Beth Paulette Fleming, age 51 of Nebraska City died November 11, 2022 at her home. Paulette

was born March 31, 1971 in Boise, ID, the daughter of Robert D. and Carol E. (Martin) Fleming.

While she left us too early, she brought many people smiles and joy while she was with us.

Paulette was born handicapped. The family is so grateful to the many people in the Region V

system that provided wonderful support to Paulette since March 22, 1994. It allowed her to live

independently and work in various capacities in the community. You may remember seeing her

ride around Hartington on her bike or around Nebraska City on her scooter. She was so proud

to participate in the Special Olympics and would march down to the newspaper to be sure they

wrote a story about her and her coach. Paulette loved attending First Baptist Church and

participating in activities including AWANA, Vacation Bible School, ladies’ retreats, and potluck dinners. Paulette loved her friends at water aerobics. Thank you to each one of you in

Hartington and Nebraska City who made her life a joy. Prior to her passing, friends and family

got together with Paulette at Region V to celebrate her life. Paulette is survived by her

boyfriend of 15 years, James Johnson; parents: Bob and Carol Fleming of Florien, LA; siblings:

Rebecca (Mark) Boniol of Lake Charles, LA; Mark (Arancha) Fleming and their children:

James, Lucas and Carmen of Bolingbrook, IL; Christine (Scott) Bailey and their children: Claire,

Macy, and Drew of Lake Charles, LA; Sara (Matt) Holloway and their children: Kylie, Jonathan,

Benjamin and Daniel of Omaha, NE; and many other relatives and friends.
