I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Ms.Mary. Always remember to stay close to God especially during hard times. He invites us to do so and will help us to endure. “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time, while you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” -1 Peter 5:6,7

I met Mary at Lake Mayer years ago. She was a great walker and introduced me to a great group of other walkers. I'm praying for her family after the lost of a great lady.?

Cathryn Dravis, Savannah, Ga

Dear Bob, Your Mary will be missed by many, including the countless lives she touched through the years as she walked around Lake Mayer. You both were any inspiration as you were right by her side very step of the way. I will always remember her friendly, caring heart, her love for her family, and her spunkiness! May the loving Presence and Peace of God sustain you and your family during this time and your happy memories keep you smiling through your tears.

Sherri Goodman, Savannah, GA

My sincere thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Robert Ford and the entire Ford family at this time of loss. We have been neighbors for 31 years and not seeing Mrs. Ford in our neighborhood after this long period of time will be a great loss to the neighborhood and she will be sorely missed. Although this is a loss for the neighborhood, I definitely feel this is a greater loss for Mr. Ford because he and Mrs. Ford were married for 67 years. As time passes, memories will only grow fonder and God will gradually ease your pain.

Mary Evelyn Hall Ford, 86, died peacefully on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at home surrounded by her loving family.

Mary was born in Brunswick, GA on July 8, 1933 to the late Albert and Frances Drawdy Hall. She and her husband, Captain Robert Ford, moved to Savannah in 1970, after his retirement from the United States Marine Corp. Mary’s greatest joy in life was caring for her family as a homemaker, dedicated wife, and loving mother.

In addition to her husband, Mary leaves behind three sons and their wives, Robert and Kay Ford, Thomas and Vickie Ford, and Bryon and Angel Ford; two brothers, a sister, and six grandchildren that will deeply miss her.

Visitation will be held on Monday, September 16, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel. Graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 in Palmetto Cemetery in Brunswick.

Mary’s family would like to thank Hospice Savannah and the many friends and family that helped care for her during her short illness; especially her granddaughters, Angela and Jennifer.
