Our beloved mother, grandmother, wife, and friend, Paulette Owens, entered into eternal rest on June 11, 2021 at the age of 73. She was born in San Antonio, Texas to parents: Frank and Viedella Pines on June 10, 1948. In 1965, she met and married the love of her life, Adolph Owens, where they shared a union of 54 blissful years. They began their family of four, raising their children together. Paulette was a faithful woman of God. It was important to her that she taught the biblical principles to her family, as this tool helped them navigate throughout their own lives. She was a strong, caring, and devoted woman who adored her family dearly. In her spare time, she enjoyed shopping and she had a passion for helping others. Paulette was an excellent listener, counselor, and role model. Her philosophy in life was as simple as, “It is always better to give, than to receive.” Her most important life role was to be the “heart of her family.” She will be forever remembered in our hearts for her warm, welcoming spirit, and her genuine, unconditional love shown to all that surrounded her. She is preceded in death by her parents, her sister: L.E. Graves; and her brothers: Lawrence Carter, and Glenn B. Issac. She leaves to cherish: her beloved husband, Adolph Owens, loving children: Anthony Owens (Noris), Nikita “Nicki” Smith (Rodney), Christopher Owens Sr. (Tameka), and Courtney Carter; brother: Charles K. Pines, grandchildren: Rodney II, Nalyssa, Ayanna, Christopher Jr. (“CJ”), Annayce, Melania, Kenadi, Da’ron, Jarvis; and a host of close relatives and friends. A Visitation will begin on Thursday, June 24, 2021 from 5:00-7:00pm at Meadowlawn Funeral Home, 5611 E. Houston Street, San Antonio, TX 78220. FUNERAL SERVICE Friday, June 25, 2021 10:00AM Meadowlawn Funeral Home Chapel Interment will be in Meadowlawn Memorial Park Cemetery. Rev. Willie McIntyre will be officiating.
