Mary Pauletta Robillard-Cobb of Oklahoma City went to be with her LORD and Savior on November 9, 2023, at the age of 81.
Paulette was born March 1, 1942, in Wellington, TX to James F. “Slim” Emmert and Thelma Mae Carrick Martin. After graduation she moved to Oklahoma City where she met her first husband. They then moved to Denver, Colorado, where she decided to attend Cosmetology School. This is where she found a hidden talent that added many facets to her life. It is also where she met her lifelong friend Joanne Hale. After 15 years, they moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where the adoption of their son was finalized. But, after a short 18 months, they moved back to Oklahoma City. In 1980 she started her career with Hertz Reservations Center. After only one year she was promoted to supervisor. She loved her job and retired in 2007 with over 26 years with the company.
Paulette enjoyed home projects, traveling, cooking, sewing and quilting. But her passion was gardening. In her own words “Digging in the dirt provides solaces for me that I get in no other way. I find great satisfaction in watching things grow and to beautifying my surroundings.”
Paulette is preceded in death by her parents; husbands Paul E. Ferguson, Richard L. Robillard, James R. Cobb and brother-in-law Richard Krepp.
Paulette leaves behind her son Neil Ferguson and stepdaughter Lori Correia and husband Walter of Oklahoma City; sister Bonita F. Krepp of Ephrata, PA, and brother James F. Emmert and wife Dulan of Elgin, OK; and a host of extended family.
