Ledford, Gloria (Boyd)-, age 84 of New Carlisle, Ohio, passed away Thursday, May 27, 2021. Gloria was born September 17, 1936 in Stanton, Kentucky, to the late Noga and Mintie (Hall) Boyd.
Gloria was known for her homemade biscuits. She used only White Lily flour, which she sweet-talked the manager at the local grocery store into special ordering for her. She insisted on feeding everyone who entered her door, even if they swore they weren’t hungry. She was a firm believer that every batch of mashed potatoes required two sticks of butter. She was also awarded the prestigious title of “Corn Bread Queen” in 2007.
Gloria took fashion cues from no one. She enjoyed ordering new shirts from catalogs, ripping out the shoulder pads, and cutting the sleeves off—she hated being hot. She was once spotted at the grocery store wearing purple sweatpants and buying black eyeshadow. Gloria enjoyed shopping anywhere. She and the Fashion Bug went together like peas and carrots. Gloria loved her family fiercely. She was a source of never-ending love and support to her three children. She could often be seen at the McDonald’s drive-thru with her grandchildren. Their wishes were her command. She kept all of their favorite treats in her “sweetnin’ drawer” and allowed them access to this magical drawer anytime they wanted, despite their parents’ protests. She had a love for Cassano’s pizza, Maxwell House coffee, Klondike bars, Eric Church (specifically the song “Smoke a Little Smoke”), and all things nonsense. Her laugh was infectious. She was loved by all who knew her. Gloria is proceeded in death by her husband of 56 years, Carl Ledford; four brothers; Noga Boyd, Jr., Eugene Boyd, Kenneth Boyd, and Raymond Boyd. Left to cherish her memory are her three children; Kevin (Rhonda) Ledford of New Carlisle, Ohio, Pam (Cecil) Howard of New Carlisle, Ohio, and Kim (Jimmy Adkins) Ledford-Lakins of Dayton, Ohio; Brothers, Danny (Orene) Boyd and Jimmy (Bonnie) Boyd both of Stanton, Kentucky; Grandchildren, Amy Studebaker, Abby Neff, Michael Couch, Mindy Couch, Kaylynn Lakins, Josh Garcia, Jimmy Adkins, and nine great-grandchildren.
Visitation will take place at Davis & Davis Funeral Home, Stanton, KY, Thursday, June 3, 2021, from 12:00pm-2:00pm. Funeral immediately to follow at 2:00pm. Burial in the Ledford Cemetery, Pine Ridge, KY.
