Susan M. Ford Obituary

Clark County Clipper, February 28, 1901


Susan M. Ford, born January 24th 1848; departed this life at her home in Englewood, Kansas, February the 20th, 1901.  Aged 53 years and 16 days.

Deceased was married to Hazel Ford about 29 years ago, and of that union there were born eight children, four of whom survive; Emmett, John, Lonzo and Mrs. Libby Sullivan.  She was a devoted member of the Christian church for a number of years.  The funeral was conducted from the home last Thursday by Rev. J. M. Robinson of Dodge City.


Today brings sad remembrance
Of one who went to sleep
In the mighty arms of Jesus -
Her soul He'll safely keep.

She left this world in triumph
For her bright heavenly home,
With no more cares or troubles -
No more her steps to roam.

Her sleep is calm and peaceful,
She is cold and still,
She leaves four Orphan children,
For 'tis the Savior's will,

One soul just now has left us,
One voice we loved us still;
One home on earth is vacant
That never can be filled.

One person now is walking,
With God on streets of gold;
One soul is now rejoicing -
Her works on earth are told.

O! grief stricken hearts, look upward
To the beautiful mansions on high,
Where she joyously waits for your coming.
Content, that t'will be by-and-by.

With Jesus, her redeemer,
She's waiting for us to come,
To follow in Christ's footsteps,
And meet her in his home.

Mrs. John Parks.
Englewood, Kansas.
