She entered this life February 17, 1939, in Cleveland, Ohio, the daughter of Edward and Agnes (Pelsnik) Sydlow. Preceding her in death are her parents; husband, Cletus Ford; and two sisters, Beverly Catherine Whittaker and Beatrice Rulli.

Maureen “Molly” was a kind soul, always looking out for others needs. When she needed something, she hated to be a bother and would hesitate to ask. Molly could be found cooking, sewing, and reading. She was a faithful member of the Bryant Ridge Church in Taneyville, Missouri. Molly has left a legacy for her family and is waiting for their arrival to be reunited.

Molly is survived by her daughter, Melinda Schultz of Springfield, Missouri; son, Tracy (Jane) Watts of Clarkesville, Arkansas; six grandchildren: Ike (Amber) Flynn, Trevor Flynn, Stephanie Smith, Cody (Amanda) Schultz, Dakotah Schultz, and Casey Schultz; seven greatgrandchildren: Aeralyn, Irelyn, Kamlyn, Mollee, Caleb, Kaleigha, and Kadence; sister, Kathy Uland of Branson, Missouri; and many other nieces, nephews, and extended family.
