She was such a good person. She introduced me to the Collierville Garden Club and we had many a yoga session at the Y. We kept in touch through Facebook. I am so sorry and my condolences to her husband and family. She will be missed.

Paulette will missed by all of us from the Collierville YMCA yoga community. She always had a smile for us! She was gentle, gracious and kind. EVERY time I saw her, I felt like it was such an honor to share special quiet moments together. May the grace of the Lord be with her for all eternity.
