Evelyn Lucille Paluh was called home to our Lord on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at Golden Acres Manor, Carrington, ND.

Evelyn Goddard was born June 11, 1924 to Paul and Rella Goddard in Dillard, OK.  She was raised in the area, along with her four brothers.

Evelyn graduated from Fox High School in 1941.  She married her husband, Walter Paluh in 1946 when Walter returned from active service.  They farmed in the Carrington area until 1948, when they moved to Chicago, IL and raised their family there.  Evelyn and Walter moved back to Carrington in 1978 to enjoy their retirement.

To all who knew her, Evelyn was a loving and caring individual, great cook and enjoyed giving out hugs.  During her retirement years, she was active in the community, loved to garden and going to church.  Passionate caregiver that she was.  Evelyn devoted her whole life to her family and continues to inspire and influence their lives.  Her kindness and love will last forever in our hearts.

She is survived by her brother, Jerry (Ce) Goddard; son, Russell (Carol) Paluh; daughters, Linda Sansone and Karla (Tony) Buckner; seven grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and eleven great-great grandchildren.

Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, Paul & Rella Goddard; her husband, Walter Paluh and three brothers, Edward Goddard, Paul Jr. Goddard and William Goddard.

  1. We will miss her too. Remember her when she was out to the farm with uncle Walt. Enjoyed her sense of
    humor and her smile. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.

  2. Today Evelyn Paluh is being laid to rest at 11:00AM Arizona/California Time
    1:00PM North Dakota, South Dakota and Arkansas Time

    Because we all can’t be together to celebrate her life today, I wanted to share what I will be doing to honor my beautiful Grandmother at 11:00AM (my time) and invite you all to do the same.

    When you go to this link you will find the most beautiful smile from a woman who loved all of you who are reading this very much.


    Then you will find information about the service here

    and here are the song links to the songs she picked as we celebrate her life.

    Years ago I asked my Grandma why she didn’t dance. She told me that she wanted the first time to be with Jesus. I have no doubt she is in heaven dancing up a storm.

    Please share with everyone you know that might want to also pay respects to the most kind, huggable lady I have ever known.
