By on May 25, 2023

Paula Wright Lipman, age 77, passed away peacefully on May 19, 2023 at Chesapeake Regional Hospital. She was born in Philadelphia, PA on February 21, 1946 to the late Dr. Charles Newbold Wright and Pauline Coleman Wright.

Paula was a devoted homemaker, dedicating her life to caring for her family. She had a passion for Collies and Shelties and worked closely with Northern Virginia Sheltie Rescue for many years.

In her early years, Paula spent her summers in Southern Shores and developed a real love for the ocean. She attended Chatham Hall Prep School from 1960 to 1964 before earning her bachelor’s degree from Goucher College in 1968. She became a member of the Episcopalian community while at Chatham Hall and found great comfort in her faith. She loved music, especially classical music, played piano from an early age, and was a member of the Chatham Hall Choir.

While living in New York City in the 1980’s, she did volunteer work for the New York City Police Foundation. In the 2000’s she was a member of a citizens group in Lower Currituck advocating for fairer treatment for landowners.

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 1, 2023 at Powells Point Christian Church Cemetery, 197 Church Road, Harbinger, NC 27941 with the Rev. David Cenci officiating.
