Carolyn Ford

June 30, 1941 — December 26, 2018

Carolyn June Williams Ford passed away December 26, 2018, at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, Mississippi, after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and joined God in heaven at the age of 77. Carolyn was born on June 30, 1941, near Smithville, Mississippi. She graduated from Smithville High School and attended Itawamba Junior College before marrying Jerry Ray Ford in 1961. They lived in Virginia, Tennessee, California and Louisiana, but Mississippi was their home. Their final years were spent in Amory. Her adult life was devoted to her family. Carolyn and her husband had four sons, and she spent much of her life caring for her oldest son, Alan, who was autistic. She enjoyed growing flowers, cooking, debating politics and caring for animals. She also had a strong belief in Christ. Carolyn is survived by her son Craig (Stephanie); her brothers R.L. (Shelby), Jimmy (Phyllis) and Teddy; and her sisters Helen Sue, Judy (Bo) and Kathy (Luke). She was preceded in death by her husband Jerry; her sons Alan, Christopher and David; her parents Woodrow and Ruby Green Williams; and her brothers Billy (Joann) and Tommy (Katie). Carolyn will be laid to rest next to her husband and her oldest son in New Hope Cemetery near Smithville. Her family wants to thank everyone who helped during her final days. There will be private family services.
