Louisa Wilhelmina Maria (van der Meer) Ford Obituary

Louisa was born December 6, 1936 at Haarlem Hospital, Mariastichting, Netherlands and lost her battle with cancer on September 4, 2016 with her family by her side. "Lous" leaves behind her sisters Truus and Annie; her daughter Mariet; sons Tom, Kenny, Tim, and Mark. "Oma" to Jennifer, Briana, Kayla, Maura, and Maddux, four great- grandchildren and her beloved dog Bella. She is preceded in death by her parents Thearesia and Jacobus, her brother Jacque and her grandson Justin.

While Lous was young, she lived through German occupation in Holland with her family and endured tough times. She later came to the USA and made it her home by becoming a citizen. Louisa, a resident of nearly 40 years in Wheatland CA, worked hard and became a nurse, raised her family, made her home a refuge for those in need, and became known as "Mom and "Ms. Ford" to many.

Louisa was also an animal lover who took in any stray, deaf or blind. She was caring and forgiving, funny yet serious, gentle and feisty and loved to swing her cane at you for any reason. Louisa will forever be missed but never forgotten and always in our hearts. "Wij houden van jou!"

In honor of Louisa, please join us for a "Celebration of Life" ceremony on December 17, 2016 at 11:00 a.m., located at Fremont Presbyterian Church, 5770 Carlson Drive, Sacramento CA 95819.
