Paulette Theresa Copeland-Picott

September 7, 1947- February 18, 2021

On Thursday, February 18, 2021, our all-wise God called home our loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, niece and friend, Paulette T. Copeland-Picott to her eternal rest. Paulette was born on September 7, 1947 to the late Sarah Peoples Copeland and Linwood Copeland Sr. Paulette graduated from Crestwood High School in 1965. She later furthered her education by obtaining her certification as a Nursing Assistant, where she expanded on her gift of caring for others just as she did for her mother.

“Letta Paul and Titty Boo” as she was affectionately called by her siblings was known for her stunning beauty and sweet easy-going nature. She was full of love for God and family; it was especially displayed towards generations of nieces, nephews, cousins, her children and grandchildren. She was a compassionate soul that embodied faith, hope and love for all, offering kindness so that no one felt left behind.

She leaves to cherish her loving memory, four children: Christopher D. Carter, Christal K. Jones (Shawn), Shirlynn Harvey-Cowell and David A. Harvey Jr.; one sister Pearlie Mae Edwards (Aaron); two stepsisters, Phyllis Leathers (Marvin), and Faith Ricks; one stepbrother Julius N. Ricks; one special aunt, Marian Peoples- Sykes (Harry); ten grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. Paulette is forever loved and will be missed by all.
