    Instead of flowers, the family asks that monetary gifts be donated to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering via First Baptist Church Corsicana or through another local Southern Baptist Church.

    Thursday morning, February 25, our mother, Della Louise Ford, who lived her life in the presence of Jesus, entered fully into His presence. Louise was born April 23, 1930 in the old Navarro Clinic on Collin St., Corsicana.

    Mother loved Christ. She served Him faithfully in churches throughout Texas, Maryland and England. She served as President of WMU groups in the Baptist churches she attended and served as Director of WMU for Colorado and Wyoming.

    She loved Christ's people, especially those who were lost and the most vulnerable. She went on mission trips to the Philippines, Europe and Mexico. She served the Laotian congregation at Lake Highlands Baptist Church in Dallas, the families of the prisoners at the Hospitality Houses at Huntsville and Tennessee Colony, and single moms and their children in Corsicana. She taught adult and children Bible studies in Sunday School, led in GA's and worked numerous years in Vacation Bible School. When she was a young mother, she had her children in worship every time the church met. Normally she was the last to leave church on Sunday and Wednesday nights.

    Mother loved her family. Thursday morning she was met in heaven by her husband Carey Ford, Jr., daughter Patricia, granddaughter Christi Adams, mother Ora Turner, dad Dellie Allen Turner, sister Mary Katherine Lewis, brother-in-law Truman Lewis, numerous aunts and uncles. She is grieved by her children Al and Tommie Ford, Kathy and Mark Tapscott, Linda and George Adams, Carey and Nancy Ford, and Phil Ford, 15 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, and scores of family members and friends.
