Wanda Ford, 88, Trafalgar

Wanda B. (King) Ford, 88, passed away peacefully Saturday morning, Sept. 14, 2013, at the Franklin United Methodist Community. She was a resident of Trafalgar.

 

Wanda was born May 15, 1925, in Johnson County, to George W. and Luella (Holman) King, who preceded her in death. She married Wayne N. Ford July 21, 1946 in Indianapolis. He preceded her in death Feb. 24, 2004, after 57 loving years of marriage.

 

Wanda is survived by her children, Allen V. (Regina) Ford and Carol J. (Bob) Litteral, both of Trafalgar; and a brother, Dale (Leona) King of Knoxville, Tenn. She will be missed by her five grandchildren, Barry Ford of Indianapolis, Jeffery Litteral of Brown County, Eric Litteral of Shelbyville, Carlene Byrus of Trafalgar and Colleena Duffer of Franklin; three great grandchildren, Bridget Duffer and Kayle Duffer, both of Trafalgar, Hunter Ford of Bicknell and Megan Cunningham of Greenwood; and one great-great grandson.

 

Wanda was preceded in death by a grandson, Monty Ford; and siblings, Emeril “Bud” King, Mildred Duckett and Rovena Stout.

 

She was a loving wife, homemaker and was a retired sales clerk with Not Just Popcorn in Edinburgh and The Candy Factory. Prior to that, Wanda worked at the garment factory in Franklin for more than 20 years. She enjoyed sewing, oil painting, playing bingo, working on the computer and going to the casino. Wanda loved her family and cherished her time with her grandchildren.

 

The Rev. David Stevenson will conduct a Graveside Service at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Rest Haven Cemetery in Edinburgh. Friends can call from 4-8 p.m. on Tuesday at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry Street, Morgantown.
