A talented artist, Paiton loved to sketch and paint. She loved music and spending time with her family, especially her cousins. Walks through downtown Hannibal with her friends or hikes up Lover’s Leap to take in the views were a few of Paiton’s favorites. A friend to many, Paiton always took pleasure in the times she shared with her friends and her boyfriend, Alex. Swimming with family, trips to Branson, visits to Houston, TX to visit family, and the Avatar movies made Paiton smile. Paiton will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
