was born on September 29, 1947 in Lake City, Florida to Betty and Paul Tedrow.
She received her degree in Education from the University of Central Florida and was a middle school teacher for 26 years in Orange County. Paula dearly loved her pets her entire life, which included many dogs, cats and birds over the years. Her grandchildren Evan and Michael held an incredibly special place in her heart, and she loved spending every moment with them. Her greatest joy was found in nature, especially when traveling, hiking, and camping across the country with her family and friends. Her biggest dream was to visit Hawaii, which she accomplished. Paula was partner in life to Dee Tedrow-Sauvageau for more than 35 years, and the two were married in a beautiful ceremony in Kissimmee, Florida on June 2, 2018.
Paula was preceded in death by her parents Betty and Paul, and her sister Sharon Latham. She is survived by her wife Dee, her daughter Kim Cooper, close family friend Eloy Rojas, and grandchildren Evan and Michael Cooper, her son Kris Andre, sister Debbie and her husband Bob Miller and nephews Robby and Casey Miller of Gainesville, Fl, in-laws Cindy and David Bailey, and niece and nephew Nikki and Nathan Bailey of Virginia Beach, VA, and Janie Sauvageau and Tommy Chan of Oahu, HI.
