We are saddened to pass along the news that classmate Paula Miller, on April 30, 2020, lost her battle with cancer. Paula lived in Greece with her husband Vassilis Pantelis. She worked in finance, most recently at Opel Vauxhall Finance and earlier at GM Financial and Ally Financial.
Last year in Shades of Green, Paula shared her thoughts about her recent retirement and her health:
After a wonderful 18 years with GM Financial, which offered me the opportunity to live in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Sweden and to add to my frequent flier miles on trips to almost all European countries, as well as Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Mexico, I retired in June 2018. Having been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2014, I was very grateful to have managed to basically maintain my lifestyle and career for four years, but increasing fatigue and successive treatment failures also led to the realization that I should no longer postpone devoting myself to other important things, like spending more time with my family and friends, and pursuing my personal interests more actively. The past year has been a bumpy one, both physically and mentally, but overall I’m feeling both happy and at peace . . . .”
