Nora Eugene (Ford) Dye We watched as our dear, sweet mother, grandmother, sister and friend passed over to the waiting arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Nov. 20, 2012.
Mom will always be remembered for her smile, youthful laughter and carefree attitude that was so infectious to everyone around her. She lived a very full life until her passing at the age of 78. She was formerly of Tompkinsville, Ky. and was born March 24, 1934, to Willie and Clara (Turner) Ford. The loves of her life were her late husband Don; sons, Mark (Terry), Greg (Helen), Chris (Laura), Doug (Barbie); daughters, Vanessa Collins (Darrell), Donna Allen; eight grandchildren and nine great- grandchildren. Mom also cherished many fond memories of her large family of siblings; four of which have preceded her in death and she is still survived by eight sisters and one brother.
Mom retired in 1986, as an assembly line technician of Western Electric but if you were to ask her about her “job”, it was playing Bingo where she enjoyed the company of many dear friends and acquaintances. During her retirement years, she and Don were avid fans of all her grandchildren’s sporting events and could always be heard above everyone else. Towards her twilight years, she enjoyed the simple things in life…peaceful surroundings of nature, car rides through the countryside and being in the presence of her family and loved ones.
