WALKER Paulette E. Walker, 60, had a courageous battle with cancer and she went to her heavenly reward with the angels singing on June 24, 2013. She was a native of Jacksonville. Paulette retired from the City of Jacksonville after 24 years as the Paymaster for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. She was a former Sunday School Teacher at First Baptist Church of Jacksonville Beach. Paulette loved to fish and was Anglerette of the Year multiple times and currently holds the JOSFC record for the largest kingfish of 59.5 lbs.

She was predeceased by her father, Felton Perdue, Sr. and in-laws Mary Jean Walker and Robert M. Walker. She has numerous nieces and nephews on both sides of the family and cousins and many other loving relatives and friends and the huge fishing community including the JOSFC, which she held the office of secretary. The family will receive friends from 6-8pm Thursday (TODAY), June 27 at Hardage-Giddens Funeral Home, 1701 Beach Blvd. Jacksonville Beach, FL.
