Memorial Fund for Paula Yao

Paula Yeo passed away on July 18th. She was 59 years old. Paula and her husband Young Kim are the owner's of the Courthouse Cafe and beloved by many. Paula was the spirit and the smile behind the grill. Many will remember her laughter, hugs and treats she would provide alongside a hot meal. Before coming to America, Paula was a DJ in Korea at a discotheque and she shared her love of music with all of us by playing a wide variety everyday.  Along with great music, there were always fresh flowers in the cafe to brighten our days.

This fund is being set up to help her husband, Young, with expenses and loss of income. Young has had to temporarily close the cafe so he could be with Paula and manage the arrangements after her passing.  Paula and Young were married 35 years and have one son.

This is our way to assist a man who is there for us every day and to pay tribute to his beautiful wife, Paula.
