OBITUARY

Hannah Leigh Ford

January 14, 1994January 17, 2021

Hannah Leigh Ford (age 27), a precious child of God, went home to be with her Savior on January 17, 2021 after dying instantly in a car crash in Montgomery. She is the daughter of Tom and Leigh Ford and the oldest of 8 siblings who love her dearly. Hannah spent her short years and beautiful life in the service of God, her family, her church, her friends, and people everywhere. She impacted lives with a kind heart, happy attitude, great wisdom and many talents. As a young girl, she managed her father's business and went on to be a strong voice for conservative principles in Montgomery and across the state, standing for the Biblical definition of marriage and the rights of the unborn. In all her advocacy, she shared the Gospel message that Jesus Christ extends forgiveness and salvation and offers eternal life and glory to all who put their faith in Him. Christ remains the Anchor of those left behind—her parents: Tom and Leigh Ford; siblings: Rebekah Ford Walton (and husband Ben), Maggie, Hayden, Priscilla, Elizabeth, Mary Virginia, Lydia Faith; grandparents: Mr. and Mrs. Larry Hubbard, Martha Ford, wife of the late H.T. Ford, Jr.; many loved aunts and uncles, and a precious group of cousins. She was recently engaged to Winchester Hagans. There will be a visitation from 6-8 PM on Friday, 1/22, at Young Meadows Presbyterian Church (Montgomery). A service celebrating Hannah's life will be held at 11 AM on Saturday, 1/23, also at Young Meadows. Graveside service will be held at Auburn Memorial Park Cemetery (1000 E. Samford Ave., Auburn) on Sunday, 1/24 at 2:00 PM. Seating will be limited on Saturday, but the Ford family would like to extend an invitation to all those who knew and loved our precious girl. In lieu of flowers, we request that donations be made to Life On Wheels - Alabama (www.lowalabama.com).

It is with deep regret that Eagle Forum acknowledges the home going of our lovely board member, Hannah Ford.  On Sunday, January 17, she ascended to her heavenly home immediately as the victim of a three car crash, a block from her own Montgomery home.   We were privileged to have joined with her in prolife and sanctity of marriage causes in which she played leadership roles.  In her unassuming way, she was winsome and wise beyond her years. 

As others have acknowledged, Hannah was widely respected. She made a mark for good in the culture with her well-reasoned columns and her political and policy activism.  She was self taught not just academically, but musically, and she played the violin with Montgomery Symphony members just last month.  She made a mark in the lives of individuals who could see her faith personified.  Her genuine demeanor and clear witness made her a beacon of light for the Lord. 

While we will miss her smiling presence, we are blessed to have known Hannah.  Surely she heard: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant…and has entered into the joy of her Master.”

Her obituary is here.

Visitation will take place from 6-8:00PM on January 22 at Young Meadows Presbyterian Church in Montgomery.   The celebration of life service will be held Saturday at 11:00 AM with limited seating, also at Young Meadows.

From the moment I met you, dear Hannah, you filled my heart with love.
You brought my son Winchester the brightest light of forever.
I still hear the giggles you spread over our life-giggles of pure joy and you found joy in so Much!
Your “that’s amazing. It really is!” will echo through the rooms of my home.
Words cannot express the depth of who you were, nor how much you meant to our entire family. No one has ever been loved by our whole family like you. You were a gift from God to remind us that such a beautifully pure hearted person still exists.
For a year you filled our home,our hearts, our lives. Forever we will love you, forever and ever.
Thank you precious Hannah for loving us. Thank you for loving my son so well. You were the love of his heart, the love I prayed for my son his whole life. Thank you dear girl🧡💔
Heavens song is brighter because you are there.

I will miss our road trips, our talks, our coffee breaks-which were many ❤️. You were always a light in many lives... you were loved and will be missed by many. I kept all your messages. The last one has given us some peace:
“ I can’t wait for heaven!” “No more mess. No more injustice. No more wrong. No more tears.” “God is faithful “. “We can not imagine the future, And honestly shouldn’t. As thy days, so shall thy strength be.” Is the promise.”
This is how you will be remembered. “Well done my good and faithful servant “. Well done my sweet Hannah.

Dr. Ford and family;

Hannah surely left an impact on this world. Thank you for sharing your daughter with the rest of us. I met her through being a patient of Dr. Ford's and her kindness to all the patients was evident. She treated everyone as if she had known them for a long time. Sweet, sweet woman.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. Psalm 34:18

Hey girl. I miss your cooking, I miss your laugh and I miss your kindness. I could say a lot more but it would take a whole day to write that stuff. Thank you for showing me the true love of Jesus, being my real family and never giving up on me throughout the years.

Hannah always came into our church with a beaming smile. She was a kind, interesting young lady who wanted to be a friend to anyone who might come her way. I am glad that Hannah came to Eastwood Presbyterian Church, she loved to volunteer there showing her beautiful trait of serving others. One day I will see her again in our Father’s Kingdom.

Hannah Ford, the oldest child of the Tom Ford family was just 9 years old when the family moved to Montgomery. I remember her bright yet very sweet demeanor when I had the honor and pleasure of visiting with her in her father’s office. Hannah matured into such a loving, sincere, young Christian woman who yielded a bright light on our community. She will be missed. My love and heart goes out to her family.

I met Hannah over a decade ago at her father's physcial therapy clinic. Such a wonderful young lady. She sent me a Christmas card a few times. The world has lost someone special and we weep for that but hers was a soul born to be in Heaven. To Dr. Ford and his family I send my deepest condolences and my tears for the loss of your wonderful daughter Hannah. You all are in my prayers
