Obituary for Paulette Fuller Dawkins

Paulette, Pretty, Cutie or whatever you want to call her, was a beautiful woman. She was born in Kingston, Jamaica on October 7, 1955, to the union of Norman Fuller and Veronica Pratt. She attended Mr. Gregory Basic School, then Duhaney Park Primary and later went to Pembroke Junior Secondary. Paulette was a determined young woman, and whatever she puts her mind to, she would follow through with it, and no one could deter her from her goals.
In 1974 she was baptized at the Trinitarian Baptist Assembly. She became the first secretary of the Young People Endeavors. Paulette was the first female to play the drum, which was not an easy task, but being the person she was, she made it seems quite natural. Through her commitment she became professional and wherever she went and saw the drum it was almost impossible for her not to play.
During that same year, Paulette immigrated to the United States, where she obtained her Associate degree in Mental Health at Kings Borough College and her Bachelor’s in Psychology at Lehman College. After a few years, Paulette went on to earn a Master’s of Divinity at The New York Theological Seminary.
Paulette was an exemplary individual, kind, loving, sympathetic but stern. She loved and adored children but never allowed anyone to settle for mediocrity. Paulette was a disciplinarian and a well-organized woman of substance. She pushed you to realize your goals and would do everything in her power to help you to achieve them. Paulette saw the best in everyone she encountered. In 1999, Paulette married Virbert Dawkins, and they enjoyed a beautiful relationship. They were like two peas in a pod, and both enjoyed each other’s company watching African movies in the past-time.
Paulette was well organized and loved the color purple. Upon entering her house, you could tell that purple was her favorite color. For this matter, you could call her the queen of purple. She was immaculate in everything she did and was a woman of class. Paulette was a friend, a confidant, an advisor, a counselor and more. She was jovial, happy but strong-willed and would argue a point, but let her be because you would be going against a rock. Paulette chose her friends and knew how to keep them, she enjoyed long-lasting relationships, with those she called friends and loved them to the core.
This woman of God, a wife, a sister, a friend, a mother, took sick approximately two years ago. She fought hard with the disease cancer. She was active in faith, very courageous and confident that she would beat the disease. Cancer was one battle that proved too much for her. The Master called, and she answered. Paulette went on to glory, leaving loved ones to celebrate her life.
Paulette would never want us cry but instead celebrate her life and legacy that is left behind. She leaves behind her husband, daughter, four stepchildren, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and a host of friends and confidants.
