Paulette Kristine Ford

November 20, 1948 — May 1, 2018

Our community sadly lost a Historical pillar on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, when

Mrs. Paulette Ford passed away. Her contributions include the founding of the

Camfield Tenants Association, where she served as President for 25 years.

Paulette led in the Camfield Estates Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

Demolition Disposition (Demo-Dispo) program, which later became Camfield

Estates; the prototype for all HUD Demo-Dispo development projects nationwide.

Camfield Estates continues to provide suitable, affordable housing, a community

center, resources to families, children, and adults of the city of Boston and sparks

hope and promise for a better future.

Paulette assisted in Boston's city planning efforts to rebuild several

neighborhoods to meet the social-economic and environmental needs of the

communities throughout the city of Boston. Paulette Ford was a selfless, trusted

servant of the City, a community leader, and advocate for equal opportunity and

social justice. Mrs. Ford also served as an Educator for Boston Public Schools for

over 30 years. Following in the foot steps of her mother, Jeannette Bowen, Tri-

State Director for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, she became a proud

member of the organization as well.

Paulette is survived by loving communities in the City of Boston, her

husband of 50 years, Richard Ford, and their children: Jeannette Ford, Angelique

Ford, Tasha García, Paulette M. Ford, and Richard S. Ford II; along with son-in-law

Reynaldo García and her grandchildren Reina García, Brenton Ford, and her

great grandchildren Trinity Ford, and Yandel Roehena.

Paulette is also survived by her siblings: Melanie Wilson, David Purvis, and Raymond Bowen and others.
