Annie Ford

Funeral services for Mrs. Annie L. Ford, of Adrian, Georgia, will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at 2 PM at Greater Victory Temple, 511 North Franklin Street in Dublin. Pastor Prenis Edmond will deliver the eulogy. Interment will follow in the Adrian City Cemetery.

Annie L. Ford, born on January 4, 1920, was raised in Adrian where she attended Adrian public school. She joined Adrian Chapel Methodist Church at an early age. She was very faithful and a willing worker. Give Sister Ford the job and she will get it done. She loved the Lord with all her heart and mind. She loved helping people, feeding people and praying for people. In 1940, she married John D. Williamson, Sr., and moved to Dublin. She joined Jackson Chapel CME Church on Gaines Street where she worked faithfully for 27 years. She was on the Usher Board. She moved back to Adrian to take care of her parents. She would also sell boiled and roasted peanuts on the streets of Dublin and Adrian; the children would say “Here comes the Peanut Lady!” She would always use the money for the House of the Lord where it was needed. Sister Ford passed away on March 10, 2020. She will be missed in Adrian and Dublin; we have lost a faithful Legend.

Annie L. Ford was preceded in death by her parents, William and Lula C. Ford, husband, John D. Williamson, Sr., daughter, Corine Williamson Hines, son, Eugene Dixon, John D. Williamson, Jr., granddaughter, Martha Jean Axson, sisters, Mildred Green, Eula Mae Miller, and Clementene Ford, and by a brother, William Ford, Jr.
