Barbara Louise Ashford, 65, passed away September 3, 2012, in Phoenix, Arizona after a courageous battle with cancer.
Her interests included family, gardening, fishing, knitting, cooking and dancing, always being the life of the party. She laughed often and loved much.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Andrew Jackson Gill and Estle Virginia Smith Gill.
She is survived by two sons, Hundley Lynn Ford Jr., of Chicago, IL, and Timothy Darnell Ford and wife Cristy of Lewisburg, TN, 11 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Ashford is also survived by one sister, Shirley Reed and husband Deon of Indiana, two brothers, Andrew Gill of Illinois and Darrell Reed and wife Carla of Indiana, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends also survive.
Barbara confessed a hope in Christ at an early age; she could be counted on for advice to both young and old. She was generous to all, and would give her last to help someone in need.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, September 15 in Lewisburg at New Vision Church of Jesus Christ with Brother Ronnie J. Hudson officiating.
