Tribute & Message From The Family

...cherished every moment with a quiet and kind-hearted presence....

Rebecca Jones Ford, age 69, a loving mother and dedicated wife, died on Tuesday, March 15, 2016, after finding herself unexpectedly and tragically in the final stages of cancer. Her last few days came with little warning, as her loved ones gathered to say their tearful goodbyes.

It was well known by those closest to her that her true passions were loving her family and serving her Creator. Her husband and children were the most important things to her and brought her incredible joy. She cherished every moment she spent with her family and prayed for them ceaselessly. She had a quiet and kind-hearted presence, with never a harsh word on her tongue. She lived every day with unmatched selflessness, constantly tending to the needs of others before her own.

During the times when her love and thoughtfulness are missed, we will take comfort knowing that she is waiting in heaven with the God that she loved so fervently in life.

Rebecca is survived by her two children, Jimmy and Hunter; her husband, Jim Ford; and her loving brother, Doug Jones.

The family will receive friends following the memorial service on Friday, March 18, 2016, at 1:00 pm at Coker United Methodist Church, in the small, stone chapel.

Directions can be found by visiting

From Jim (Husband):
My wife was a loving friend and wife.
I loved everything about her, even her quirky ways.
She put care for others in front of herself.
Life will not be the same without her.
Our thoughts and prayers will always be with her.
I will love her for the rest of my life.

From Hunter (Son):
My mom cared for everyone around her with unwavering, unconditional love.
Her thoughts were always centered around the well-being of others.
She was a loving: Christian, daughter, sister, wife, and mother.
We will always miss her, and our thoughts and actions will always reflect her nature, love, and guidance.
Mom, you are now living in our hearts, and we will join you in Heaven when God determines we are worthy.

From Jimmy (Son):
My mom was the embodiment of Corinthians 13, the love chapter. She loved that way.
There are not many in this world I will strive to be like, but she is one.

Mom was always so excited when family would get together and while we were there, she quietly fretted that it would soon be over. Mom was complete and her happiest when she had us all together. She had a servant's heart and always wanted to be doing something for one of her loved ones. It's what brought her true joy and fulfillment.

On March 15th, 2016, Heaven's trumpets sounded, the angels celebrated, and the gates were thrown wide, as mom was welcomed Home.
