Kathleen Louise Gookin-Ford
Kathleen Louise Gookin-Ford was born October 7th, 1963, in Miles City, MT. Kathleen passed away September 3, 2021, surrounded by her family and friends due to complications from fighting cancer for many years.
She lived her formative years in Miles City, taking a high school trip to France, and graduating from Custer County High School in 1982. She attended Ellendale Bible College in North Dakota and was the first Preschool teacher at Trinity Lutheran Church in Miles City. She also taught at a Christian school on Guam and several preschools in Billings. She enjoyed SCA events where she met her husband Jeffrey Ford whom she married October 19, 2001.
Kathleen is survived by her daughter Emilia Grace; also her parents Helen Gookin, Lavere and Shellie Gookin; siblings Elizabeth and Dean Belcourt, Mary and Clay Comstock, Sarah and Casey Stephan, and Robert and Mary Gookin; several aunts, Fran, Sandra, Jackie, Jan, Norita; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Preceding her in death was her brother Jon, and special Uncles Gerry and Allen.
Kathleen was a "wonderment" to her family and many friends. If you asked anyone, they would be convinced that they were best of friends because that is how she made them feel: loved, important and that they counted! She will be so missed by all of her family and friends. Now she is safely in the arms of Jesus.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, September 25, 2021, 11:00 a.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church.
