Phyllis Anne Jenkins Ford, 77, of Bealeton, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, June 11, 2018 at Inova Fairfax Hospital with her two loving daughters, Florence and Sharon, and her son-in-law, Danny, by her side.
She was born December 8, 1940, in Virginia to the late Hubert and Lillian Sisk Jenkins.
Mrs. Ford owned and operated Phyllis’s Cleaning Service for 36 years. She was saved at Bible Baptist Church with her sister Beulah and was known for taking in and raising numerous children, always making sure no one was ever hungry. She loved dancing, shopping, flowers — she had a green thumb, going out to dinner and eating crabs.
She is survived by seven children, Florence Helms and her husband, Donald, of North Carolina, Sharon Faulkner and her husband, Daniel, of Bealeton, Patricia Hawkins of Culpeper, William Leroy Hawkins Jr. and his wife, Brenda, of Manassas, Vincent Hawkins and his wife, Debbie, of Culpeper, Sarah Ruth Rowland and her husband, Dale, of Front Royal, Alisa Kay Curtis and her husband, Mark, of Sumerduck, and David Menefee and his wife, Julie, of Stephens City; a brother, Roger “GB” Jenkins and his wife, Virginia, of Gaithersburg, Md., 12 grandchildren, including three very special grandchildren, Dalton Sheffield, Timothy Boswell Jr. and Krystle Rush; a great grandchild, Amelia Faith Boswell, and a special nephew, Robert Jenkins of Remington.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, William Ford, and eight siblings, James Jenkins, Hubert Jenkins, Charles Jenkins, Carroll Jenkins, Ruth Embrey, Edna Johnston, Beulah Furr and Margie Haught.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, June 18, at Found and Sons Funeral Chapel in Culpeper. Dr. Decker H. Tapscott Sr. will conduct the funeral at 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, at the funeral home. Interment will follow in Remington Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be Jim Waddell, Daniel Faulkner, Samuel Dua, Donald Helms, Eddie Wines and Leroy Martin. Honorary pallbearers will be Tim Boswell Jr., Bob Mosier, Dalton Sheffield, Chick Edwards, Howard Groves and Jimmy Ott.
“A special thank you to all the doctors that helped with Mama’s care and a special thanks to Samuel Dua from the Warrenton Dialysis Center.”
