Virginia Maude (Goff) Paddack, 83, of Benton, Ky. and formerly of both Byrdstown, Tenn. and Sheridan, passed away Saturday morning, Nov. 17, 2018 in Calvert City, Ky.

Born Aug. 14, 1935 in Boxley, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Clarence Vernon and Donna (Burtron) Goff-Lee.

She attended Sheridan High School and would go on to become a licensed cosmetologist. For more than 20 years, she owned and operated her own beauty shop out of her home in Big Springs. She and her late husband Kermit attended the Big Springs Community Church and she was a member of the K.V. Elliott Sheridan Legion Auxiliary.

She married Kermit Eugene Paddack on July 22, 1950. He passed away on April 27, 2011.

Mrs. Paddack was a very humble person, never wanting to be a bother or a burden to anyone else. In addition to her responsibilities with her clients, she helped her husband Kermit with the family farm in Big Springs for many years. She had quite a soft spot in her heart for animals. She loved taking care of the family’s dairy herd, milking by hand for countless years before Mr. Paddack "moved her up in the world", converting their operation over to electric milkers.

If Mrs. Paddack wasn't at the shop or out in the barn, you could usually find her over on the softball diamond with the Big Springs women's softball league. She loved traveling the state to play ball every chance she had. When things slowed down enough that she could catch her breath, she loved to do a little bit of fishin' and spend some time in the kitchen making a batch of her legendary candy. She also never missed a chance to spend some quality time with her family. Her grandkids were her pride and joy. They could do no wrong.

Survivors include three sons, Clement J "CJ" (Barbara Jean) Paddack of Benton, Ky., Brian Gene (Brenda) Paddack of Big Springs and Dale Dean (Penny) Paddack of Byrdstown, Tenn.; a daughter, Alese Lynn Ufkes of Big Springs; 16 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren with one more on the way; a step-brother, Gary (Brenda) Rock of Greenfield; and two sisters-in-law, Lora Goff of Sheridan and Luella Goff of Sumpter, S.C.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; step-mother, Olean Randall; two brothers, Rollie V. Goff and William K. Goff; and by by her canine BFF with a lion haircut, her red chow Muggins. That dog got away with more than the kids and grandkids ever thought about. When it was time to hit the road on any kind of trip, Muggins had his own seat in the vehicle. That special seat nearly roasted him alive on the first outing in the new family van. Nobody realized that the van had heated seats, let alone that his seat was set too high.

Services are scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018 at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 E. 10th St. in Sheridan. Burial will follow at Crown View Cemetery in Sheridan. Family and friends may pay their respects from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 atthe funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be presented to the Alzheimer’s Association.
