DE SOTO — Paula Kent Roosevelt (Prather), 65, passed away Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018.
She was born Aug. 30, 1952, in Union City, Tennessee, to Martha Jean Prather (McBride) and Robert Wayne Prather.
Paula is survived by her loving family: husband, Steve Donnel Roosevelt; daughter, Jenifer Jeanann Roosevelt; granddaughter, Celia Rose Miller; son-in-law, Ian Andrew Miller; and brother, Robert Stephen Prather.
Paula was a beloved beautician and business owner in Carbondale, for more than 30 years. She will be remembered for her love of cooking, reading, murder mysteries, and sushi, her compassion for strays (four- and two-legged), her whimsy, and her fierce adoration of her granddaughter.
A gathering of friends and family will be in midsummer.
Walker Funeral Home and Crematory of Carbondale is entrusted with arrangements.
