DOBRATZ, Marie Paulette

1952 - 2024

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Marie Paulette (Paulie), on February 22, 2024, at the age of 71.

Paulette loved life in general. She had a great sense of humor and a sharp memory. She loved to tell stories and she could name every single member of one family.

Her passion for music was inevitable. She would sit in her grey recliner with her headphones on listening to her tunes singing along and tapping her feet. Her tunes were the oldies. Her top hits were American Woman by Lenny Kravits, Eight Days a Week by the Beetles, You Are My Sunshine by Jasmine Thompson and Daydream Believer by The Monkess.

She volunteered at The Salvation Army once a week for many years. Her favorite activity was to go for a drive and of course shopping. She loved to shop at Dollar Store and Giant Tiger at any time of the day. Before heading home, a stop was made at Tim Horton’s for a diet coke and a plain donut.

Paulette was predeceased by her husband Francis. She is survived by her far away friend Tina Schukan Davidson whom she loved dearly. She is also survived by her friends and staff of Community Living Kirkland Lake.

A celebration of life will be held at 4 Tweedsmuir Road on April 5, 2024, at 1 p.m.

Life Well Lived

A life well- lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace,

From someone who has made our world a brighter, better place.

It’s filled with moments, sweet and sad.

With smiles and sometimes tears,

With friendships formed and good times shared,

And laughter through the years,

A life well-lived is a legacy,

Of joy and pride and pleasure,

A living lasting memory,

Our grateful hearts will treasure.

Rest in Peace Paulette.
You were a remarkable woman.
The stories you told and the memories that were shared have put a smile on my face for the past 12 years and for that alone, you will be missed.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to friends, family and staff. The care and love Pauline was given was genuine and full of compassion. Being a former RPN of CLKL and having been a part of Pauline’s care, I had the grace of getting to know her, be part of her life and will treasure the memories of the laughs we shared. She truly was a remarkable and loving woman. May she rest peacefully
(Pauline! Please give my Blacky some kisses for me!️)
Love Christine

My sincere condolences on the passing of Paulette. I had the pleasure of working with her when I worked at First street. She had personality plus & if your day wasn't going perfect, she could sense it & would turn your day into a better one & have you laughing so hard.
Especially the time she joked around & told me she put the darn cat in the freezer. Then she burst out laughing & said "I'm just joking" What a girl! Lol
I love you then, I love you now, my sweet Paulie you'll always be!!
