Paulette was more than a spouse to her husband, more than a mother to her children, more than a grandmother, sister, aunt, or friend. She will truly be missed by all who knew her. She was our rock on which to lean. She was the rock that stood unbreakable against many, many storms. The rock that resisted the torrents, and the rock that pushed back the currents of life. She was the rock where the lighthouse stood.
Even though she’s gone from us, that light and her loving spirit will brighten our paths for many generations to come and she will never be forgotten.
Four Oaks Funeral Home of Huntsville has been entrusted with the arrangements for Mrs. Paulette Chitwood.
