Evelyn B. Ford (nee Lambert), 86, of North Ridgeville, passed away Thursday, July 25, 2013, at the North Ridge Skilled Nursing Home, following a two year illness. She was born July 15, 1927 in Premier, West Virginia.
She was the world’s best wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, with only kind words to say to everyone she came in contact with. Her caring and loving ways came through in her love for cooking and always being there for everyone. She worked as the manager for Gray Drug Store Cafeteria, West 25th St., Cleveland. She worked as a line operator for Union Carbide, Cleveland, but the job she loved most was giving of herself to others.
Evelyn is survived by her daughters, Barbara Russell (Larry), Tina Browning (Bob), Irene LaRocco (Donald), and Hilda McAtee (the late Rich); one brother, Jack Deskins (Phyliss) of Premier, West Virginia; seven grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, James F. Lambert and Eva B. (nee Blevins); stepfather, Woodrow Deskins; husband, Robert J. Ford in 1983; grandson, Robert Keith Etchell Ford in 2008; two sisters and four brothers.
Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 P.M., Monday, July 29, 2013, in the Chapel at Sunset Memorial Park, 6245 Columbia Rd., North Olmsted, where services will be held 11 A.M. Tuesday, July 30, 2013.
Contributions, in Evelyn’s memory, may be made to the American Cancer Society, 10501 Euclid Ave., Cleveland OH 44106.
