Mildred Pauline Weatherford Fowlkes, age 97, died peacefully at her home October 7, 2022. She was the youngest child born to Rebecca Floy Aclin and William Otha Weatherford of El Paso, Ark.
In addition to her parents, Pauline was preceded in death by her husband, Whitman W. Fowlkes; brothers, O.B. Weatherford and R.H.

Pauline graduated from El Paso as valedictorian of her class. She worked many years at Magic Mart in Searcy. She was a wonderful cook, loved working in her yard, and quilting with her Church of Christ quilters. She was a longtime member of Trinity Baptist Church in Searcy, then First Baptist Church in Mountain View. She was a member of the White County and Stone County Medical Center Hospital Auxiliaries. Some of her happiest years were spent attending basketball and football games with her family. Pauline had a notable sweet-tooth and loved a cup of hot coffee shared with friends or family. She trained her grandchildren to play a mean game of dominoes.
The family would like to thank Pauline's wonderful caregivers for their years of service. With their love and devotion, she was able to reside in her home until her death.
