Esther Ford, age 78, passed away at Baystate Medical Center surrounded by her loving family on July 7, 2019. She was born on Nov 23, 1940 in Canton, Ohio to the late James and Anna (Bucci) Sardone. Esther worked as a Registered Nurse for many years at Ludlow Hospital and resided in Wilbraham for 47 years. She was predeceased by her husband Lester L. Ford, her son John Ford and her niece Connie Ann Veillette.

Esther’s wit and intelligence emanated through her bubbly personality, influencing the lives of those she knew. She enjoyed indulging in a good book and perfecting family recipes for her Sunday dinners.

During her favorite season, she continued the family tradition of baking countless Christmas cookies with the ones she loved, and giving them to others.
