Condolence & Memory Journal

Ms. Ford was truly an angel among us. During my years at MMS I did not have her as a teacher but all other interactions with her were pleasant and wonderful. I want her family and all her Ft Wayne friends to know what a wonderful person she was.

Miss Ford was my first grade teacher. She was a lovely and dignified lady, and instilled a love for learning in her students. I still remember her teaching us to count in French! I'm grateful I had the opportunity to be her student.

Miss Ford was my first and most connected teacher. I am saddened to know she is gone. I was her favorite (she may have said the same to others who needed to hear that they were loved).

Thank you Mrs. Ford for all your love that you showed and taught me while at MMS. May you Rest In Peace in heaven and share all the funny stories about MMS kids.

'Miss Ford' was my very first teacher. She taught my older brothers and sister before me and my twin sister. We used to love raiding our mom's tulips, peonies, and dahlias to take to school for her. She was a sweet lady and she will be missed.

She was a special person in my life at Mountain Mission School. She introduced me to the world of reading via loaning me novels and would play records on the stereo in her room, allowing me to enjoy them. Thank you Lord for this angel you loaned us.
