Dorothy Ford, who will turn 100 years old on June 22, sports her crown she earned when she was named Queen of Hearts at this year’s Valentine’s Party at Golden Ours.

A century of memories

In these unprecedented times we find ourselves in, there is always something to be thankful for, and right now that something is actually a someone.

On June 22, an amazing lady, Dorothy (Perlette) Ford, will be turning 100 years young. We at Golden Ours have the honor to care for this beautiful soul and are humbled to be able to call her family.

Now, 100 years of memories could only be fully captured in the pages of a novel, but this brief synopsis of her life will give a glimpse into how truly blessed this past century has been.

Dorothy Ford was born on the family farm five miles south and three miles east of Madrid. She was the oldest of three children with 15 years separating her and her youngest sibling.

She attended a one room country school in her early years. The school house was only one mile from the farm so she walked to school and her parents would take her to and from during inclement weather.
