We are so sorry to hear of Sis Paulette’s passing. She was a sweet dear lady and will always be cherished. When my family and I went out to the nursing home to do church seeing her smile or when my Mawmaw was there we would see her and her sweet smile just her essence was always welcoming and sweet. She was a dear sweet lady and now she’s with Jesus singing like never before.

Mrs. Loomis was the reason the Loomis Brothers Circus has entertained thousands of folks over many years. I met her one Saturday morning when we had a Main Street Crestview event underway. She walked up to me and asked me if I remembered hearing her sing at her son’s circus earlier that year out at the Baker Arena. I had and I asked how I could reach her son. I called Justin Loomis the next week and that resulted in having the Loomis Brothers Circus in Crestview every November and the elephants and Circus Performers in the Veterans Day parades most years. Next time you take a moment to say a prayer of thanks for the lady who proudly brought the circus to Crestview.
