Mary Lou Etta (Lou) Paddack, 82, went to be with her Lord & Savior on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. Service: 10am, Monday, January 13 at South Park Baptist Church, 7201 Crowley Rd., Ft Worth, Texas 76134. Internment to follow at Laurel Land Memorial Park.

Lou was preceded in death by her parents Luther & Vada Driskill and sister, Mildred Jones. Lou met and married her husband Buddy Paddack in 2014 after they both had previously lost their spouses. They were so happy together and experienced many adventures in their four and half years together. She loved cruises, the Plaza Theater in Cleburne, cards with her Granbury friends and anyone who would challenge her to a game of train. She loved to help Buddy with his Train hand even though she supposedly never looked at his dominoes! Lou loved her family unconditionally and showed that with her love and support and sometimes her constructive criticism. She wanted everyone in her family to be the best person they could be, and above all, she prayed for each one to know and love the Lord. She will be dearly missed by her family and many friends.

She is survived by her husband, Buddy Paddack, daughters, Debbie Yates and husband Bobby, Cathy Falls and husband, Robert, Sue Lewis and husband, Paul, Pam Maynor and husband, Shawn, Barry Paddack, Lisa Paddack, 15 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

I was blessed to know such a wonderful person. I still remember the summer you gave me all the plum juice to make jelly. And you always made me feel so welcome. I will miss you.
