Lenore Paul, of Center St., Ludlow, passed away at home on Sunday, February 1. The daughter of Elinor (Sullivan) and Gerald (Jerry) Paul, she was a life-long resident of Ludlow. A graduate of Ludlow High School, she went on to attend American International College (AIC) in Springfield where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education with a minor in English in 1970. She then completed her Master's degree and CAGS (Certificate in Advanced Graduate Studies) at AIC. 
    In 1970, Lenore began her career as a first grade teacher at Chapin Street Elementary School. She remained an educator in the Ludlow school system for the rest of her life, teaching fifth grade at first Chestnut St. and then Veterans Park schools.
