Mittie Hall Ford Longtime grocer

December 12, 1992

Mittie Hall Ford, who operated a grocery store with her husband for many years, died Tuesday at Good Samaritan Hospital of complications of cancer.

Services for Mrs. Ford, who was 95 and lived on Sheridan Avenue, were to be conducted at noon today at St. Paul Baptist Church, 3101 The Alameda.

She and her husband, James Ford, came to Baltimore in 1928 and owned and operated Ford's Grocery Store at 829 George St. for 30 years before they retired in 1964. Mr. Ford died in 1967.

The former Mittie Hall was a native of Statesboro, Ga., and was educated in Georgia, where she taught for a time before moving to New York City to study business.

She met her husband in New York, and they lived in Chicago for about five years before moving to Baltimore.

She is survived by two daughters, Helen Utley of Baltimore and Gloria Gilmer of Milwaukee; a brother, Lee Hall, and a sister, Gertrude Nedd, both of Statesboro; and two grandchildren.
