Obituary

Paula Elizabeth Burbey Browder, age 75, of Pittsboro, died Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at the UNC Hospice House in Pittsboro.

Paula was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 7, 1945 to the late Curtis Markham Burbey and Virginia Lindberg Burbey. She moved to North Carolina after she met and married William Henry Browder, Jr. of Wallace NC when she was 20.  As an adopted southerner she earned her Bachelor’s degree from UNC-W and Master’s Degree in Social Work from UNC-CH.  Helping others was her life’s passion!  Over her years of work in private practice and at the Lumberton Children’s Clinic she touched the lives of countless families, each of whom was special to her.

Paula is survived by her beloved husband of 55 years,  Bill Browder, son; William Curtis "Curt" Browder and wife Tessa Laney of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, daughter; Elizabeth "Libby" Parins and husband David of Carrboro, one grandson; Bjorn Parins, and one brother Mark Burbey of Racine, Wisconsin.  She is also survived by her sister-in-law Emily Lee and her husband Cameron of Wallace NC, and her dear nephews Ryke and Timothy Longest and their families.
