Paulette Kathleen Shockney, 47, passed away on July 21, 2022. She was a lifelong resident of Colorado Springs, Colorado. She was a loving and compassionate mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, friend and anchor to her family and to all.

Paulette was fond of wildlife, nature, and the Colorado mountains. She enjoyed travelling to the mountains and capturing its beauty with her photography. She was so talented with her thousands of photographs of nature, wildlife, the moon, planets and beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Her photographs really should have been on display and were quite underrated and undiscovered.
