Dorothy S. Ford

October 15, 1929 - October 02, 2018

Dorothy (Schultz) Ford of Williamsville, NY, died on October 2, 2018 shortly before her 89th birthday. Born in Niagara Falls, NY, she graduated from Niagara Falls High School and SUNY Buffalo State, where she studied to be a teacher.

She loved her family above all else and in turn was deeply loved and adored. She was a faithful woman and a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Williamsville, and a former member of St. Paul Ev. Lutheran Church, Niagara Falls, where she remained as an associated member.
She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Donald Ford; her children, Lynn (Joseph) Ford-Somma, Daniel (Carolyn) Ford and Timothy (Rebecca) Ford; five grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter.
A Memorial Service will be held at 10:30 AM on October 13th at St. Paul's Lutheran Church at 68 Eagle St., Williamsville.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St. Paul's Lutheran Church, the Alzheimer's Association or a charity of your choice.

I'm saddened to hear of Mrs. Ford's passing. Such a lovely person and wonderful family. I hope God's peace, the memories of a beautiful life, and the consolation of dear ones will bring comfort to Dr. Ford and his family.
