Paulette was born August 27, 1948 to Thomas and Margaret Maxine Herzer in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. She was united in marriage August 28, 1980 to George Lee Davis in Denton, Texas. Paulette was an active and longtime member of New Salem FWB Church in Decatur. She loved her church family and lead the congregation in Praise and Worship for several years. She found great joy in planning the yearly Christmas program and singing weekly specials.

Paulette cherished her grandchildren and watched countless sporting events, band concerts and all types of activities. She looked forward to Saturday nights when the whole family gathered at her house for hamburgers and a good time of Rummy. Paulette was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend to many who will miss her dearly. After a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease the Lord took her home. The family wishes to thank everyone for their thought and prayers through this challenging time.
