Leslie Ann Ford

December 11, 1944 - October 24, 2013

1944-2013
Our mother, grandmother, sister, and friend Leslie Ann Ford passed away peacefully Thursday October 24, 2013 after a 50-year battle with multiple sclerosis. Leslie was born on December 11, 1944 to Robert and Hazel Ford in Ogden, Utah. Of all the jobs that Leslie had, she was committed to the role of mother. Her greatest joy came in watching her children and grandchildren grow and progress. She loved people, and drew great joy from bringing others love, smiles, and encouragement.
While multiple sclerosis weakened her body, it could never deter her tremendous faith, which only grew stronger as her body deteriorated. Leslie remained true to that faith until the end and when that end came, those around her knew there was a glorious homecoming as she was welcomed into the arms of her parents, her oldest son, and her Father in Heaven.
She is survived by her brothers Steve, Michael and Jeff Ford and their families and her children Chris (Julie) Colt, Deborah (David) Williams and Robert (Angela) Colt and 11 grandchildren; predeceased by her parents and oldest son, Tyler James Colt.
Memorial Services will be held Monday October 28 at 11:00 a.m. preceded with a visitation 1 hour prior to services and Sunday evening from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th St., Ogden Utah.
Interment will be in the Huntsville Cemetery.

Steve, Mike and Jeff, was so sorry to hear of Leslie's passing. I was shocked to also learn from her obituary that Hazel is gone too! I tried for years to find Hazel, she was a dear friend. I remember when Leslie's baby boy passed, I don't think Hazel ever got over that. Leslie was a wonderful lady, prayers to her family. Would love to hear from any of you. God Bless, Violet Payne
