Glenda Faye Ford December 2, 1939 - July 18, 2020
Glenda Faye Ford, was born on December 2, 1939 to the Reverend Pearlie and Mother Earlean Weaver. Glenda was raised and educated in Conway, S.C., where she met and married Frank Ford of Plantersville, S.C. they later moved to Brooklyn, NY, where they had three beautiful children.
Glenda, lovingly known as “Foxy Faye”, was the eldest of 13 children and the matriarch of the family. Loved for her kind and sweet spirit, she showed her love through her cooking and hosting family functions. The family often joked that her cake slices were so thin, you could see through the slice. Always the life of the party, Glenda would welcome everyone to her home with open arms and a plate of food.
Glenda retired from a career in banking and after many years of faithful service she devoted herself to God. Having a beautiful singing voice, she and five of her sisters formed the gospel group, “The Weaver Sisters”. The Weaver Sisters were well known in the Brooklyn church community and blessed all who had the honor of hearing them sing praises to God.
As a grandmother, Glenda played an instrumental part in the upbringing of two of her grandchildren, Joshua and Breanna White. They shared a very special bond that will always be remembered. Having two children serving in the Air Force, Glenda was fortunate to travel with them to many countries; visiting places like Japan with her son and Germany, England and Italy with her daughter.
Glenda departed this life on July 18, 2020 at University Hospital in Augusta, GA. She left to cherish her memory: three children and two daughters in law, Linnard Ford (Carolyn) of Woodbridge, VA, Clifton Ford (Joyce) of Queens, NY and Gwendolyn Ford of Hampton, VA; three precious grandchildren, Shavon Ford, Joshua and Breanna White; one beautiful great-grandchild, Journei Ford. Siblings, Carolyn Mitchell of Augusta, GA, Rachel Jones of Baltimore, MD, Ethel Gilliam of Edenton, NC, Ervin Weaver (Charlotte) of Reading, PA, Jacqueline Weaver of Brooklyn, NY, and Debra Alston (Albert) of West Haven, CT, as well as brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away.” (Rev 21:4)
