Obituary Notice

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.

  1. Talk about an almost life long and loyal friend! Paulette will be missed greatly by me. She was our clerk when I was on the Village Council in the 70’s. She was always there to assist me during my 50 years in the Real Estate Business. When I retired and decided to run for township supervisor, I asked her to be our clerk and run with me. To no one’s surprise she stepped up to the plate again for purpose of helping the community!
    My sincere condolences to her whole family. And yes I still miss Gary!

  2. Paulette was a kind and caring individual and a little sassy. She always had a comment to make with a smile that followed that comment She loved her family and also her dear friends. She will be greatly missed by everyone in her community. RIP Paulette. You made it HOME

  3. Paulette was a great and caring woman. The community has lost a treasure. She was a true friend and always there when you needed her, both personally and professionally.
