Ina Catherine Ford Obituary

* The last sentence- I think the word should be through, not though.  Maybe I'm not reading it right. What you think?

Ashland Clipper, April 14, 1927



Ina Catherine Ford, was born November 21, 1916, and passed from this life, April 5, 1927, age 10 years, 4 months and 15 days.

She was a patient little sufferer of the swift ravages of pneumonia, until death released her at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon at the hospital at Ashland, Kansas.

She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lon Ford and is survived by two sisters older, and a brother and sister younger.

She was born into the home on the seventh wedding anniversary of the parents, and her going has truly left a  void in the home as well as the hearts of each, one being the aged grandmother.  Being a bright little student of the fourth grade, she will be long and well remembered by her little school mates and teachers.

Like the Master who went to the garden selecting its choicest flowers, she has been chosen and taken, as the earth is coming forth with spring time beauty to grace the Easter of the Fairer land.

Out of the heart of her suffering she was unable to speak audibly until just before the flight of her little spirit, when she plainly repeated, "Suffer little children to come unto me - for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

Thus the strongest link in the chain of circumstances surrounding the sweet life just closed, shall bind the loved ones to the triumph of Eternity, though the one who first spoke her last words.
