Eulogy

Paulette Juanita Froome-John was born on July 22nd 1959 in Mt. Airey, Westmoreland, Jamaica, West Indies. She was the seventh of ten children by Leila and the late Hylton Froome.

After completing her early years of study in Westmoreland, Paulette lived with her Aunt Margaret and cousins Lloyd and Carol, in Denbigh, Clarendon, where she attended Denbigh Primary School and later graduated from Vere Technical High School. She then moved to Kingston and worked at both Medical Associates Lab and Central Medical Lab. Paulette migrated to the United States in January of 1980 and lived in Brooklyn, New York. While working at Merlite Industries, she met her future husband Herman John and they were married on September 19th, 1981. Together they have four children: Robert, Nicole, Natalie, and Tracey John. The family moved to Uniondale, Long Island where Paulette focused on raising her children by staying home until they were of school age. Paulette returned to work outside the home, by joining the Association for the Help of Retarded Children (AHRC). Paulette’s passion for working with the developmentally disabled population led her to take a second job with the Working Organization for Retarded Children (WORC) and she continued to work with these organizations until she parted this life.

Paulette was a kindhearted, loving and sacrificial mother with high expectations of her children, accepting nothing but their best in whatever they did. She wanted her children to have the best in life and believed that they would get it by always giving and doing their best. She practiced what she preached by giving her best to anyone and everyone around her. When she decided to do something, it was ‘never by halves’. She put her ALL into caring for those around her. She went above and beyond what was expected of her, in order to make sure that everyone around her was comfortable and happy.

One of her greatest joys from which she received much satisfaction, besides her children and family, was cooking and having people enjoy her dishes. It was one of her expressions of love. No one dared to leave her home without tasting at least a little of something that she prepared, for to do so would be the greatest insult to her, and ‘do not forget your doggie bag’ either! Her desire for excellence drove her to perfecting her now infamous potato roti, which initially was not so famous. Learning from her sister-in-laws, her first batch of roti came out about an inch thick, hard as a brick and more suitable as a Frisbee than food! Giving up was not an option for her, so she tweaked and tweaked and tweaked and tried and tried and tried until she got it just the way she wanted it… a life example for all of us.

That type of perfectionism was not limited to the kitchen. She was probably the most dedicated employee one could ever meet. There was a desire that came from within to always do her best. She would always say, “If I’m going to do something, I might as well do it right.” Paulette was a lover of people and developed a genuine affection for those whom she cared for in her work, especially her clients (also known as the ladies). It was not uncommon for one of ‘her ladies’ to call her at home just to ask a question or to be seen at some of her family gatherings. For Paulette, they were just another extension of her family. She was so accepting of everyone, that if she met you once, you were welcome in her home. She was a good example of God’s 2nd greatest commandment (Mark 12:31): “Thou shalt love your neighbor as yourself.”

Paulette loved family gatherings and the interactive activities, which go on at these events. She was responsible for introducing the card game Kalooki and the anticipated, exciting gift swapping activity the ‘Chinese auction.’ It was especially during these gatherings that one of Paulette’s loves shined brightly. The love of laughter! In addition to being on the dance floor, one always knew where she was at the party, because her laughter could be heard a mile away. It was unique, to say the least. It was vibrant, contagious, head back, feet up, high-pitched, and from the heart and soul.

Family for Paulette was not limited to laughter and fun. Last Christmas as she gathered with family at her mother-in-law’s home, Paulette became serious before the blessing of the food. She was moved to do something that happens only on very rare occasions, public speaking. She stood before the members of her family and all forty-something ‘crowed’ in the dining room. She looked each person in the eye and said “I have something to say to all of you. Don’t ever let ANYONE get between you and your family. No matter what, you have to keep your family close. No one in this world will love you the way your family loves you.” She believed that whole-heartedly.

Paulette loved her family and was dedicated to them with a passion. Whether husband, children, mother, siblings, in-laws, nieces,nephews, grandchildren, adopted children or adopted family (i.e. everyone she came across) you were important to her and she made herself available to help in anyway she could. For example, Paulette was always there to assist her mother in anything. Whether it was related to her health, taking her to the doctor, getting prescriptions, setting appointments, or even something simple such as making her famous carrot cake for her mother’s birthday at her Senior Center, taking her shopping, or even to her hair and nail appointments, she was always ready to bend over backwards to make sure her mother was taken care of. She gave to her family until there was no more to give and then somehow always found even more to give when it wasn’t even needed.

One of the greatest testaments to Paulette’s goodness is all of you who have joined us in celebrating her life. She is not someone who will only be missed by her family and very close friends but all those whose lives she was privileged to touch. She has given us an example of what it means not only to have faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, whom she accepted as a pre-teen, but what it means to treat each other the way that Jesus wants us to. Paulette’s spirit was so full of joy that whomever came into contact with her, even for a moment, walked away smiling just a bit brighter. She will surely be missed, but her legacy of kindness and generosity shall remain in the hearts of all who were blessed to know her.

Little Did We Know That Morning

Little did we know that morning
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again
