Jerone Rosalie (nee Barone) Ford, age 81, passed away while surrounded by her family on August 11, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband, William R. Ford; her parents Vincent and Antoinette Barone; and her brother, Vincent Barone.

Jerone loved all things outdoors, from camping to working in her yard and feeding the birds, the “chuck” family, squirrels, and deer. She was a homemaker by trade who loved to bake, and she especially loved her family. Along with baking, she also had a love for food. She also enjoyed watching TV, including golf, “Supernatural,” the soaps, and cheering on her Lions.

In memory of Jerone and in lieu of flowers, please remember to feed the birds.

Ann,Tom, Kenny, Carol and Family,  We were saddened  to hear about  Jerone.  Your Mom was special to our family as was your Dad.  A friendship for my Mom that spanned over 5 decades.  Mom said she was like a sister.  They celebrated  their birthdays a year ago at the Colonial Kitchen (Scotts) in Dorr.  We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Ann and family I'm so sorry for your loss.  Prayers and hugs for your family.  I loved your mom, she was a hoot. On another note I don't have a way to get a hold of you.  Did you hear that Randy passed away unexpectedly sunday the 9th.

We have such fond memories of "Jerry" and the Ford family.  We moved into the neighborhood at the same time and raised our young families.  Jerry and Carol babysat for us and our kids loved those times with them. We had lots of things in common.  Bill and Dave both worked at GM. They loved gardening and the beautiful birds.  Jerry cared for the lawn. She used her garden tractor to keep it nice and neat. She had a jolly personality and raised a great family. RIP dear friend.

I will hold nothing but the fondest memories of the basement Christmas parties, going to your house on the 4th of July with Uncle Bill firing his canon. I can still hear still hear you yell “Bill knock it off & he would laugh. Throwing my mom in the pool to see how warm the water was. Playing cards and making pizza on Saturdays w my parents. Thank you for being so special. I wish I could have seen you one more time. Love you greatly. Melissa (Baar-niece )

Jerry had no Idea how much of a privelegeI considered it to be able to visit the Ford house. Almost all my good childhood memories happened there. When I opened my store she said " Robert, if yr still open in 6 months I will buy flooring from u " she was a woman of her word
