October 30, 1933 — June 27, 2009

Julia Elizabeth Ford, 75, of Mabscott, died Saturday, June 27, 2009, at her home surrounded by family and friends. Born October 30, 1933, in Arista, WV, she was the daughter of Garland Sisk and Marie Cole. Julia was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and homemaker. She was a lifelong resident of Raleigh County, and a member of the Shady Spring Pentecostal Holiness Church.

Julia was the backbone as well as the funnybone of her family. She never missed an opportunity to guide someone or to make them laugh. Almost everyone looked to her as a second mother, someone who would provide shelter from whatever your storm. Her heart knew no boundaries. She reached out to everyone she could and helped in any way. She will be greatly missed here on earth but greatly cherished in heaven where she will rejoin the ones we have lost.
Julia was preceded in death by a son, Keith Alvin Church, and eight brothers and sisters.
