We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Paulette Lauraine Hutson, 79, of Marcellus. Paulette passed away July 25, 2022, at home, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born April 11, 1943, in Buchanan, Michigan the daughter of Paul and Dorothy M. (Weaver) Roberts and graduated from Marcellus High School with the Class of 1961.
Paulette earned her associates degree in accounting from Southwestern Michigan College where she graduated Magna Cum Laude and went on to work as the Clerk for the Village of Marcellus, W.L. Molding in Portage, MI as a bookkeeper. She served as an elected official in multiple positions in the Marcellus area, Township Clerk & Village President.
Paulette was an outdoorsy person. She always kept her yard in immaculate condition and could often be found tending to her flower gardens, mowing her lawn or taking care of her pool. When the weather forced her inside you would find her reading the newspaper, watching her favorite tv shows, keeping up with the latest politics or working on a sudoku puzzle.
Paulette had a great sense of humor and a nurturing heart. Whether she was bringing a withering plant back to life or feeding anyone that walked through the door she was always putting others’ needs first.
Remaining to cherish her memory are her children; daughter Melanie Hutson (Jim) and son Stephen Hutson (Sheri); grandchildren Nic Palmer (Shantel), Bryant Hutson (Cynthia), Christian Hutson, Shayne Bowers, and Aleyna Hutson (Derek); Great Grandchildren Gavin Palmer, Lia Palmer and Jackson Palmer; Sister Sue Overley (Bob); nieces and nephews, Lee Palmer (Jen), Travis Roberts (Jen) and Larissa Lersch (Matt); several great nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by Brother Gary Roberts and her parents Paul & Dorothy Roberts.
Donations in Paulette’s memory may be directed to the Care Team Hospice.
