Paulette was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She always had a smile and a lovely word for everyone. She was a pleasure to see at Rodens and my favorite memories of her were the Rodens store in the Mall at Christmas. May God fill your heart with precious memories of a beautiful heart that touched so many people. Rest in Peace Paulette 😇

I love you and I will greatly miss you...I know you are in a better place and you don't have to suffer anymore. I remember when I was younger Karen and I would come and stay the weekend with you as often as we could because you would let us stay up late at night watching tv something we never got to do at home I will never forget those days. I love you your sister Paula.

To Paulette’s boys: I am so sorry for your loss! I am thankful I had the privilege of knowing your mother and being able to call her a friend! She and I along with many others had some fun times and made lots of wonderful memories working at Roden’s. I know that you guys know she would give someone the shirt off her back in the middle of a snowstorm and worry how she would stay warm! That’s the kind of heart she had! A heart of gold! I love Paulette and will miss her beautiful face! You all are in my thoughts and prayers!
