Barbara was born Aug. 7, 1924, the daughter of the late Albert and Anna Nau Yorks. Barbara spent most of her life living and working on a farm. She was a wonderful cook and baker. Her passions were collecting salt and pepper shakers, completing jigsaw puzzles and word searches, and playing euchre.
Barbara was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Family and friends were her world. A kinder, gentler soul there was not on this earth.
She is survived by a son, Bud (Peggy) Ford of Bath; two daughters, Beverly (Brian) Cerow of Penn Yan and Shirley Ford of Canandaigua; grandchildren, Tim (Heather) Ford, Abby (Miles) DeCastro and Ben Cerow; two brothers, Robert Yorks and Ronnie (Barb) Yorks, both of Honeoye Falls; two sisters, Marian Smith and Millie Hayton, both of Lima; a sister-in-law, Carol Ames of Webster; several nieces and nephews and cousins.
She was predeceased by her husband, Edwin, in 1995, and grandson, Dan Ford.
