Kathy Ann Ford, 62 of Diana, passed away August 27, 2021 in the ICU at Good Shepard Medical Center from COVID. Kathy was born on November 4, 1958 in Midland, Texas to Dwain and Wanda Rosser. She graduated from New Diana High School in 1977. Kathy was the administrative assistant at First Baptist Church-Diana for going on 24 years and actively involved in the church. Her family was the source of her strength and spending time with them was when she was the happiest. Kathy will always be remembered for her sweet and loving kindness to all. Her beautiful smile will always be remembered by all that encountered her, but most important will be her love for her Lord and Savior.
Claude knew Kathy was meant for him after their first date. So much so that he proposed six months later, and they got married within 3 months on November 22, 1986. They had a beautiful love story they modeled so well for their children. She showed Claude so much support throughout his firefighter career for 30 years. Kathy loved going on cruises with Claude, with 7 cruises under her belt she was a gold status member. She also loved beach vacations with her children and fishing, you could hear her giggle and laugh from miles away.
