Obituary

 

Wilma Gooch, 83, widow of Albert “Sam” Gooch, Jr., was called to eternal rest on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at Stanford Care and Rehabilitation. Born on March 25, 1939 in Liberty, KY to the late Marshall and Edith Wilkinson Patton. She attended Indian Creek School in Casey County and retired as a cashier from Food Fair and worked for Mrs. Butcher for many years. She was a faithful member of Bethel A.M.E. Church-Boneyville, in Stanford, where she was the President of the Usher Board and served on the kitchen committee. Wilma loved to cook and she did it well. She prepared and set the table with her homemade recipes everyday while she was able. Wilma loved her family and friends unconditionally and hosted her annual “weenie roasts” to gather the ones that she loved so much to fellowship with each other while her health allowed.

In addition to her parents and husband, Wilma was preceded in death by one sister, Gladys Bridgewater and three brothers, Donald Ray Patton, Clifford Patton and James Marshall Patton.

Wilma leaves behind to cherish her memory, one son, Jerry Gooch (Vickie) of Danville; three sisters, Willamenia Crawford of Danville; Beulah Horry (Henry) of Romulus, MI and Loretta Jean Short (Ray) of Science Hill, KY; four brothers, Lester Patton (Betty) of Junction City, KY, Willis Patton (Dorothy) of Lexington, Thomas Patton (Karen) of Wayne, MI and Kenneth Patton (Bonita) of Stanford; and best friend, Ruth Lucas; she is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends and will truly be missed.

Visitation will be on Monday, April 25, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Spurlin Funeral Home in Stanford, KY.

Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. at Bethel A.M.E. Church-Boneyville in Stanford with Rev. Reginald Pullum officiating. Burial will follow at Gooch Cemetery in Stanford. Before the funeral, there will be visitation at the church from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
