    Hi Mom, your life was so much more than the short notice on this page. You were born in Little Rock, Arkansas, on March 6, 1936 as the youngest daughter of Howard Leverett Ford and Jewel O’Dell (Smith) Ford. You married Dad, Clay Rice Taylor, in Little Rock on September 2, 1953 and raised four sons: Dennis, Kent, Tim and me. Following Dad’s death, she married another good man, Ben James Ewing, in Benton on November 14, 1986.

    You grew up in Arkansas then, as a military spouse, lived in Alaska, Texas and Germany before settling down in Saline County. You were an avid bowler and member of bowling teams throughout her life. You also enjoyed traveling across the United States and park hosting in Arkansas as a member of the Thundering Sams RV Club.

    I miss you.

    – Your Number 3 Son
