Birth: Jul. 9, 1927
Staten Island
Richmond County (Staten Island)
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 13, 2013


A resident of Alexandria and Arlington for more than 50 years, died of complications from pneumonia on the morning of Sunday, January 13, 2013, the same date her husband Louis died in 2001. She was 85. Born July 9, 1927 in Staten Island, New York, the daughter of Paul Revere Smith and Grace Frank Smith. She attended Dongan Hall (now Staten Island Academy), moved to Washington DC, and graduated from Holton Arms and Vassar College. Paula married Dr. Louis Arnoldi at St. John's Church in Washington, DC in 1962. Paula had a lifelong love of travel. She worked as a travel agent for Thomas Cook & Sons and then, following her marriage, continued to travel the world extensively, and usually on freighters, with Dr. Arnoldi. Paula enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, and the symphony, and was extraordinarily proficient at needlepoint. She also instilled in her extended family a love of computers, beginning with her extensive use of the original Commodore 64. Predeceased by her brother Peter, Paula is survived by her sister, Jean Wilmer, and her step-daughters, Kathy Almeida and Patricia Robinow, as well as step-grandchildren, step great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, great nephews and great nieces, and two great-great nephews. Services will be held at Arlington Cemetery, where Dr. Arnoldi rests, at a date which has not yet been determined. For details, contact Paula's nephew, Jack Wilmer of Alexandria, VA, at 703-915-0290.
