I remember how smart Pauletta was in school. When she met Earl, she was so smitten by him, she would write his name on her composition books. I remember she would talk about him all the time. You could tell she really fell for him. She married young and had a wonderful life with him. I always enjoyed talking with her. A sweet lady, wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. My prayers are with her entire family....❤️❤️🙏🙏

Never saw Pauletta without a smile on her face, always willing to do for others definitely before herself. May God surround her family with his comforting arms.
