Delong -- Paula G. De Long died at home Sunday, January 20, 2002. Mrs. De Long has been a distinguished personality in Sandoval County and throughout the region for many years. Paula started her teaching career at a very early age, since good teachers were hard to find. She continued her education through night and summer school while teaching. Her teaching assignments included Bernalillo, Corrales, Domingo, Guadalupe, Placitas, San Luis, and La Ventana and others. She taught elementary through high school. She also taught adult education classes. She went on to serve the Bernalillo school systems for the majority of her 49 year career in the educational field. She was Director of the Title One Program the last few years of her educational endeavor from where she later retired. Paula served on many advisory boards and was a charter member of the Planning and Zoning Board in Bernalillo.
She received the LULAC Abrazo Award, was a member of Phi Alpha Theta and a member of the various Sandoval County boards. She was a charter member of the BDC and Bernalillo Public Library. Paula enjoyed working in her cactus gardens, watching the Red Socks play baseball and traveling. We are proud to recognize these efforts and contributions made by Mrs. Paula De Long and honor her for all that she has done for students for several generations.
She is survived by her sister, M. Helen Sandoval; brother, Restie A. Sandoval and his wife, Annie, all of Bernalillo as well as numerous nephews and nieces.
